Hi, my name is ***** ***** expert here for almost a decade and thank you for using JustAnswer. I am extremely sorry that nobody has answered your question yet.

I just got your question sent to me since it was unanswered.

Once we finish please rate my service 5 stars so I get credit for my time as we are verified expert consultants and not employees. If you don't give 5 stars I don't get credit for my time.

Do you still need assistance?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Not solved yet, but I have realised the floor of the fridge is at minus 2 degree. Food at top is about right temp, but goes to food at 0 deg at the bottom
Expert:  Christopher Coleman replied 6 months ago.

The buildup would not be behind but under the panel as you describe being very cold. You should remove he panel and check for a clogged drain and insure continuity in the defrost element.

Is the fan running?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
the fan in the fridge is running ( stops when you open the door). Not sure what you mean about build up. When I took the plastic panel off and then an aluminium one to expose the "radiator "(not sure what proper name is ) it was totally ice free. There was a thin covering of soft ice on a pipe running above it. the drain in the fridge is clear. No water in the bottom of freezer so I presume that is clear also.
