Question about Fisher and Paykel Active Smart E522B Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Sounds like one of the fans aren't working. The fans only work when the both doors are shut. Shut one door and use a strong magenet on the magenetic sensor ( located on where the door shuts in between the two doors. Shaped like a lump that sticks out). Put your hand to the back wall of the fridge (or to the fan in the freezer) and see if there is air movement. Is there isn't then its the compartment your in's fan.
If they are both working then it could be your freezers de-ice element not working or your fidge my need to be switched off to defrost

SOURCE: fridge not cooling
Check and see if your evaporator fan motor is working in the freezer. Also, if your defrost system is not working and your evaporator coil is frosted up, you will not get any cold air to the refrigerator section. You should see alot of frost on the back wall of the freezer where the evaporator coil is located. If your evaporator fan motor is working and there is no frost build up on the coil, the air diffuser to the refrigerator section may be the problem. Put your hand in front of it when the evaporator fan motor is running and feel if any air is coming thru. There are a number of conditions that can cause your problem. This should get you started!

We will need to see if yours has the defrost timer or the adaptive defrost. Let me know if your model is the JSD2789GES. I have the manual we can work with. ..Sea Breeze

How to check everything
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. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp .
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 In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.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.
You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.
