3 things can cause this:

1) Inoperable fan in the freezer.
2) Defrost problem (frost build up on back panel in the freezer)
3) Damper inoperable (vent in the fridge section)

Look for these symptoms and let me know what you find.

SOURCE: Whirlpool bottom freezer - freezer working but fridge not cold

Hi check to see if the unit has 2 compessors! If so then remove the plug from the mains and remove the thermostat housing in the fridge compartment and join the live and common wires together and switch on! It then should start to freeze down. Just get a new stat if this happens and replace it. Becarefull not to bent the log capilary wire as this has a liquid in it and any kink in the wire will mean you will be buy another one..
Good luck....

The channel in the back were the cool air comes down from the freezer to the fridge may be iced up. Try defrosting the fridge/freezer for much longer than usual, all day if necessary.

You need to remove all of the styrofoam packing material.
Any insulation material would be installed inside the body of the fridge/freezer. The packing material is there so anything inside the compartment (like metal shelves, plastic holders, etc. don't bounce around during shipping and either scratch up the interior, or break. That is all that it is there for.

I have a whirlpool N387 that freezes in the freezer section but does not cool the fridge. I believe the problem may rest with the fan located at the back of the freezer. It seems to work intermittently. I...


Good initial troubleshooting...
In addition to lubricating the fan ... check the door button that activates the fan. Sometimes closing the door may not fully activate the switch .... some piece of plastic might be broken preventing full activation of the switch.
If the door switch looks fine and the fan runs .... then check the pathway that the air flows from the freezer to the fridge. Sometimes even though the freezer does not look bad with ice ... the pathway can get blocked with ice buildup. Has the total fridge been defrosted/deiced recently?
Or of course ... the fan may be on it's last legs ... but usually they last a long time.
Helpful?
Good luck on your troubleshooting

Sounds like you need a new thermostat to me. They are kinda expensive, not too hard to replace though.
