Check the freezer coils for frost.

If the coils are frosted up you have a defrost problem.

Expert:  John replied 7 years ago.
So are the coils free of frost now and is the freezer fan going.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
The fan in the back which i opened yes thats running or is there another fan? Cause its not getting cold its making me nuts!
Expert:  John replied 7 years ago.
In the freezer theres one fan motor and in the back by the compressor theres one as well.You will have to look at the freezer coils and see if any of the coils are cold or just some of the coils.If its just cold on some of the coils you have a system problem.A leak or a failed compressor.
