You would be best off also changing The terminating thermostat and the heater. That will pretty much guarantee a fix.

SOURCE: Jenn-Air freezer leak

Apparently it is the drain behind the freezer panel on the inside and it is blocked. It needs to be unblocked and cleaned. You remove the food and the rear panel on the inside of the freezer. With a hair dryer (carefully) remove all ice build up and then unblock the drain line going to the pan under the refrigerator. The drain line can be cleaned with bi-carb and hot water (not boiling).

SOURCE: Freezer coils freezing, fridge warm

You might want to check and make sure the interior fan is working above the evaporator coils. If the fan isn't working the air won't circulate over the evaporator and it will frost over very quickly, and also cold air won't be pushed into the fridge side.

The fan might turn off when the door is open, hold the door switch shut while you check it.

In the freezer coil is a defrost heater coil, and a defrost thermostat. You have to expose the freezer coil to find them. If your local dealer can't get parts, I get mine from Repairclinic.com.

SOURCE: GE side by side - upper freezer warming once a week then freezing

Had the same problem. Bottom of freezer was about the right temp but the upper part was way too warm. Fridge side was fine. Ice maker stopped making ice - it wasn't broken, but it won't run through its cycle if the temp is too high. Cubes already in storage hopper melted and water refroze as it ran to lower, colder part of fridge. Problem: Fan controller for freezer compartment was faulty. The fan itself was fine. Fix: GE replaced the main circuit board that controls everything on this model, including the freezer compartment fan. Once that was done, temp returned to normal, ice maker is happy again. The board had undergone several revisions from the factory installed one (could tell this by comparing the part number on the old and new boards - they increment it when they revise it.) Bad news: the part/labor were expensive and of course failed after the warranty ran out. Good news: the board is now guaranteed for 5 yrs. (Why wouldn't the factory-installed board ALSO be good for five years instead of just one? It's not like the replacement boards are made better.) Labor is covered only for 90 days though so it won't be free if they have to come back after that.

SOURCE: fridge of my Hotpoint FFA90 fridge-freezer freezes

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Testimonial: "Thanks, I have checked that, but the vent at the bottom of the fridge section is a rigid plastic grill, which doesn't, nor looks like it should move. "

The coils in the freezer are probably freezing up. Do you have ice buildup in the back of the freezer? I would replace the "defrost limiter thermostat". Here is a link to the part you need.
Here is a video to show you how to replace it. This is a different model but the process is the same.

FREEZER NOT FREEZING PROPERLY


There could be a large list of things that cause the freezer to warm up from the temperature it was before. The most likely reason is you probably have a defrost problem. Defrost heater, defrost thermostat and the defrost control are all things that may have failed. If your model is not a frost free let me know. Look inside freezer for a layer of frost building on the rear wall. If your refrigerator is not defrosting it will be a short time before the fresh food compartment begins to warm. To extend the time your refrigerator and freezer can keep food safe defrost by placing a bucket of hot water inside the freezer and close the door. Please place food from freezer and fresh food compartment into another refrigerator or cold storage area. By keeping doors shut as much as possible the refrigerator and freezer will last up to a week this way before defrosting again, Sea Breeze

In the freezer compartment, there is a heater tube that stops the freezer from freezing up. It is probably blown, and you need a replacement heater tube.

Jen-Air Refrigerator does not cool ---freezer works


you have a defrost problem, most common problem component for the jen air refrigerators is the defrost control board pt#61005988. until you change the board you will need to defrost your refrig  manually about once a week. the board is located in the control housing in the refrig compartment and is fairly easy to replace yourself.

To the right of the thermostat, is the timer advancement screw it is small,and it looks like a plastic cam not a screw. you put the flat blade of a screwdriver and rotate click by click till unit shuts off (you will hear louder click and fans and comp will shut off. Now its in defrost. Wait 5mins open freezer remove lower bin look at drain hole where frost buils you shoud see the heater glowing red melting the frost. If no red glow and no heat from panel. You must go further with the diagnosis.. A solved rating will keep this expert advice coming...........
