Question about Refrigerators
The problem is due to air not flowing from the freezer (where all the cooling coils are located) to the fresh food section. This could be due to a couple things.
First look in the freezer section behind the food and shelves to the back panel, what you want to see is if there is a frost build up. If so then we have a defrost problem, as these units are suppose to turn a heater on every 8 hours or so and remove the frost from the coils, if this does not happen frost will block the air flow through the coils and even stop the fan. If you have frost there, unplug the refrigerator, take everything out of the freezer and take the panel off of the back wall inside the freezer. Unthaw the ice and frost, you will see a heater just below the coils, that will most likely be the culprit.
If you do not see frost the fan has most likely failed, the fan is located just above the coils we described above.
The last thing I will mention and check this first is the condenser coils (these are the coils on the back or under the refrigerator, make sure they are clean and if you have the coils under the refrigerator there will be a fan down there that should be running too.
Let me know if you have questions about any of this.
