Whirlpool Refrigerator Model ED5FHAXVS Side By Side "Not Cooling"
The unit is not cooling on the Fridge side only. Temperature control has been adjusted and problem still persist? Any ideas on how to troubleshoot? I noticed a vent in the upper left hand corner and feel no cold air flowing?

It is constantly running because the thermostat in your refrigerator registers a warm temperature that never reaches target. Your refrigerator's cooling is dependant on your freezer - obviously your evaporator fan is working since your freezer is cooling, however that cool air is, for some reason not reaching your fridge - Make sure the vents are not blocked or plugged with ice - If applicable also check the damper, maybe the flap is not opening at all, letting cool air in.
Also check door seals and make sure te light switches off by pressing the door contact button.
The freezer get the first crack at cooling and combination units have a fan and adjustable vents to steal some of the cooling capacity for the refrigerator.
The vent are normally located in the back of the refrigerator compartment and with these, you can balance the cooling capacity between freezer and fridge.
I recommend you swap your thermometer back and forth until you get the balance you want; typically the freezer should be at 5 degrees F or below and the fridge at 35-40 degrees F.
Adjusting the control for temperature and having the vents set to supply the cold air you want in each compartment should give you the range you want in each.
