Is the refridgerator in garage, and it it cold out right now? I'm having a similar problem and always do when it gets cold because my refridgerator can't compete with the cold. For my refridgerator, I was able to get a garage kit that hooked up to the controler, and it kept the coils warm enough that it made the problem go away. If you don't have a kit available, you could get an electric blanket I suppose or heating pad, and when it drops below 40 degrees, you can go in and plug it in.

Refrigerator not cooling; freezer fine

I don't know which model refrigerator you have but nearly all refrigerators cool the refrigerator section by passing cold air from the freezer section. Often the air passage will ice up so that the cold air can't get through. A thermostat controls the air flow,
That should be enough information to help you find the problem. You may have to remove some inner covers to find the problem.

Model #RB2155sh. Refrigerator will not cool.

sounds like the evaporator fan motor is wearing out. This problem is very hard to diagnose because the fan still spins, But it does not spind fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and refrigerator. The minimum cost labor and parts is around $300.00. If you try and repair/replace the fan motor yourself, You can find the motor for thaat fan for around$80.00, But this doesn.t count the cost is the other components are worn out,(blade, noise arrestors, mounting bracket). I would let a serviceman make this repair because reaching the electrical connection for the fan is labor intensive.
