Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, your described condition indicates that the air from the freezer is not being drawn to the refrigerator area. Since as you posted, the fan works, try to determine if a draft of air could be felt where the fan blows down to the refrigerator section. If yes, then suspect the the freezer's temperature is not cold enough to extend to the refrigerator section. This may be brought about by a faulty thermostat. If no, then it would be likely that for some reason the air passage way is blocked and therefore the air from the freezer is prevented from going to the refrigerator section.

A way to test is to open the refrigerator door. Locate and press on the door switch. Inside light should turn off. Maintaining this position after a minute or so, the fan should kick in. Try to feel if their is a strong air flow, if none, then air path is block (or fan not working).

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information or for any updates on developments.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
If you have already checked the thermostat setting inside the fridge to make sure its not set to the warmest setting, then there really isnt anything anyone here can do without actually looking at the fridge, checking the refrigerant, checking the compressor, the evaporator, etc.
A qualified refrigeration technician can certainly troubleshoot it for ya.

Fridge/Freezer Fridge doesn't work any more. SMEG model is about 10 years old. Light on fridge door still works. Freezer still works (although has not been defrosted for a long time - about 1 year). Fridge stopped working 2 days ago and defrosted itself. No coldness inside fridge compartment. Do not know how to get it working again. How much would it cost to get the problem fixed?

We have the Kitchen Aid ksrp2sf and the first problem we had around 2 weeks ago was the ice maker stopped working. 2 days ago the freezer was now not freezing but the fridge side was still cold and working.

A couple of weeks ago we noticed that the refrigerator side of our Kenmore Model #596.51673100 was not very cold, we turned up the temp and no increase, still kind of warm. Then today we noticed our freezer side is not very cold (enough for a freezer). We've cleaned behind and under the fridge, cleaned out the inside to see if anything was blocking the cold air, changed the temp settings, etc. Nothing changes it. It sounds like it's working but it never gets as cold as it should. What's goi

My 8.5 year old MZD2766GEQ has been working fine now for a couple of weeks, but I'm still not confident that my problems are over. Two weeks ago I experienced my fridge side getting 'not so cold' and made several inquiries to find a resolution. I took the back panels off rear wall from inside the freezer and the radiator looking park was encased in frost/ice. I took a hairdryer and melted everything off, then kept the doors open overnight. The next day I plugged it back in and by dinner time, t

Hello. We moved into a house a year ago that had a sub-zero fridge/freezer. When we go on vacation, the freezer unit sometimes shuts off (from not being used??). To get it working again, we have to turn the freezer up a notch. Consequently, we are now on notch 9 and don't have much room to go! Plus, our stuff is too frozen. But if we try to turn the level down a notch, the freezer shuts off. Or stops working, rather, since the freezer light still functions (and the fridge still fuctions). Anoth

The refrigerator still seems to be working. This problem started around christmas and the repairman replaced the entire circuit board stating that it was the problem.
