This is a most common problem it can be only due to how you're setting the two controls, you may think one is for the freezer and one is for the fridge,in a sence it can be true but in fact it is not. The bottom part we call the refrigerator is only a empty box and the cooling is coming from the top freezer through a hole covered by a slid which can wide open or close the hole . And this control they call freezer control and when you set this freezer control to the coldest accuraly you are closeing the hole and not letting too much cold air coming down to the refrigerator , now you've a very cold freezer but a warmer refrigerator so if you want a colder refrigerator you've to wide open the slid and letting more cold air coming from the freezer.You can try out this by putting your hand over the air outlet in the refrigerator and then turn the freezer control, and you'll feel the cool air coming stronger or weaker by truning the freezer control.This is what I would do first before going in to check the defrost cycle . Hope this help, have a nice day God Bless.

Check to make sure the light in the fridge shuts off when the door is closed. You'd be surprised how much heat is given off by that light. If it stays on either take it out or replace the switch.

The top freezer is working but lower part refrigerator compartment doesn't cool at all even adjusting temperature to Max cooling??? It is like fan doesn;t blow cold air from the freezer


There is a drain that carries water from the freezer to a drain pan in the base of the fridge. It has plugged preventing water from draining and in turn the water has froze blocking the flow of air to the fridge. First you must find the drain line in the rear of the fridge and unplug it as well as thaw the fridge out overnight to allow the water to drain... be patient as there will be a lot of ice to be thawed out, let me know if it works! good luck!
