First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.
So, how can the Ref side be cold and the freezer side not freezing?
1. Coolant leak. There is enough coolant to keep the Ref side cool but not enough to freeze on the freezer side.
2. Defrost system failure. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice and it's just a matter of time when the Ref side won't cool either. The back wall in the freezer will be covered with ice/frost

Experience tells me the design should maintain 40 -34 degrees in the refrigerator section when the freezer is between 0 and -10 You might check this if you have a thermometer for the job, and adjust the thermostat accordingly. Your unit may also have an airflow control (I didn't research) to adjust the refrigerator independent of the freezer.

Hi, Sounds like the damper or damper belt may be at fault. The cold air
enters the refer compartment through the damper in the back. If that
damper is not controlled to close/open as needed it is likely stuck
fully open all the time. That will let cold air in no matter what the
t-stat says. See if you can view with a mirror and see if the damper
"blinds" are fully open. If the t-stat is turned all the way down the
dampers should close, as less cold air is needed. Then, as the t-stat
is turned up, the dampers open to let in cold air from the freezer

Many times a freezer and/or refrigeratordo not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many otherthings that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out thelast two tips.

Normally in most situations if you are getting ice forming on the coils, and I mean ice, not frost, on either coil, be it freezer or fridge chances are you have a refrigerant problem. A good indication of this would be to expose the coils and see if the ice is localized, or more so concentrated in one portion of the coils, i.e. upper right corner, etc. Going further into the problem, the two things that would cause this is (1) a restriction in the line, (2) low pressure in the lines which is because of a leak or weak compressor. To really diagnose this problem accurately you need a set of refrigerant gauges and tap into the low side line of the sealed system.
