I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........
In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.
Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.
Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)
Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

soiunds like the coil on the refrigerator side is iced up.take and open the refrfigerator side and take a blow drier and after removing the 11 screws use the hair drier to slowly melt the icec behind the cover. If you pull too hard and or too soon you'll break the stryofoam ductin that has to be around the coil. then make sure that the drain line is clear reassemble and have a Merry Christmas!

Sounds like the FF(Freezer Fan) is wearing out or is worn out. This assembly supplies the circulation for the freezer as well as the refrigerator. When is slows down or stops the circulation of cold air to the refrigerator is the first thing that is effected. The minimum cost to replace this assembly is around $300.00

Sounds like you have a defective thermistor....The problem is there are 4 that deal with Fridge and Freezer compartments...There are tests that you can run from the display panel. You will not hurt anything by trying the tests...It is too difficult to explain the tests but here is a link a pdf for the RB215 that will help you if you or someone can follow directions...
Most servicers don't have a clue about this stuff....bummer
