My freezer is working fine but the refrigerator side will not get cold. Have cleaned the coils under the fridge and did not notice any frosting or unusual issues. Fan is running fine and cool air circulating under the fridge.what part needs to be replaced to get the refrigerator to cooling again?

ANSWER Hello Tim. 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. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
