First check for a thick frost buildup on the back panel of the freezer at the bottom. Also, check to see if the fan in the freezer is running. Let me know what you find so I can lead you in the right direction.

Need to see if the damper is open inside the fridge. This the vent in to top left hand corner. If it is not open then the damper needs to be replaced. If it is open then one of the return vents (lower part of fridge) is blocked/plugged. Let me know what you find.

You may be having a defrost issue, when ice builds up in the back panel inside the freezer section it causes an air flow restriction to the frig side. You can try letting it defrost and if it starts cooling again it may be the defrost thermostat located on the heater.

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use
and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater
comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost
drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the
freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer
