Kenmore 5355 Freezer side ok, Fridge not coolling. Found the condenser dirty, water in bottom of the freezer and some ice build up on the water drain. I also ran the control board diagnostic and FC & RC themister came out to be ok, the air diffuser gets power. I see some ice build up in the area of the air diffuserI have cleaned up every thing. I still see my air diffuser going shut after sometime. Currently I have disconnected my air diffuser and have opened it manually to get the fridge side working. Any help on finding out the problem


There is a fan inside the freezer which circulates cold air through the air diffuser and then through the return duct at the bottom of the fridge. This fan may not be working. You should be able to hear it when you open the freezer door. If you cannot hear the fan going with the door open, keep the door open and press the button that switches the internal light off. The fan should run. If no fan running in freezer test for supply to fan. The fan may be faulty or the thermostat which is in line with the fan could be faulty.
