Removed control section and found ice build up in transfer tunnel from the freezer section to the fridge section. freezer fan was running, compressor running - no air coming into fridge section. Possible and cheapest problem - no defrost cycle taken place. Replaced defrost heater/t-stat in freezer and defrost controller in fridge. Seams to work (for now).
