Question about Refrigerators
How to check
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Three possible reasons, you have a main control board inside the fresh food section that may be defective. It's hiding behind the controls, then the defrost heater and defrost thermostat inside the freezer. I think I found the board replacement. we just need to look at the board with power unplugged to fridge. We will go from there if you need my help please double check the model number. I found 2 similar numbers but not yours. I will walk you through this if you want, let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Check the condenser fan, listen and see if it kicks on, if it doesn't then find someone that know how to take it apart and change them.
