is there any cooling inside eather part at all
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
It seems like the freezer may be cooling a little. Also the temp comtrol on the fridge side usually has lights on showing the cool level you set, this is also not lighting up.

on the model number you sent does it have a 106. or 363. in front
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

do you see any frost on the inside the freezer on the back wall and is the fan blowing inside
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Yes there is frost on the back wall inside the freezer, how do i tell if the fan is running? It seems to be moving cold air on the botton(floor) of the freezer.
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 7 years ago.
open the freezer door and push in on the light switch and the fan should start blowing inside the freezer
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
No fan blowing.
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 7 years ago.
theres your problem ,,, the fan cant blow the cool air from the freezer to the fridge and causing a build up of frost ,, you will need to defrost the freezer, remove the inside back panel and swap out the fan motor ,, the part number is(NNN) NNN-NNNNand it cost $56.19 plus you can get it at a local appliance parts dealer or online at www3.sears.com ,,, thanks Larry
