The refrigerator will cool down for a while, then a few days later, will be warm compared to the freezer. Turning the control up on the refrigerator part seems to have no effect.

SOURCE: running but not cooling
Pull the refrig out , unplug , and on the back , remove the 8 " X 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board . On this board , you will see a blue plug ,with 3 larger wires going to it , which you need to unplug .
You will need a short piece of insulated wire , with both ends stripped about 1/4 inch .
Looking at the plug , you will see : wire1 wire2 space wire3 . With the piece of wire , insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other end into wire3 .
Plug the refrig back in . Looking in the freezer section , behind the crisper , after about 1 min , you should see a " red " glow .
If no red glow , this means your defrost heater AND bimetal need to be replaced . Unplug the refrig , remove jumper wire , and plug the blue receptical , back onto the board . Reinstall the panel .
To replace these , remove the food in the freezer , and remove the inside freezer panel ( 4 screws hold this panel on ) , and the heater is below the coils ( 2 screws ) , and the bimetal is clipped on the top of the coils , a 1 " cylinder , with a pink and blue wire going to it .
Part number for the heater WR

you can unplug it and let it defrost on it's own or you can melt out the air ducts,you'll have to shut down the freezer,remove the shelves and remove the inside back wall of the freezer section and melt out all the ice in the right hand corner and any ice on the coil.when melting out the air ducts be careful not to damage any of the plastic or styrofoam on or inside the wall,heat up the area with a hair dryer for a couple of minutes and then move to the coil,after a minute or two go back the the air duct,when you think it's melted out enough turn the freezer back on and with your hand check to make sure the air is blowing into the fridge side,if you can feel air blowing then your all set,if there's any ice left in there the defrost will take care of it.if you have another fridge to put your food in or if the food can't be refrozen i'd just unplug it and let it melt out on it's own over night and you can clean it out while everything is out of it.let me know how you make out and good luck,hope you didn't loose that much food

Check to see if there is frost or ice build up on the back panel in your freezer. If there is you have a defrost problem and the air is not circulating to your refrigerator.
