Is there any excess frost or ice on the rear wall of the freezer inside?

no visible icing anywhere: have tried one day of thawing in case ducts blocked but no positive benefit. believe machine dates dates from 2001
Expert:  Michael replied 8 months ago.

Thanks for that information.

On this one, please check to see if the air vent(servo controlled) is opening and closing or if it seems almost closed all the time no matter where you set the fridge temp.

Usually this is the cause for your problem considering the defrost system and the cooling in the freezer is fine.

More than likley you will need to replace that vent and its door motor, it all comes as a one piece unit that plugs in, pretty easy to replace as well;-)

The best place to get that air gate as I call it is: http://www.4lg.co.uk/

Once you have the part, and if you have rated my service kindly, you will be able to re connect with me for 30 days so we can get this problem solved quickly.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

how to access the old one? - cleaning may solve problem. behind which panel?
Expert:  Michael replied 8 months ago.

Hi, the old one has a plastic cover that basically pops off from inside the fridge section then you can remove the old one;-)

I would really wait til you have the new one so you can see wherre the plastic clips are exactly so you dont break any of them lol.

Have dismantled the ducting housing (no clips, only tape) and found the very simple expansion bulb-controlled-damper which was apparently not opening fully. it is marked part no J771-00017C and dated 01-11.02. there is an adjusting screw on the mechanical closing mechanism, will attempt to adjust.
Expert:  Michael replied 8 months ago.

Hi yes thats it. you may be able to adjust it bit usually that is set correctly at the factory and no further adjustments are required.

So if its not working it needs to be replaced, unless for now at least if you can open it a bit more your food wont spoil;-)
