    I have a Uline Combo 29 icemaker/refrigerator. It will make and keep 10 pounds of ice frozen but cannot get the beer very cold. I replaced the door seal thinking that might help but it did not make much difference. The customer service folks are just as baffled as I.

    The refrigerator cooling comes from the same as the icemaker gets its cooling. They seem to believe the refrigerant side is OK since it makes ice so well. The coil is very clean.

    Their only suggestion is that the fan may not be working well enough. Ideas???

    I don't know your model fridge but if there is a separate temp setting for freezer and fridge then you would have a fan blowing air from the feeezer compartment into fridge area. The fridge Temp sensor turns on and off the fan

    Has it worked well in the past? I'm thinking this is just a poor design or a fan problem.

    I don’t know anything about your specific fridge but generally if the freezer is working (making ice) but the fridge isn’t then the fan that pushes the air to the fridge side isn’t functioning and only getting passive cooling from freezer side.
