Customer Question

I am trying to troubleshoot my fridge. The freezer seems to work fine but the fridge is warm

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

Kenmore Model 253. 52349303 I would say 10 years

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Maybe...pending on the solution might be.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that I am aware of. It was working fine, then quick sometime last night or today. Just trying to fix it rather than purchase a new one if it makes sense to do so

Fridge is warm, freezer cold. Looking for solution to fix the problem.
Appliance Technician: ApplianceMAN, Home Appliance Technician replied 11 months ago
Ok, alright, so you have a possiblity of two issues, a defrost issue, or a damper issue!A defrost issue would cause the evaporator coil to freeze solid which would cause little air flow in refrigerator area......Another issue would be a damper door for air flow control, if it's stuck or closed it will not allow air across. These are 2 of your basic issues
