The fan in the freezer is not blowing the cold air into the fridge through the damper or more likely the damper isn't open. It's controlled by the fridge temp control knob. If it's an electronic control then it's probably bad. If it's just a mechanical knob then the linkage connecting it to the damper may be disconnected.

SOURCE: right side of refrigerator not cooling; frezzer working great

The coil is the thermostat that controls the damper which allows more or less cold air into the fridge compartment and should be put back as you found it. Very important. The problem is that the freezer is not defrosting, hence the ice build-up on the back wall. Either the defrost timer is faulty or the defrost heater is blown. There are two thermostats behind the freezer panel, one in line with the fan and one in line with the heater and they will be clamped to the pipework. Both these thermostats should be closed when iced up. If the fan is not running, that could be faulty too or its thermostat.

Refrigerator is warm freezer cold?


Please check the settings of temperature control (Thermostat Switch) in the freezer side. Quite possible that the setting is on low cooling or completely on the left side. In case the cooling by moving the knob on the right or if numbered put it on the highest and see the results. If the problem still persists then you have to get the gas checked up. It may have leaked out. You can do that with the help of a technician but before you have checked the Thermostat Switch.
