Any advice about addressing this? Our freezer has no problems, but the fridge side is staying too warm, even at the coldest setting. Where's a good place to start? I'd love to tackle it myself, but some direction would be great.

is the fan on in the freezer?? if not then you need a new evap fan..also check to see if there is frost build up on the back panel in the freezer section if so then you have a defrost issue could be a bad heater..to bandaid the problem..defrost the freezer back panel so air can flow into fridge side, but you will need to address the problem within a week or it will build up again
When plugging it back in, check to see if you can feel air circulation (from vents in the top-rear) on the refrigeration side.
Check again after the fridge starts to warm.
There is a fan which is supposed to distribute the cooled air from the freezer to the fridge; this may be failing after the fan has warmed from operation.
The bearings in these is primitive and can get sticky impeding the fan's rotation.
Replacement of that fan is not covered by the (longer) compressor warranty.
See if cold air is coming out of the air diffuser top-back freezer side of fridge. A common problem is a bad air diffuser assembly. Sometimes it may freeze closed and break when it tries to cycle. The freezer usually works fine.
you could find ice behind the back panel - worth a check. however the problem is probably ice in the return vent from fridge to freezer and the only way to cure is to switch off and leave for a day with doors open. if im right and you try this, if it re-occurs you may have a problem with the defrost system
Solo, firt make sure you do not have a build up of frost on the freezer inside panel. This would indicate a defrost problem. Your post states that the cooling problem is intermitant which leads me to believe that the automatic damper is at fault. It could have a build up of ice on it which is causing it to bind, or it could just be going bad. Your model does have the manual defrost timer which could be sticking at times, that is why I suggest checking the back freezer panel for frost buildup. Catriver..post back.
