It started having the refrigerator not cooling enough a couple of weeks ago. So, I just did diagnostic test 65 and it showed "02(open)", not "01(pass)".
Please help me fix the issue.

I found the drawer is working fine although test 65 shows "02". But the big issue is main refrigerator's temperature is not cool enough. Which service test should I do to find out what part causes the problem?

Both fresh food and freezer sections not cold enough or just the fresh food section.

Just fresh food section is not cool enough. The freezer looks ok.

Check the fan motor and make sure it's working. Check for any frost build up on the evaporator. This is fast becoming a common issue with this model.

Yes, I just turned off refrigeration and on again with the control panel and it seems working. I can hear the fan turning sound.
Thank you,
