Question about Refrigerators
There may be different causes when the freezer is not reaching to the low themperature it should get to.
Check that the doors are closing properly and the gaskets are ok.
A common cause can be related to evaporator coil problems. Check that the fan is working and that the the coil is not iced up.
Leave the fridge off , and with door opened for over 24 hours, until you defrost ice condensed on the evaporator coil.
After this the fridge should cool up properly , at least first few days. Check also: Cleaning the condenser coils
Check that the evaporator fan is working , if it is not you will need to check the voltage coming to the fan , and eventually replace the part. Check here :
Being the fridge quite old it is also possible that you need to take out gas weigh and recharge it, this may resolve problem.
If at this point it still does not cool properly you will need to identify the fault testing parts eventually involved. It'may be a open circuit heater or fuse, or a faulty defrost thermistor on the freezer evaporator or a faulty control board.
Start checking fan and coil and doing a two-days defrost, if this does not work recharge gas.

It is always recommended that the temp. should be between 35-37degrees.
If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. i recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician if you cannot replace it by yourself.
