Solo, firt make sure you do not have a build up of frost on the freezer inside panel. This would indicate a defrost problem. Your post states that the cooling problem is intermitant which leads me to believe that the automatic damper is at fault. It could have a build up of ice on it which is causing it to bind, or it could just be going bad. Your model does have the manual defrost timer which could be sticking at times, that is why I suggest checking the back freezer panel for frost buildup. back.

SOURCE: Refrigerator does not get cold

ou need to check to make sure the evaporator fan is working. If it is remove the freezer back to look at the evaporator to make sure it is not frozen over. If it is you have a defrost problem. when the coils on the evaporator get all frosted over air can not move over the coils for the fan to circulate the air through out the compartments so the fresh food section will get warmer while the freezer will be cold. you will need to defrost the evaporator to be able to check the treminator and the heater. to do that you will need to turn the timer thats is located in the fresh foo section usually in back of the thermostat. there may be a removable plug to expose the dial to turn it manually. use a flat blade screw drier to do that. it will only turn one way. as soon as you hear a click stop. the compressor and evaporator fan should stop running. now you can check to see if the heater will come on. if not you will need a volt meter to check the terninator heater and to make sure the defrost timer is all good. you should have 120v at the heater. if you do ohm out the heater to make sure it is ok. most times if it is a defrost problem check the terminator first thats the round disk with 2 wires on it. if it is not closed the heater will not come on.check it out and you should find if there is a problem with the defrost cycle. if you turn the timer untill you hear it click again and the fan and compressor should be running. when you remove the freezer cover and you find the coils are only frosted at the top or just a verry little, you may have a leak in the sealed system and that would be why there os por cooling. you would need to call for service if that is the case. hope this help you some

Defrost the fridge, take everything out of freezer and turn off for at least a day, check the drain is clear after defrosted and try again, if it happens again you may need a new defrost heater of timer.

Ok, I realize I'm a little late on chiming in here, is this unit located in a slideout, and/or the top outside vent is in the wall not a roof located vent?

If so then the issue is that there are fans that are necessary to circulate air thru the hot coils. And there is probably a malfuntioning thermostat to turn these fans on/off. I had this issue with same fridge in a Gulfstream motorhome, and the temporary fix was to pull the faston connectors off the thermostat and tied them together with a 12V fuse, and taped it up with electrical tape to keep it from shorting on fridge chassis and parts. Replace the thermostat at your conveniance, as these fans are now running whenever fridge is on, and will run your batteries down if not plugged into shore power.

Hi, With the information you supplied i'm going to assume there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with your refridgerator, 1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the back of the should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dryer and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater...using a multi meter test the heater for condinuity...if the heater is bad replace it, If the heater is good replace the defrost thermostat..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours?..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns. I have included links with pictures of what the parts you need to check are: defrost stat heaters evap fan. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. If you decide to get a repair guy in should not cost you any more then $120 - $200 depending on make/model/problem Good luck & thanks for using fixya!

How do I get the flex zone drawer down to 29 degrees?

Your question is a bit ambiguous. If you are using a thermometer be sure it is correct. If you are talking setting the temperature it is explained on page 25 of the manual it gives these instructions:
• Press the Temp button repeatedly until your desired mode is lit.
• Each time you press the Temp button, you change the mode in this order: Meat/ Fish mode (29°F(-1°C)), Cold Drinks mode (33°F(1°C)), Deli/Snack mode (37°F(3°C)), Wine/Party Dishes mode (42°F(5°C)). Initially, the Cold Drinks mode is selected. The refrigerator will adjust the temperature in the Flex Zone automatically to the temperature you selected.
• The Flex Zone Temp. Display may change depending on the number of items inside, where they are located, the ambient temperature, and how often the door is openend.

I hope that helps.
