I just aquired this fridge from my neighbors.I have done all the electronic service tests and they all seem to check ok.The problem is the freezer goes to -25 by my thermometer and refrigerator is 40.I turned icemaker off as no water is plumbed to it.I am at a loss.

Hi,

Do you hear the evaporator fan motor running inside the refrigerator section?

Here's the evaporator fan motor for the refrigerator section for your model:
W10633627 Motor-Evap

Yes I can hear the fan in the refrigerator section but it acts weird.Sometimes it is forceful and other times seems slow.
