    I can see no fans , fins or metal grid - under behind or inside .  There is only a small compressor under & behind & a " cooling "? element inside top ( where the freezer would normally be ) I did find a small hole in the cooling element at the end of its  "coil"  also the unit can get frosty when i unplug it & replug , but within 15 min it's back to 45 degrees .  I plugged the hole & got pretty much same results !   Does it lose freon through that hole or is that an overflow ??

Can you check to see if dust has accumulated under the refrigerator and the fan under the refrigerator is blowing warm air?
If the fan is blowing correctly and you find dust blocking the condenser area beneath the fridge try to blow it out or vacuum it away from the fins or metal grid. Just a small amount of dust there or a leaking door gasket will make it hard for the refrigerator to cool properly. Also check that nothing has blocked the entrance or the exit of the condenser warm air area. Hope I have helped you today, Thanks Sea Breeze

    Some refrigerators put the heat exchanger on the back or like some those you see now called dorm fridge the heat exchanger is placed inside the outside walls and as it cools inside the heat is passed through the outside walls. I tried to find a good view of yours and found only a crosley sales link and think I see a current model similar to yours called the All Refrigerator. I'll put the link below. Click below-----http://www.crosley.com/products/kitchen/...**.app1

    The small hole in the element you see will affect the cooling, and the remaining freon will need removed the hole sealed with good epoxy put in the hole, a vacuum for about hour and recharged by someone that is good with refrigerators. Hope this helps, Sea Breeze

How cold should the freezer get?


I am assuming you are referring to Fahrenheit.. 16 is a little warm for a freezer. They usually stay around zero to 10 degrees above or below.

On my GE GTH21SCXSS, top freezer bottom refer, the freezer and refrigerator settings are on the coldest settings and the freezer won't go below 15 degrees and the refer won't go below 43 degre


Do you see any ice buildup on the back panel of the freezer? You may need to remove the back panel to see if the coils are iced over. Post back your results.

Wow
Ican not understand what you need.
So I am guessing here
Ice has built up on the evaporator coil stopping air flow to the food section.
Try manually defrosting the fridge. If this works then the auto defrost cycle has failed and you will need to get a technician to help you

Sub zero 532. freezer works fine --0 degrees. fridge wont get below 50 degrees. cleaned condenser fins- still no decrease in temp


check the fan that runs between the freezer and the fridge --check fan for ice blockage -debris-or damage / clean or clear blockage --if not running test wiring and connections as well as motor /repair or replace //also check fan damper is not frozen or blocked its flap that opens and closes for air to flow //----ur fridge side is cooled from the the freezer side the cold air is blown in from the freezer if fan or damper is not working correctly than fridge is usually warm and freezer is working properly

Either the defrost timer is going out or it could be your defrost bimetal thermostat that is located behind the back wall in your freezer. Both parts are cheap and easy to install. I would replace both.
