Compressor / sealed system problem, or maybe a wiring problem. Hard to say.

SOURCE: refrig not cooling

Either the fan that blows cold air from the freezer compartment to the fresh food compartment is burned out or the door/flap that seperates the compartments is stuck or the linkage connecting it to the fresh food temperature dial is stuck or broken.

The evaporator coils are in the freezer compartment and air is blown from the freezer compartment to cool the fresh food compartment. For some reason, air is not moving to fresh food compartment.

If the fan is running, it could be something as simple as Ice blocking to door between the freezer and fresh food compartment. I know modern refrigerators are self-defrosting, but that's only the evaporator coils, which are defrosted by a timer and a heater.

Ice can form on passageways inside the refrigerator, like the exit of the ice maker and in this case, on the door and 'tunnel' between the freezer and fresh food compartment. It's free, and doesn't take a lot of time, so try completely defrosting the unit before doing anything else.

BE SURE to keep the doors open, as odors can form as particles of food are allowed to defrost that may have been frozen in an ice pack for months or even years. Clean the interior of the refrigerator while you have everything out and reset the controls to normal settings.

If this doesn't help, there may be a mechanical problem with the air transfer control flap/door that will need to be fixed.

Hope this helps.

Is RS261MDWP the correct model number? If you left the freezer door open there is an excess amount of frost covering the evaporators because moisture was drawn inside and has frozen on the evaporator and is too much for a normal defrost to get all of the ice off and drain into the pan below the refrigerator. It may have also frozen over the condensate drain and not allowing the water to drain. You may need to clean the drain hole and defrost the refrigerator manually and insure the evaporators are clear of backed up water. If you don't there is a chance the refrigerator will continue like this until you do. Let me know what the status is so I can help.....Sea Breeze
Does your model have two evaporators?

Hi Sturkle;
Does this happen say- every 6-8hrs? If so you may find the defrost element has a short, or defrost timer is faulty. Defrost element is located in the freezer compartment, Time located an back of fridge.. Use a qualified person when playing with electrics...Cheers
