Is your refrigerator failing to properly stay cool but the freezer runs super cold?
Check internally for an accumulation of ice, which you can easily defrost by hand with a hairdryer. The issue will likely continue, but the damage to the impacted part(s) will be minimized while you wait to get your refrigerator repair done.
To try and diagnose, figure out first of all if it's the fan - does it run when the door switch is pushed in and the compressor is operational? If not, the fan is the main culprit. If the fan is not to blame, most often it will be the timer instead. Some other possible faulty parts, but not as likely, include the bimetal thermostat and heater.
What would a refrigerator repair like this cost? Of course, the specific parts to blame will have a big impact on the overall bill. A bimetal thermostat is just a few bucks but a heater can get a little more expensive. A door switch is pretty cheap, but a problematic compressor can be pricey as well. Even so, the cost of these refrigerator parts plus repair labor is not a significantly greater cost than a simple diagnostics appointment.
