Re: fridge not cold freezer is fine
Your defrost element is faulty, this is attached to the bottom of the freezer coils and also has a defrost limiting thermodisc which should be replaced at the same time. You are getting a freeze up and therefore no air circulation. Also check that the fanmotor is ok.

According to the picture posted the freezer defrost is stuck on. Why it would not get cold enough. Contact a local appliance repairman and get professional help as this should require control board repair/replace.
looks as evaporator fan is working. have you ever clean condensor under the fridge. possibility it is pluged with dust and not allowing compressor to cool down. Also check the fan at the back of the fridge beside the compressor. see if it is working
this might have something to do with the defrost disk located in the frezzer behind the panel, its a small round disk attached to your coils. get a part or model number and look it up. hope this helps.
the evaporator coil is frozen over and cant release cold air due to this,defrost the unit remove rear panel inside freezer and troubleshoot the defrost heater and thermostat and also make sure the fan near this coil is running, on the evaporator coil as,you cant blow cold air thru a coil covered by ice
The problem you are having is what is called defrost. This unit is supposed to do a defrost every 8 hours. If it fails to do so the coils will get a heavy heavy frost on them and the evap fan cannot circulate the cold air thru the freezer and into the fridge. you will need to defrost the coils with a hair dryer. Will probably take about 45 min.'s to a hour. The most common cause for this is the defrost heater located at the bottom of the coils. Replace this and you will be fine to go. Part number is wr51x10101
Have you pulled out the refrigerator and cleaned or used a vacum cleaner to get out the dirt and dust off the back of the coils, or if the coils are underneath, you need to get an inexpensive appliance brush for fridge, and clean the coils under the fridge, pull off the panel on the front bottom of the fridge, get a flash light and look to see if the coils are covered in dust....may just need to vacum and use appliance brush underneath...this should be done at least one a year, you will notice your fridge running much better and cooling back to normal.......hope this helps......
If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.
Generaly the control board controls everything sometimes you have a bad thermister GE has a help line I beleive it costs 20.00 bucks but you will need a meter and know how to use it and they willl talk you thru the repair .
there is a fan in the back of the freezer that pushes air into the fridge side of the fridge it sounds like this has gone out on you. this fan is usually right by the coils in the freezer the only thing that keeps the fridge cold is a little air being pushed over there constantly
It sounds like cold air from the freezer isn't making it to the fridge compartment. This can be cause by a several things. The damper that lets air into the fresh food side is stuck in "closed" position, the temp sensor (t-stat) isn't working properly, the evaporator fan (in the freezer comp above the coils) isn't working to blow air up to the fresh food section. In some situations, the defrost cycle for the freezer section isn't working and the coils have frozen into a block of ice and air can't flow over them properly so you get not cold air to the fresh food section but the freezer still stays cold due to the block of ice.
