fridge to warm? check thermistor, the cold control ( sometimes called defrost timer) and the air control assembly, check to see if air control is to far closed or opened? the inlet to the fridge from freezer. sometimes a bad defrost terminator will hinder the air flow and freeze up the fan from operating and freezer section thus no air flow to the fridge..
where is the freezer on top,side by side or the bottom.all a fridge does is blow cold air from the freezer to the fridge side that's it,if the fridge is warm there's a problem most likely in the freezer,a plugged drain or when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing,if not you have a bad evap fan motor,also check your warranty it still might be covered.send the model number and i can help you,if you see water under the bottom draws or in the fridge section if the freezer is on top you have a blocked drain in the freezer.let me know what you find and i can help you
. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start. Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. If the relay is ok there is a compressor problem or low freon it it don't start
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.
Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm
Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.
Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).
Sounds like a bad compressor relay on the main control board . To verify , pull the refrig out and unplug . Remove the 8X10 small cover , to expose the control board . Look for the blue plug with 3 larger wires going to it and disconnect from the board . Looking at the plug , you will see : wire1 , wire2 , space , wire 3 . Use a jumper from wire1 to wire3 and plug the refrig back in . This will send power directly to the compressor , indicating the board is bad if the compressor starts . If it starts , remove the control board and look on the solder side just opposite the " black boxes " and look for a bulls eye ( pin in the middle where the solder has melted away from it . Resolder this pin . If no bulls eye , replace the main board as the relay is shorted internally . If replaceing the board , your model NUMBER is important to get the correct board . Only 2 boards but model number necessary .
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. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp. The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

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.
Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.
