How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php
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 In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.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 can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

First the refrigerator portion lost cooling but the freezer was fine over time the freezer esentially turned into a refrigerator. It is no longer making ice or keeping things frozen, but is about as cool...


the evaporator coil is frozen over and cant release cold air due to this,defrost the unit remove rear panel inside freezer and troubleshoot the defrost heater and thermostat and also make sure the fan near this coil is running, on the evaporator coil as,you cant blow cold air thru a coil covered by ice

Refrigerator not keeping things cool and freezer


this is usually caused by dirt either around the fan if its a built in fridge, or around the cooling fins at the back of the fridge.Make shure you unplug the fridge before investigating what is wrong.
