what should i be looking for to try and correct this?
I'll check behind the fridge and clean it up a bit.Originally posted by: AlienCraft
Vacuum the coils on the rear of the unit. If those are caked with grime, you'll need to get some coil cleaner to do it right.
If those aren't clean, they will not transfer heat correctly, and thus will not cool well, or at all.
Also, there may be a spore colony inside that is re-infecting the food. Clean out inside with a bleach based cleaner, then put a thermometer in there.
yeah, i checked that.Originally posted by: Kelvrick

Make sure you check the temperature in the bottom and top.
Refrigerators do all the cooling in the freezer section and then use a fan to blow air through a duct into the refrigerator.
My brother runs an appliance business and often he gets refrigerators that the fan in the freezer has stopped and people can't understand how the freezer is freezing solid but the other part isn't cold enough.
Put your hand over the duct exit in the refrigerator and make sure the fan is blowing.
