Question about Refrigerators
Well lets see providing the freezer fan works remove the bottom of the feezer I am guessing this is a standard admiral frig with the evap in bottom and not across the back. These fridges have a glass tube defrost heater that gets moisture in them and burns out the heater and leaves broken glass that housed the heater in evap tray if it's heavily frosted thaw it out so you can find the leads to the heater to check it with a meter. Sometimes they will be so iced up the bottom freezer panel is hard to get out....or you can find the timer advance it in a defrost and clamp on an amp probe to the common and it should draw around 4-5 amps.
If it's defrosting fine, makes ice and the fresh food section is cold as normal then I would assume it's your 'defrost thermostat'.
Also check Compressor.
Just to add another possiblity, the thermostat itself maybe about shot. Thus running constantly and not cooling properly
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using "Fixya".
