usually when the bottomof the freezer is cold and the top isn't it's the evap fan motor isn't working and all the cold air sits at the bottom.when you open the freezer door you should hear the fan running inside the freezer,also tried to look up your model but it didn't come up.open the fridge door,look up on the right and hear the cieling and you'll see a tag with the model and serial numbers,i just need the model number and i can help you better
the freezer feeds cold air to the fridge side,there's an evaperator fan that just blows the cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator side and then it returns to the freezer through the air ducts.check this,when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing in there?if you don't you have a bad evap fan motor,if you hear it,remove the second draw from the bottom in the freezer side and touch the back wall,if there's ice or like snow on the back wall you have a defrost problem.if this is it send me the model number and i can look up the parts in your machine and i can help you,also look to see if there's droplets and ice on the food and shelves in the freezer,somebody could have left the door open and the air ducts frooze up and the air can't blow from one side to the other,let me know what you find and i'll help you out
check the fan from the freezer side if its not running /possible frozen or jammed will cause the refridge side to be warm the fan blows the freezer air into the fridge side to cool their is also a damper or duct control which can build up if no blockage or debris test fan for power if power than test fan it self if not running than repair or replace as necessary
sounds like the circulating fan is wearing out. This fan supplies circulation for the freezer as well as the refrigerator when the motor for this fan starts to wear out the circulation supplied is reduced to a point that the freezer will work but not the refrigerator because the fan does nnot run fast enough to circulate the air thru the refrigerator. The minimum cost to repair/replace this fan assemble is around $300.00
a blocked condenser can cause a warm up situation,and after youve done this you have to wait 24 hours before making desision on out come.but other possiables are condenser fan motor slow,its fan blade dirty.defrost problem,frost on back frezer panel can be a sign of issue.evap fan moving air slow[inside fan]run time,is it running enough[thermostat controls that]if all those ok could be restriction in sealed system,that where the freon curcit.if moisture,or particles they can get caught in the cap tube[small tube to create persure so then freon expans to a gas]that should give you a few ideas.God bless ,tom
3 things to check. If you didn't adjust the damer from the freezer to the refrigerator, like closed it off. Is the freezer fan running? The fan blows air from the freezer to the refrigerator section. Some fans shut off when the door is open so you may have to push in the door switch to check this out. Look for ice on the back wall, of the freezer section, If present then the defrost cycle is not working. The evap. coil is icing up and there is no air blowing into the refrigerator. Set the thermostat back to the normal setting it just causes a longer run time on the freezer section.
First, please re-check to see if both fans are running, the condenser fan by the compressor and the evap fan in the freezer. Next, empty the freezer and remove the evap cover. look at the evap coils. Are they completly frosted up -- if so, you have a defrost problem - this will cause the condition you describe- IF they are not frosted, are only a few of the passes of coil frosted and some just wet with no frost? Then that means you need some freon. The fact that you have some cooling means that the compressor is probabaly OK.
Sounds like there's an airflow problem to the top section. Things that cause no cold air to the top fridge section are... frozen up coils completely blocking most of air flow (defrost cycle not working), evap fan not working to blow air up to fridge, air control dampers in fridge closed or not working properly, or frozen air ducts supply/return.
Pull the whole drawer out the bottom and take the rear inside back off to expose the coils. If they are frozen solid the defrost t-stat or defrost timer could be bad (heat element not usually bad). If there is a nice white frost all over evenly then that's OK. Check that the fan is running when the compressor is running to blow the air up and that there are no blocked air ducts, etc. If all that is good, check if you can feel good air flow from the upper vents with the lower door closed (that shows there is no blockage and the fan is running).
