There is a drip coming into the refrigerator from the ceiling , but the freezer is not frosted

I suggest that you remove the bottom layer of the freezer - you'll see its just a piece of plastic to allow cold air to circulate underneath. There is a metal tray in the back of the freezer there that has a drain in it - I'll bet its frozen solid and the condensation from the defrost cycles are dripping down into the fridge part.

Freezer works fine, refrigerator does not chill

Refrigerators draw air from the freezer to cool them. There are several possibilities. First check to see if you need to defrost the freezer, this can cause a blockage stopping the air to the refrigerator also make sure that there is nothing blocking the air flow in the refrigerator.
You can set the freezer colder and turn up the refrigerator setting dial.
If these don't work it could be the fan that is supposed to circulate the air to the refrigerator is not working. The door switch for the light often turns the fan off while the refrigerator door is open.
If the items in the freezer aren't frozen hard then you most likely need you system recharged or there may be something wrong with the compressor.

Refridgerater doesnt get cold enough.

Things to check.......Is the evaporator (freezer) fan motor running? If not you could have a bad motor
Do you see a build up of frost on the interior rear wall of the freezer? Problem in the defrost system. This includes the heater, terminator or control.

In addition a bad fresh food damper control or blocked return air duct could be restricting airflow into the fresh food compartment.

Ideal temps should be 0 to 10 above in the freezer and 36 to 42 in the fresh food compartment. This can be measured by submerging a thermometer in a cup of vegetable oil that has been in the freezer for 24 hours. The same can be done in the fresh food compartment where a cup of water will do the trick. Higher freezer temps could indicate a more serious problem in the sealed system.

The outside metal around the freezer area is very warm.

We were informed that because of a lot of power outages and surges that the freezer was in constant defrost mode. Since the freezer had been in constant defrost for at least 5 days, we were told that the condenser would probably short out. Even though the fridge was 7 years new. We decided it would be cheaper in the long run to get a newer more energy efficient one, because we didn't know what other damage had been done and if fixing everything would just be too expensive and it could quit before everything was fixed.

Continuing fridge problems

Your freezer is probably not sealing prolly. make sure the door is perfectly lined with the box. You might want to change the defrost timer from the 10hr you have to a 6 hr timer. In high humidity areas too much frost tends to accumulate causing the vents, and the drain line to be clogged. That might be why you have the puddle of water. The ice that is defrosted every 10 hrs runs down that drain line to a pan on top of the compressor, if that line freezes up, all subsequent water from defrost ends up in the refrigerator or freezes in the freezer.
