My refrigerator is not keeping food cold but my freezer is working fine....all food is still frozen. What could be the problem?

Appliance Technician: applianceguy, Customer Service replied 8 years ago
Can you hear the fan running in the freezer? Do you see frost build up in the freezer back wall ?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Cannot hear the fan running but there is no frost built up in the freezer back wall.
Appliance Technician: applianceguy, Customer Service replied 8 years ago
Open freezer and refrigerator door for a few min, I want to see if we can get the fan motor to come on.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Door has been open for two or three minutes...how long does it need to be open...no fan is operating right now.
Appliance Technician: applianceguy, Customer Service replied 8 years ago
Do you have a volt meter?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
no..I don't.
Appliance Technician: applianceguy, Customer Service replied 8 years ago

Without a meter I would only be guessing and it there would be a couple things I would think it could be. Do you want to get a volt meter and get back with me?

We have no way of getting one and I'm have only one hand. I noticed that it startedt last night that the doors to the refrigerator position were very warm. This was around the portion of metal on the left door that acts like a air barrier.
Appliance Technician: applianceguy, Customer Service replied 8 years ago
Open refer doors and push in door switches, do the lights go out?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Yes the lights all remain on as ususual. What I didn't hear was anything coming on afterwards to replenish the air. The settings are at 7 (being the highestt) and and the energy saver switch is off. I was up all night you were talking to my wife but she's gone to work. I put som crushed ice in around 3:00 a.m. in a zip loc bag and it is starting to soften
Appliance Technician: applianceguy, Customer Service replied 8 years ago
The lights should go out when you push in the door switches.

I just opened them back up and put my arm on the small plastic "toogles and each door lite went out. S that is working correctly
Appliance Technician: applianceguy, Customer Service replied 8 years ago
The only thing I can recommend at this time is to replace the evap fan motor, we have had some problems with them. The part # XXXXX XXXXX and is located in the freezer behind the back wall.
