sounds like the freezer evaporator has iced /frosted up and you will not get cold airflow through it. try a 24 hour defrost to clear it. then check fridge cooling.

The defrost cycle is not happening like it should, that's what causes the block of ice (and poor air flow). If you have all that defrosted look at the defrost bi-metal, it usually is a small round disk with a couple wires coming out of it and it's clipped on the coils. When it's cold enough, it passes electricity to the heat elements, when it gets hot enough it "opens" and kills power to the heat elements. If that is bad (swollen cracked or bloated) and not passing electricity to the elements that's the problem. Another item would be the defrost timer itself, if it doesn't work (no clock motor turning) then it will never go into defrost. And the last and usually least expected failure would be the heat element themselves not working

This to me sounds as if either your gas is not circulating through the refrigeration system, or you have a problem with thermostat. If you have recently physically moved the fridge and then powered the appliance up on the mains without letting the gas settle, then you could have damaged the fridge. And there is not really a lot you can do about this, unless you want to call out a refrigeration engineer to re-gas your fridge and assess the circulation of the pumped cold air flow.
Other problems aside of gas and thermostat could be associated with the pump (if your model has one fitted), and with this in mind, i have a good mind to have a look at the SIOS (spares, Information, Ordering, System) disc for zanussi vendored models and then get back to you once i have a further solution for you. However, I will need your make and model of zanussi fridge, so if you have this to hand it will be most appreciated. In the sad event that you dont have the paperwork/ manual for the fridge, then you can find the manufacturers model details on the rear of the fridge. however, when you move the fridge, you will need to let it stand again before powering up the unit after repair, and this should be done for a period of no less than 24 hrs, and no less than 28hrs if your appliance is a fridge freezer combi.
So once again, when i recieve further information regarding your make and model of refrigerator, then i will be able to fully investigate this matter for you, and try to come up with your most appropriate solution..
In the mean time, i bid you take care, and hope to hear from you soon

Re. Zanussi ZK87/46EFS Fridge Freezer
The same symptom occurred in our fridge freezer. The fridge compartment warmed up whilst the freezer compartment continued to keep temperature.
The cause of our problem was diagnosed as a frozen sensor that controls a flap, that controls the flow of cold air from the freezer compartment up into the fridge compartment. We were advised to power off the fridge freezer (removing all food and trays from the freezer unit first), and to leave it to defrost for 24hrs. We needed to place a few towels on the floor of the freezer compartment to soak up the melt water. After 24hrs we followed the power up instructions in the manual (versions are available online if you have lost yours). Within a few minutes it was obvious that the fridge compartment was being cooled – Problem solved :)

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.
