I have a Frigidaire side by side refrigerator model

I have a Frigidaire side by side refrigerator model PLHS267ZAB4. The refrigerator runs constantly and the refrigerator side is cool, the freezer section does not freeze. The following is what I have done so far.JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: 2002 is my estimate. condenser runs warm, condenser fan runs, condenser coils have been cleaned, evaporator fan runs, the defrost cycle on the evaporator coils is operational. There is continuity on the heater coil, I've removed the panel and have seen the coils defrost - although it really does not get cold enough to warrant a defrost. The thermostat control appears operational - when you turn it off, the system turns off, then you turn it up - either the fridge control or the freezer control, the compressor and compressor fan turns on. I'm stumpedJA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: yesJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I've given you as much testing and items I have done.

I have a GE side by side refrigerator, late '80's I'm

Hello, I have a GE side by side refrigerator, late '80's I'm guessing.Model TFF 24 DTB. Serial number FZ 225567.Last night, overnight temp readings were: freezer 4degrees low, 15degrees average, 53degrees high. Refrigerator was: 25 low, 33 average, 40 high.This was for a 12 hour time period, no opening or closing. Also noticed (bear with me cuz I'm no rocket scientist) what sounded like a high amp motor draw and then a click like something was tripping out. It would then repeat several times. Sears tech came out and looked at it today and said he wasn't interested because he couldn't get parts. As he's walking down the driveway he says replace the evap fan. Of course when I push the freezer door switch the fan came on so I know it's okay. In the time it has taken me to find this site, the unit seems to have quit completely and the temps are rising. I know the unit is old but since the compressor is still cooling, I'd like to try and fix before dumping the unit. Thanks for your help
