Question about Refrigerators
Freezer is not cold enough to freeze, ice is not working, but water is working, I can feel ice in machine, but most of my food is not frozen or semi frozen. Refrigerator part feels warmer also, not as cold as usual. Motor does run, feel cool air coming out of vents, but not enough to keep cold.
What is the model number?
The ice maker will only run if the freezer is at the correct temperature.
Do you see any ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer or behind it?

I cleaned condenser coils with vacum, emptied the defrost tray and vacumed all the dust from the unit, unplugging first of course. Now it is working just fine. Thank you fixya for all your help and postings.
I still can't find the model number anyplace on the unit. This unit is only 2 1/2 year old but no model number to be found on the unit. But

I had a similar problem where the refrigerator side was not cooling well but I could feel very little air coming through the vent in the top left corner.I blew hot air from a blow driver into the vent for about 1 minute which melted ice that was hanging from the bottom of the vent cover.Cold air started blowing harder thru the vent and cured the problem.

SOURCE: Refrigerator is not cool
First you need to measure the temp in the frig. Place a thermometer in a glass of water overnight or in a jar of pickles. If the temp is not below 40 deg F it is too warm. It could be anything from the fan running too slow, to frost buildup due to failed or failing components in the defrost circuit. If the thermostat is all the way up and everything else is working properly it could be the thermostat. Make sure nothing is blocking the places where the air enters and exits th refrigerator from the freezer. Please let me know what you find.....Eric

Loss of coldness is common with compressor related problems....relay and overload(simple fix), loss/leak of refridgerant(need a cert. tech). need to check the compressor and see if its running....do this by pulling the unit out and removing the back panel, place your hand on the compressor and see if it feels like its running....if not probably just a relay, if it is running, could be a more serious problem dealing with sealed system.
