Hi all... First of all, I thank you in advance for your time and patience. I haven't done any diagnostics yet, thought I'd come here first. The title says my problem pretty well, but I'll say it again with more words. :) The fridge has slowly (it seems) been heading this way, but now the thermostat is turned all the way clockwise, and it is barely at refrigeration temps. Where to start? Thanks

Hi,

When you open the freezer door do you hear the evaporator(freezer) fan running? Because on this model the cold air from the freezer blows into the refrigerator section to cool it, and if that fan is not blowing it gets warm in the refrigerator.

What I do to verify that is use my multimeter, to volt test the 2 leads that connect to the fan motor and make sure I get a steady 120 volts there.

Here's the evaporator fan motor for your model::
