Question about Refrigerators
This could be due to few things, so let's start with the easy ones;
Check fridge temp. control.
Check fan in freezer (should come on if door is kept open a couple of minutes.) if fan does't come on,
or if weak (should come on strong), unplugg the unit and take back cover off, (should be 4 screws), test fan applying 110v AC to it, if defective, replace. If fan OK, check for iced up evaporator, if so, defrost using a heat gun or hair dryer, make sure air duct to fridge is clear of ice..
Adjust temp. settings according to manufacturer suggestion (wait 24 hrs. before adjustments)

you should be able to pull straight up on the handle (with force) and it will come loose from the retaining screw. usually its just the retaining clip that comes loose from the door but sometimes you will have to replace the entire handle to repair the unit. if your not having any luck getting it off message me with a complete model number for your refrigerator and i will see if i can get you a little more detailed information. thx peyton

Make sure the fan is working ,its located behind the freezers back wall.(5 to 7 screws) If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation .Also if you can move everything out unplug it w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes.Turn it to 4 or 5. Good luck.Let me know.

SOURCE: refrigerater is not cooling
The refrigerator gets air from the freezer. Look in the freezer for frost. If you have frost in the back or bottom the you have a defrost problem. Could be a timer or heater that is bad. If no frost do you hear a fan? You should have a evaporator fan running. Maybe thats out and it not circulating air for the refrigerator. You can check this out.
Hope it helps

check the damper door located between the freezer and refrige compartments to make sure it opens and closes,sometimes they get an ice build up there and this causes them to stick shut,remove ice with hair dryer or remove and deice and replace this will solve your trouble

When a unit freezes in the lower drawers this is usually due to a thermistor which is not functioning properly. If you can provide your model number I can try to locate your schematic to your unit showing the thermistor that you would replace to alleviate this issue. I will await your reply as to the complete model number of your unit.
p.s if you had ice up the top of the unit as well then you would look at the damper door otherwise known as the diffuser door in some units or the control for the door as the problem area in your unit.
