is the fan in the freezer running? What about the compressor in the back is it running? Is it running hot or warm?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The fan in the freezer is working. Freezer is ok. However the technician said he could not hear the fan in the refrigerator side running. He didn’t know if it was very quiet or maybe shuts down when you open the door.
Why would the temperature on the outside panel be reading 34 degrees but when I put a thermometer inside it is reading 55

it​ could mean a bad thermistor (which tells the unit to run in order to cool) if the thermistor thinks its 35 it will stop cooling as it should

What is a thermistor ?
Is that an expensive part?
This refrigerator is not old.

no ​not expensive at all typically about 15 dollars and easy to replace its in the fridge side
