Question about Refrigerators
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Almost always, your described condition indicates that the air from the freezer is not being drawn to the refrigerator area. Since as you posted, the fan works, try to determine if a draft of air could be felt where the fan blows down to the refrigerator section. If yes, then suspect the the freezer's temperature is not cold enough to extend to the refrigerator section. This may be brought about by a faulty thermostat. If no, then it would be likely that for some reason the air passage way is blocked and therefore the air from the freezer is prevented from going to the refrigerator section.
A way to test is to open the refrigerator door. Locate and press on the door switch. Inside light should turn off. Maintaining this position after a minute or so, the fan should kick in. Try to feel if their is a strong air flow, if none, then air path is block (or fan not working).
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information or for any updates on developments.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

If you have already checked the thermostat setting inside the fridge to make sure its not set to the warmest setting, then there really isnt anything anyone here can do without actually looking at the fridge, checking the refrigerant, checking the compressor, the evaporator, etc.
A qualified refrigeration technician can certainly troubleshoot it for ya.
