If the condensor fan is running and the condensor is clean, you may have a sealed system problem. It's an expensive repair.

The condenser fan is the one the blows air over the evap coil yes?
Expert:  Dave replied 7 years ago.
No, the condensor fan is near the compressor.

The one at the bottom rear of the fridge, blowing over the coils under the fridge? that one is running too.
Expert:  Dave replied 7 years ago.
Is the condensor hot? If not it's probably time for a new fridge.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
No the condenser coils are room temp. :-(
