My LG frost free refrigerator, fridge section is not cooling all together( however the frezer is functioning properly). I have done some preliminary checks but need additional assistance. I have done the following:

1) vary both controls in the freezer and the fidge comparment.(no change)

2)manually put it in the defrost mode, ie adjusting the defrost timer until I heard a loud click. (I still heard the compressor and the evaporator fan runing(I felt them and they were runing)

Some consolation to the problem is that when ever I un-plug it for about 10-12 hours I get good operation for about 3-4 days.

Sounds like it is *NOT* in the defrost cycle as on most frost free models both the compressor and fans should shut off at that time. Someone may have to check the defrost heaters to see if they are coming on at that time. If not, the timer is not likely in a defrost cycle (regardless if it makes a 'clicking' sound or not).

You can read how a frost free refrigerator (and freezer) defrost system is suppose to work at the following link:

Sounds like what can occur when not defrosting properly.
