Ok sounds good, I always advise folks to use a liquid thermometer or digital thermometer. The dial type is not completely acute in real time.

Update... overall seems that everything improved, but still the fridge is a bit warmer then the setting and the ice production slow... can it be that the fan is slower than what should be? Can it be just slower and not completely dead? Is it realistic or should it be turning or dead?
Thanks.

The fan should be turning fairly fast. If its turning slow, then it's likely bad.

What's the temperature in the refrigerator right now?

What's the temperature in the freezer right now?

now the temperature seems ok in both and even the ice seems producing at reasonable rate... nice that is working, but as always the intermittent faults are the most annoying and difficult to find...
I think the fan will be the first thing I will try if the fridge fails again...

Ok, yes intermittent problems are the hardest to nail down.
