Hi: Your defrost heater or defrost timer is bad. There is an off chance your freezer or fresh food compartment are so full they block the airflow. If not full, Remove the food from the freezer, unplug the ref. and hit the back wall of the freezer with a hair dryer. Avoid plastic components as they will melt. When your defrost mechanism fails frost will form where it shouldnt and block the airway to the fresh food compartment. That's why the freezer still works. That will get you a week or two of fresh food getting cold. If your'e handy remove the back panel of the freezer at the bottom will be a glass tube with a metal coil in it. If the coil is broken buy the new defrost heater and install it. If not look for a defrost timer. Use the model number of the refrigerator to find the part. www.searspartsdirect.com will have a parts schematic to help you find out where the timer is located. There shipping is high so try to buy it locally. I hopes this helps, Jeff

Push gently on the back wall of your freezer. If you hear a crunching sound resembling snow under foot or dry leaves being stepped on, you have a frost buildup. Your fan may still be working, but your entire refrigerator depends on that fan being able to draw air over those blocked and frosted up coils. The most common cause of this is a dead defrost thermostat. The second and third problems are the defrost timer or defrost heater. Spin your defrost timer (located near your Temperature control, it's in a small hole with no screw in it) till it clicks and check the freezer wall to see if the frost starts to steam and melt. If not, unplug the fridge2_bing.gif, then try disconnecting the defrost thermostat (usually clipped onto the main freezer coil at the top) and join those 2 wires together. Replug and see if the heater starts steaming. If it doesn't it is most likely the timer. The heater is usually the last thing to die, unless your heaters2_bing.gif are encased in glass. In which case a quick visual inspection for decay and separation will pinpoint the problem.
