I think you have a defrost system problem. Could be a defrost timer, or defrost heaters. (IF) you can locate the defrost timer it is possible to rotate the clutch head screw clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one click, wait about 30 minutes and the defrost should take place if the heaters are good. If the refrigerator fails to restart after the time period rotate the screw again SLOWLY until you hear the second click. The compressor will start again into the cooling mode. If you had to turn the screw the second time your defrost timer is bad and you need a new one.

If you have a lot of ice collecting in the freezer the door gasket is probably bad causing the compressor to run overtime which will probably cause the refrigerator portion to cool as well.
You might check the freezer and if very cold set it a bit warmer. I do not know what you have but these may save you some $$$. While you are at it check the freezer, refrigerator, condenser and condenser fans.
Good Luck,

Refrigerator not cool, freezer ok


Either the freezer continues to freeze up (most likely due to low refrigerant, due to a leak), or there is an obstruction between the freezer and the refrigerator (refrigerators get their cooling from the freezer).

Given that it works after you defrost it, I'm going with low gas. Call a professional to see if the leak can be fixed. If the unit is more than 10 years old, just get a new one.

Fridge is not cold and freezer is not frozen


check to make sure the fan that blows cold air from the coils of freezer is working. If its not that could cause the freezer to be cool also.
