I discovered the fan is not ruuning to circulate the air, when i tested the fan directly to power it was running. so the freezer works but the upper fridge chamber doesnot and sfter some time the high temperature light comes back p'se advise on which parts i can replace .
I had a similar problem with a top freezer and it was discovered that the fan had actually slipped down on motor shaft and was stuck against the freezer wall. Check to see if there is enough clearance for the fan to actually spin.

Start by checking the circulation fan located in the back of the freezer. You may also want to check to see if the vents in the freezer are clear of debris and ice build up. If the fan is not running, remove the fan motor and test it by applying power directly. If the motor runs with power applied directly then you may need a thermostat.
Check to see if the fan is blocked or not functioning. The air is sent to the fridge from the freezer usually with a small fan and if the opening is blocked that will happen. The fan could also be bad or it is not getting any power.
Milk can sometimes curdle in a working fridge. But it does sound like your defrost system may be malfunctioning. Can you empty your freezer and inspect the defrost system behind the air circulator fan?
I know that defrost elements sometimes go bad and the controllers can pop too. You should check your operators manual and see how to put the fridge into manual defrost. *(it usually involves turning the fridge light on and off by hand. See if the freezer drains during manual defrost. If you have lots of food that dries out in a frost free unit the moisture contains a lot of contaminants that can plug the defrost drain. Which leads to a blocked air passage between the freezer and fridge sides.
You might want to get a small backup fridge for a while to run this down.
Or just use up the food in your fridge before running the tests.
The fan that is under the frig is the condensor fan(the fan the cools the condenser coils and the compressor. It does not have a direct effect on the chilled air circulation inside of the frig. The evaporator fan is the unit that circulates the chilled air thru your freezer and frig. I am not sure what make model unit you have, but I have found that this fan motor is 90% of the circulation problems i have seen.
Replace the fan - it's called the evaporator fan. It circulates cold air evenly in the freezer and blows cold air into the refrigerator section. Its failure would cause the symptoms you describe. Good luck with the repair.
hi thanks for the question is the compressor running hot if its not hot and the fan by the compressor is running the problem is that the compressor is not starting check the compressor you might need a new start relay mounted on the compressor thanks the appliance doc
The freezer fan will run at all times with the exception of when the system is in the defrost mode. This is a normal condition. The air circulation fans use very little power and are of low wattage. The fan by the compressor cycles on and off with the compressor.
this fault is very common for this model but not something that you can do if you r not an engineer the part you will require is an evaperator thermistor to any engineer that is unfamiliar with this it is the green one good luck
