I'm a maintenance man with the city housing.I have the same problem with magic chef refrigerators of not getting cold on bottom.I found out sometimes when drain in freezer box gets block when it defrost the water builds up then freeze up blocking the vent hole stopping the cold air from reaching the bottom compartment.Solution Turn off refrigerator drop the thermostat housing in bottom compartment and clean drain.Then remove rear freezer wall disconnected fan than manually melt ice build up in freezer coils and bottom vent hole with hot water boil it in a small pot for quicker melting time..Pour on coils until ice melts.make sure you put a pot inside bottom compartment to catch water when you melting the ice on coils and vent hole.When ice is melted.Turn back on the refrigerator hook back fan.And test coil heater manaully turn heater timer and see if the heater comes on.If it's ok start putting everything back together.Set your thermostat.Note this want I do when I'm in a tenant apartment on a repair.If you got time and just leave the both refrigerator door and let room temperature melt the ice.Which can take hour's.

Check to make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working and not blocked. This delivers the cold air to the refrigerator. The fan should run every time the freezer calls for cold.

Refrigerator is not getting cold although the freezer appears to be working fine


can you hear the evaporator fan motor running in the freezer? this fan motor pushes the cold air from the freezer to the food section to keep it cold. you may have to replace the evap. fan motor. also, check for any kind of ice build up around the evap fan motor.

the problem here is the defrost element is not coming on, the problem is the control board in the fresh food compartment is defective and not telling the element to defrost. Therefore your cooling coils are impacted with ice which keeps freezer cold, and sensor in freezer says everything is ok and therefore sends nothing to refrigerator. Replace the defrost control board, Thaw out the cooling coils in freezer, and your back in business
