My refrigerator its not cooling on the bottom, but the freezer is fine.
Answer Hello. Check the evaporator fan and make sure it is running. If it is not running, replace the fan motor. Hope this helps.

The freezer is cold,,the lower part is running warm (approx 40*). Had some build-up of frost on the back wall of the freezer. What is the mostly likely problem and what do I need to make the repairs? My fridge is 14 years old.
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
the tube that leads condensed water to the container at the bottom of the fridge seems to be plugged up. The container is dry, but the water collects inside at the bottom of the fridge
Answer Hello Sieg,
You will need to access the end of the tube that is frozen up and thaw it out with a hair dryer. Once clear you should use a piece of weedeater line to chase the tube to ensure no debris is present in there. If this is a recurring issue you can use a piece of solid copper wire to make a "shepherds hook" to hang from the defrost heater and allow it to hang near the drain opening. Do not allow it to touch anything since it will get as hot as the defrost heater and will melt any plastic it contacts.
