If both freezer and fridge are warmer than usual it could be a problem with the self defrosting circuit not working properly and causing the evaporator to freeze up.

Frig too warm, freezer too cold

if there is ice build up you have a defrost problem. either the heater bimetal thermostat timer or evap fan could be bad. you could also have a stopped up drain. if the coils get too much ice build up the air wont beable to travel through them and the bad air flow will cause the fridge to become warmer

Frig dying?

There is only one cooling unit, airflow dictates percentage split.
Look for airflow blockage in the freezer section.

Freezer stays warmer than frig

Jim, chk for air diverter in wrong position
the fridge cools from freezer air flow direction control. Like a door. The more/less controls may be messed up.
