In most older reefers, the fan in the back of the freezer does the entire job. It blows cold air through a duct that leads to the ******. If you have no cold air in the ******, but your freezer is still cold...but barely, your fan is shot.

Sounds like the defrost circuit of your fridge has failed. If you remove the back panel of the freezer compartment, you will see the evap coil encased with ice. Normally the defrost circuit will turn off the compressor and turn on a heater to warm the coil to about 45 degrees to melt any frost build up. After about 40 minutes the compressor will kick back in to keep your fridge cool again.

The typical failures are that the defrost heater burns out. If you have an older fridge, the defrost timer fails to advance, causing the fridge to stay in cooling or defrost mode.

Have you checked the air passage ways from the freezer to the main box. They may be blocked with ice or they could be blocked with items covering them up. Are your cold controls set so that freezer air is directed into the box? It is possible that they maybe set to keep all the cold air in the freezer if that is set to coldest for the freezer, When the controls are adjusted it can take up to 24 hours to really see a difference. There is also a vane type of control operated by a small motor to direct the air from the freezer to the box on some models that may have failed.

Make sure that the condenser is clean and that the fan turns freely. Look for plastic bags block the air from the condenser.

Depending upon design, there should be a removable panel or grille that gives access to the pan. You may discover the pan contains a malodorous mess.

My brother Vernon gave you an answer to your last query, and pretty much the same applies. It may be that your door gaskets are not sealing or that the door is being opened to much and letting moist air in, or finally that the insulation is breaking down.
