My refrigerator has stopped cooling properly. The freezer side is working fine. I pulled it away from the wall and cleaned underneath, coils, cleaned the fan blades, etc.yesterday. Fan is working fine. There is good air movement circulating in the freezer side, but no air movement in the refrigerator side. The cooling adjustments haven't been moved since we purchased the refrigerator, and it has always worked just great. I cranked it up to the coldest setting yesterday. Still no air movement. Things are fairly cold in the bottom draw. Can you help me out?
ANSWER Hello John. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
