Check your temp. settings, Sometimes we move the controls by accident. Also check the fan in the freezer, make sure it is woriking properly, this fan is the one that blows cool air into fridge compartment.
Check the vents coming into the frig from the freezer and with the fan in the freezer blowing feel if there is any air blowing into the frig., if not then check for ice buildup in the freezer. sometimes the ice will block the fan and or vents. Defrost if there is frost and ice buildup.
If the back panel on the inside of the freezer section is all snowed up looking you have a defrost problem, if the fan in the back of the freezer is not running, you may have a bad fan motor or a bad defrost terminator, hold freezer door switch closed with your hand and listen for fan.
If the fan by the compressor stopped on the outside of unit or the condensor coils are badly in need of cleaning it also will not cool properly.
Lastly, a leak or bad compressor may be the cause.(unit usually runs without shutting off, hope this helps
check the fan in back of freezer check or proper running condition not stuck or frozen also make sure not blocked by food the fan takes the air from freezer and blows it down into fridge area to cool it also check for ice build up in the fan housing and thaw as necessary
you have a defrost problem, could be bad adaptive defrost board,t-stat heater,when you open freezer door listen for fan if fan is blowing check the t-stat,look at it and see if it has a buldge on it,sometime you can see this and tell it's bad,you'll need a meter to read out the heater and other parts to see whats bad,might be a good idea to call a tech to do this,when you find problem you have to melt everything out again
A temporary solution for this, is to use a fan to blow some air to the back of the unit. Looks like -as you already figured- the condenser fan is broken. If your fridge starts cooling with the external fan, you may have keep it working on this way until it is fixed.
If you had previous service in your appliance, perhaps the tech guy forgot to plug the fan connecto to the power.
Try turning it off and defrost it for 48hrs with both doors open. Then turn it back on if it's still not colling the fridge then you need to check to see if the fan in the freezer goes at all. If it cools for a few days then goes warm again you may need a new D'frost element, D'stat or something else cheers
does your fan blow? freezers have a fan that pushes cold air to the fridge side if fan is bad freezer will run extremely cold and fridge won't cool down and since frige won't cool down thermostat in fridge doesn't tell compressor to stop
what to you mean by defrosted fridg. was frost built up in freezer>?
check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing,
check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting,
OR you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
