Re: refrigator oart is not working
Is your refrigerator a frost free model? If so do you have any frost in the freezer compartment such as on the back wall? It is possible that you have a defrost cycle problem, or your condenser coil where heat is transfered to the outside air is restricted, or your refrigerator could have a leak of refrigerant and with the

Sounds like a temperature control module issue. If you have a little time, patience and technical knowhow it can be a simple fix. Google your make and model number with the term "+temperature control module" and it should help get you there.
the defrost heater under the evaporator in the freezer or if in the refrige section which is a heater grid in front of the evaporator is bad,or the defrost thermostats in either case near the evaps could be bad,or the adaptive defrost controls in the refrige area could be bad too
check the damper door between the refrige and freezer compartments,its behind a plastic cover,if its iced up in the fully open condition it will allow too much cold air into the refrige,if this is the case defrost it with a hair dryer and recheck operation,otherwise the temp control in the refrige is bad
Check your condenser coil (should be below the refrig.). If dirty, you can clean it with a condenser brush from Home Depot or Lowe's. Turn the appliance off while cleaning. Be careful not to damage the refrigerant tubing (copper). If this doesn't solve the problem, then there may be an issue with the defrost thermostat, defrost heater(s) or the main temperature control assembly.
At the refrig controls , the freezer control , controls how much air goes into the refrigerator section . Open the refrig door , and up at the top left , put your hand over the damper (air vent) . Turn the freezer control from high to low , and feel the difference in the air flow . If you turn your freezer control to a lower setting , less cold air will enter the refrig . Think of it as : the freezer control adjusts the temperature , and the refrig control , tells how long to run the compressor . In actuality , this is how it works . However , with the dial (refrigerator thermostat) in the off position and refrig still running , this indicates a bad thermostat . Pt # 2198202 .
