GE Refrigerator, freezer warm

For the last two days I have been noticing that though the general area of my frig. works fine, the freezer portion is not cool enough to freeze the food.
I removed the try containig the coil and found it to contain a foul smelling powder deposited on it. I also observed that the frreezer fan does not operate.
Any advice??

if there is a lump of frost on the condenser, or visable on the back wass of the freezer, then you have a restriction in the freon line or a bad /weak compressor. Contact your local GE servicer.

If the fan is not working the symptoms should be reversed. The freezer should be "ok" and the refrig part should be "not cold enough". For this reason I am leaning toward what Koolcat said. It would be impossible to tell you what the powder stuff is without being there to see or smell it. You might try unplugging it for a full day with the doors open to allow any build up of ice to melt and then plug it back in to see what it does. Sometimes this can also cure a blockage in the condenser. While you have it unplugged would be a good time to remove, inspect, and or replace the fan.
