Replace the fan. If you stop it with your finger, it should start back up on its own. You should not have to give it enough. That's your problem.
Hi Schleven, the fan does run.  It's plastic and if I put my finger on it, it stops and i have to give it a little nudge to get it going again.

This morning the freezer was 18, fridge 48.  It did that yesterday too for a while.
There's also some water frozen on the louvers on the rear freezer panel.

There was a typo in my previous post. I meant to say "Could it be that there's no air control flap and turning it up would make the fridge colder?"

Thanks AJ......
Does the fan run?
We have a 3 year old Whirlpool WRT1L1TZYW01 top freezer fridge.  A couple of weeks ago we had the door open for a couple of hours to clean a spill.  Since then it has been too warm.  Emptied and completely defrosted it.  After 24 hrs back on at 3 out of 5 snowflakes, freezer was 10 and fridge was 50.  Turning it up to 4 and 5 made no change.  Put it in defrost test mode and it cleared the evaporator in 6 minutes.  Tested the bimetal and heater, both good.  Replaced the ADC turned it back on set to 3.   Compressor started right up.  About 6 hours later heard 2 loud cracking sounds.  Next day freezer was 10 degrees and frig 52.  Also saw some water drops on the top inside edge of the freezer door and frozen water drops on front edge of freezer ceiling.

There are 3 foam openings below the evaporator.  The middle one goes down and back (cold air to fridge?).  The 2 on either side go straight into the fridge (warm air returns?).  None are blocked.  I don't see any air control door in the parts breakdown and the fridge only has 1 knob.  There's not much air getting into the fridge but it improves a little when I open the freezer door.  I haven't turned it back to 5 because someone said that closes the flap and makes the fridge warmer.

Could it be that there's no air control flap and turning it up would make the fridge colde ok to turn it up to 5?  Since the freezer is 10 degrees on 3 does that mean the compressor is ok?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

WOW I read that wrong. Sorry mz3 haah :oops: :oops:

Yes, unfortunately it sounds like a sealed system problem.

Well its been exactly 5 years and our GE refrigerator stopped working. The temps are now 68 and 50.

The compressor is vibrating and warm to the touch.  The fan is working.

I checked the resistance of the compressor .010/.003/.012 ohms. Shouldn't 2 of the readings be lower than the third?

I also checked the PTC, no rattle or burnt smell, resistance across the terminals was 1.15 ohms.

Evaporator fan is running but the evaporator is not cold.

Can anyone tell me what might be wrong?  Suspect sealed system failure.
