This complaint is usually the result of a defrost problem. The first thing to check in this case is the freezer area. Look at the back panel inside the freezer. If you notice frost covering the back panel, you have defrost problem.If the coils in the freezer section get clogged with frost, it will block the evaporator fan motor from blowing the cold air. Kindly check the defrost timer, thermostat and heater.You can locate the defrost timer, but it can be tricky, since they are often hidden behind the back bottom corners of the fridge. In the last few years the timers have been located in the ceiling of the fresh food section, and some behind the cold control cover. Once you locate the defrost timer, slowly turn the screw-like wheel, in the middle of the defrost timer, with a screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. Now the fridge is in defrost mode. If the defrost heater comes on now, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater does not come on, you can ohm test the defrost heater for continuity or volt test for 120 volts to the heater. If you have no power to the heater, you can also bypass the defrost thermostat to see if the heater will come on; join the two wires together, to bypass the thermostat. If the heater now comes on, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater itself is bad, defrost the fridge with a hair dryer, replace the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. If the defrost timer seems "hot" to the touch or is noisy or ticking, replace it.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using Fixya.
