This usually happens when your Defrost (heater) is not working, Firstly Get your Defrost Timer Checked. If that is the problem then the timer is much easier to be replaced. Depending on the models the Timer prices differ from $10 to $115.
If this is not the issue then Inside the freezer is the Defrost Heater Placed, and you will figure out that this unit is having the problem due to which the channels to pass the Cool air into the Fridge is blocked and not keeping it cool. You will have to check if this Heater can be fixed or replaced. *Again this cost will Differ based on the models*

FRIGIDAIRE FRS6HR4HW2 FRIDGE IS SOMEWHAT COOL BUT FREEZER IS SAME TEMP AS FRIDGE I HAVE POWER TO THE EVAP FAN BUT FAN IS NOT WORKING COULD THIS CAUSE THE FREEZER NOT TO GET COLD ENOUGH TO FREEZE


Yes, if your evap is fully frosted, and the fan is not working. The frosted evap will keep it cold but since the fan cant move the cold air from the evap it'll be cold, but not as cold as you'd like.

Refrigerator not cooling. doesn't seem like fan is blowing. freezer still working


all that happens is the cold air from the freezer gets blown into the fridge section by the evap fan motor brhind the inside back wall of the freezer so if you open the freezer door and don't hear the fan blowing i would say that yes you do have a bad evap fan motor and that's why the fridge section is warm.next time send the brand name and model number so i can help you better

What should I check if the refrigerator is not cooling/working, but the freezer works fine?


first off what kind of frige and model number,the freezer feeds the fridge so no cold air is being blown into the fridge section from the freezer,open the freezer door,if you don't hear the fan blowing you could have a bad evap fan motor,put your hand on the back wall of the freezer,if there's ice or like snow on it you have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,heater,timer or board depending on the machine,this is why i need the model number,also on some machines there is a damper that opens and closes to let the cold air into fridge section or the door was left open and the air vents are froze up,most common on bottom mount freezers,look at the freezer ceiling and packages,if you see frozen water droplets on the ceiling or packages it's a sure sign the door was left open.hope this helps.

Freezer works fine but fridge has lost its temperature.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp

..
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You are probably correct that it is the evap motor. If you are seeing frost on the back wall then there is probably some ice built up around the motor and the fan blade is hitting it.
Try defrosting the freezer and look very closely all around the seal for the freezer drawer. It is common for moisture to freeze in the self closers in the drawer rails and not let the drawer close completely on one side or the other. If this happens the small gap will allow the freezer to frost excessively.
Sorrry to be slow in responding. I have been very busy this week and have not been on line very much.
