Question about Fisher and Paykel Active Smart E522B Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
My fridge (E440T but I believe the E522 is similar) has EXACTLY the same symptoms and the reason was a broken fan wire in the freezer compartment (behind the rear panel). The fridge compartment works by drawing air from the freezer and blowing it into the fridge compartment. If the fan in the freezer doesn't work, then your fridge won't get cold (there is another fan in the fridge compartment so it will stay a little cold but not enough).
If you're game, I created a document for others to follow if interested at http://www.accentis.com.au/downloads/misc/How I fixed my Fisher and Paykel Fridge Active Smart Fridge.pdf
Thanks to all postings on this site - it really helped a lot, had me some fun and saved money!

Here is a pic showing the location of the fusible resistors and the visible part of the heater:
Note, there are two fusible resistors in series with the heater, one on each side. In the pic they are connected with yellow wires.
The heater (a metal tube) wraps around the bottom of the heat exchanger and is partially hidden in the pic.
Again a warning, if you're not sure what you are doing don't attempt to do this. 240 volts in a difficult environment like this is *dangerous*. Everything must be secure and properly waterproofed.
