Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Samsung Cooltech SL-L551DP fridge Freezer. The freezer seems to be working OK and holding the set temperature. The Fridge Temperature is displayed at 9 and doesn't change. The door open music plays every 2 minutes approximatley. Fridge temperature inside is currently about 13C. Ambient is 22C. So it would seem that the fridge is not cooling although the fridge is making normal operating sounds

The answer to these questions lies in the way the\015\012freezer/fridge combo works. The freezer is where the cooling coils are located.\015\012Then air is moved over the coils and circulated through the fridge side by a\015\012small blower or fan. The problem arises when the air is not circulated for some\015\012reason.
\015\012
\015\012The reasons the air is not moving is usually two reasons
\015\012\015\012

    \015\012
  1. The fan or blower has failed.\015\012
  2. \015\012
  3. The coil is covered over with\015\012 ice and blocks the air flow.
\015\012\015\012


\015\012The first reason is pretty simple to fix, you simply replace the air circulator\015\012and things are good again.
\015\012The second reason can be more difficult.
\015\0121. The timing device that runs the defrost cycle of the refrigerator is\015\012defective.
\015\0122. The heater coil that melts the water is shorted or not working
\015\012
\015\012Usually the first thing to check is the heater coil. If there is resistance\015\012through the coil then most likely it is still good.
\015\012The timing device can be an advanced defrost control board or a mechanical\015\012timing device.
\015\012If the heater coil checks out to be good then the problem should be the timer.
\015\012
\015\012For most situations, unplugging the refrigerator and allowing it to defrost on\015\012it's own will get you going temporarily, till parts can be shipped to you. That\015\012will melt the ice and give you a few days or a couple of weeks till it ices up\015\012to the point where it will not work again.
\015\012
\015\012So you can see here, the problem can usually be traced to one of three things.
\015\012\015\012

    \015\012
  1. The fan or blower
  2. \015\012
  3. The timer device
  4. \015\012
  5. The electric heater coil
\015\012\015\012By methodically checking these parts you can isolate\015\012your problem and fix it.
\015\012
\015\012Take care.

Our Magic Chef fridge model # MCBR1000W does not seem to be keeping the fridge part cool enough, but still keeps the items in the freezer section frozen. The compressor is working, so not sure why this is happening. If the freezer compartment was overly filled, could this be an issue? Does the refridgerator portion get it's cooling from the vents in the front of the freezer section? And if it does, if the freezer door was not closed tightly would this affect the temperature in the fridge com
