If the entire cooling off the fridge is down then it is important to get this checked for the performance of the compressor and gas pressure.
If the pumping of the compressor is down ,thenit is possible that the cooling can drop. Just shut off fridge for about few hours and restart. If the cooling does not return then the compressor is faulty.
The same goes for thelower gas presssure.
If the cooling of the freezer is intact then the fault can be the failure of the fan, blocking of vent which can be rerlated to the thermostat or auto defrost timer.

Freezer working but Fridge not cooling... Tried adjusting temp to max cool and nothing. Unblocked vents, still nothing... Pulled off back panel cover to vacuum and brush... still nothing... help??? In case...


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

Refrigerator is not getting cold


Unplug it and let the freezer thaw for a day - there is likely ice buildup between the freezer and refrigertor side - which is not letting cold air get to the refrigerator side. Remove all food from the freezer and the refrigerator, and let the freezer totally defrost (allow 24 hours with the doors open) then plug it in and you should see a noticable difference. If that does not work, the fan could be bad. There are two fans, one in the back of the fridge down low on the outside, and one in the freezer behind a back panel on the inside down about half way. Try the defrosting first which should be the solution, and the easiest fix.

sounds like the circulation fans are jammed/seized or faulty -try a full defrost and see what happens after that.
