GE refrigerator not cooling


I have a older model GE refrigerator (TBX25RKB) (conventional top freezer) that I keep in the garage for drinks and overflow freezer space. I noticed a few days ago the beer seemed warm. Checked the freezer and everything was frozen. Turned freezer and refrigerator to coldest settings. Today I put a thermometer in to see temps. Refrigerator was 48 and freezer was 19 degrees. The unit is running and the fan is circulating air. Any ideas on the problem. Could it be low freon? Is it worth fixing?

Usually won't help cranking the controls up.

Freezer is a bit warm as well!
40F and 0F would be better.

With it's age, a leaker is possible.

Wouldn't really know until the acual trouble maker is found and what is required to correct the problem....then an educated decision could be made, repair or replace.

Some common things to check...
