My fridge Temperature display shows 9 deg, I have set it to 4 deg, I can hear Fan and compressor running, I switch off the fridge for 10 min and then restarted, the Temperature was showing 13 deg.
I switched on the Turbo mode and in 20 min the Temperature c ame down to 9 deg. Temperature will not go bellow 8 or 9 deg.
Can you help

Your description is quite complete but is rather baffling. Pls bear with me while we process by elimination. A few basic/working ideas:
most designs call for a single compressor to cool the freezer;
the cold air in the freezer is drawn towards the fridge to cool that area;
this is performed by a fan drawing air in the freezer through the evaporator;
most would have a vent or air pathway to guide the freezer air;
all would have thermostatic control to set the desired temperature;
some designs have two thermostatic control , 1 for the freezer, 1 for the fridge.
As applied to your concern:
compressor is working since freezer is OK;
fan is working as you posted but is the air drawn from the freezer, better still, is the air forced/vented into the fridge?
could you please check that the air is strongly blown into the fridge area;
a little experiment, open the fridge door, look for and press on the door switch, the light should go out, after a lengthy seconds, the fan should trigger on, not only would it be audible, you would notice the frozen air swirling inside the fridge area. If you hold on long enough to the dorr switch, the compressor should kick in (if it is not already running) since the thermostat of the fridge area (if one is present) would sense that the fan is turning but the fridge area is not cooling.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

You just have a simple operational and maintenance issue.
Neither your compressor or fans should run continuously.
First, you need to clean your condensing coil. You did not provide a model number so you either have a flat cooling coil in the front bottom, or a canister type in the back right hand side. This coil dissipates the heat. If it is plugged up your compressor and fans will run trying to keep up with the unit temperature settings. This can make a difference as much as 40 degrees. The toe plate, bottom front is either held in place with a screw on each end. If no screws, there is a clip on each end. Just pull and it will pop out.
Second, You only have only one cooling source and that is your freezer. The freezer will try to satisfy itself first before the fresh food section. If you set the temperature controls beyond the unit design settings your compressor and fans will keep running. Set your freezer to -2 or +2 Deg. F., and set your fresh food section to 35-40 Deg. F.
Third, Check your door gaskets. make sure there are no gaps.
1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses. 2. Can you hear the compressor running. If not do you hear any clicking sounds. 3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator. 4. Wait one hour. 5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man. 6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man. try this
Is the compressor clicking? If so, the pressure may be too high. tHis happens if the temperature control is lowered too soon after the compressor cuts off, or if house power fails for a shorrt period, etc.
1. UNPLUG the power cord.
2. Set the temperature dial to the settings you want.
3. Close doors and wait a full 10 minutes (more if you don't get impatient).
4. After 10 full minutes, plug power cord back in. It should start now.
5. Try not to open fridge for an hour or so, or until you hear tyhe compressor cycle off.
Is the fan that moves the air from the freezer to fridge running If there is a switch in cabinet somewhere the freezer door would contract it, with door open push in switch hear the fan both are good. Don't hear fan check evaporator or freezer fan and that switch it may be a duel switch open light closed fan run. Tricky there are light switches, when out light on or when switch is in its lights out
