Re: Refrigator is not Cooling anything
Michael, couple of things to check. Is the compressor running? If not remove the back panel and check the overload and relay. It should be a white box on the side of the compressor. Unplug the cord and remove it. Shake it, does it rattle? If so, there's your problem. If that's not the case look for a frost up on the back of the freezer on the panel. If it is all frosted up, you have a defrost issue. Catriver...post back.

When the compressor is running, if the fan by the compressor and the fan inside the freezer are both running, and there is no frost on the back wall of the freezer (if there was frost would indicate a defrost issue) then check the air dampener. It is located at the very top left back side of the fresh food section. If it is not opening up, no air will flow from the freezer compartment (where all the cooling takes place) into the refrigerator section.
check for frost build up on rear panel of freezer section. if so your unit is not going through defrost cycle. if you get frost build up on the evaporator then your cold air flow into fresh food side has been restricted
