My freezer is doing fine but my lower part isnt cooling at all (temp 58) Checked condenser fan motor its turning. Then I check evaporator fan motor its blowing as well. Not sure what else unless bad thermostat. Any help would be appreciated.

ANSWER Hello Danny. Check for frost on the back wall. If there is some, 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
