yes the freezer door not closing properly will effect the refrigerator. also check in the freezer back wall and bottom for any frost buildup. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

check the fan relay and the compressor to make sure it is still working...if not there is a capasiter you can replace to get it to work again

I had this problem last year. I unplugged the the refrigerator and plugged it in an hour later it worked for a little while then quit over night. I finally called a sears repair they came 2 weeks later it was the motherboard, could have fixed it myself, what a hassle. Thankfully I have a fridge in the basement. Still this is a do it yourself.

The problem is in the defrost system.. You have a defrost heater in your freezer that comes on 3 times a day & melts the frost to keep your freezer frost free. That frost turns to water & runs down a drain & eventually goes to a drain pan located under the unit. On these models the hole for the drain is located directly under the evaparator fan. The drain hole is to far from the heater so the water settles & then freezes around the fan blades causing it to stop spinning. Its that fans job to circulate cold air from the freezer to the fridge, so now all the cold air is staying in your freezer. Last I knew they were workin on a solution to this but you need to contact the manufacturer. A temporary fix would be to unplug & then defrost the freezer by taking out the freezer panel & melting all the ice. Boiling water is effective. When you get the ice gone from around the fan you should be able to see the drain hole & be sure water runs freely down the hole. Put it back together then adjust the front legs of the fridge so the whole unit slopes back slightly causing the water to run back to that drain hole without settling.

Make sure the cooling fins are free of dust and debris. If not try to recharge the freon supply. If that don't work the compressor might be going bad. Which in most cases it's easier to replace the unit after parts and labor you could be looking at some serious money......Hope that was helpful....... : )
