Question about AEG Freezers
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.
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it'll be the control.

The service manual for this unit is not available. From your description the problem is either the fan or the defrost system.
To test if fan has iced up you simply perform a complete defrost. If the fan restarts working, then it was blocked by ice. The damper fan motor rarely fails. For this reason you usually test other parts before going for the fan. The fan motor can be tested by energizing it directly (jumping its contacts), or by reading Ohms. A faulty temperature control can cause the fan not starting.
The problem is more commonly the defrost system. This part comprises the evaporator and it is located behing the freezer firewall. The function of the defrost system is preventing coils from freezing. When defrost system is defective you get no cooling and the compressor is usually quite busy most of the time.
In defrost system locate and replace the defrost thermostat. This is the part that most commonly fails. The thermostat can be tested reading Ohms at its terminals.
