Refrigerator cooling emergency

04 July 2013 - 10:28 PM

Ok so I bought a used refrigerator off a fellow who works on appliances for a living. He has a business right down the road from me so i figure he knows what he is doing. I turned the refrigerator into a kegerator but to my surprise the refrigerator only gets as cold as 47 deg. The freezer is fine. I have cleaned and wiped petroleum jelly on the magnetic seal which was a tip i found on the internet. I just purchased a new keg of blue moon and I am stuck with a warm refridgerator. AAAargh.

Like I said the freezer gets cold and the fan runs and you can feel cold air coming out of the vent however there does not seem to be much cold air blowing into the refrigerator part. I was thinking maybe its blocked with frost put the whole refrigerator has only been plugged in for 3 days. Any advice? I have been trying to get in touch with the man I bought it from but he is away on vacation right now. Of course! Is it worth repairing if my guy is not willing to help or what do you think?
