Question about Kenmore 50522 / 50524 Side by Side Refrigerator
I am having a weird problem with my fridge. The freezer freezes but the fridge is warm. I have made shure all air access ports and doors are clear. The condenser isnt frozen, turned the fridge all the way up, condenser fan working, coils are clean, fan in freezer clean and working, lights up, and I get water get ice, and the frozen stuff is froze, but the fresh food side is warm about 50 degrees F. What do I check next. Thank-you for any advice/help you can give
I can offer a suggestion. It sounds like you have a plugged defrost drain line. This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is plugged and now the water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air circulate down into your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in this case is to unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment. Usually I also end up either pulling off the back panel or the bottom panel (in the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost drain hole and thawing it out with a heat gun (be careful of melting plastic) or actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also by pouring small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this until I get the water to go down the drain tube

Tips for a great answer:
Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool,
then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling,
then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not
