Brand new refrigerator...freezer works great, fridge does not

I have a brand new Frigdaire 21 cu. ft. refrigerator. The freezer temperature is perfect, but anything placed in the fridge spoils or goes rotten rather quickly. The temperature in the fridge is room temperature...approximately 70-75 degrees. I did go to the Frigdaire website, but their troubleshooting guide didn't help me at all.

    I forgot to add that the model is FRT21S6A, top freezer.

    It's not a side-by-side unit. It is a top-freezer type unit, so the diagram you posted really doesn't help me. But thanx for offering your help.

Try to defrost the unit, if it wont work check the air vents if air is present. Check also if some of your stuff may be obstructing the air vent.

Greetings! My Whirlpool 21 is not cooling on the bottom, but the fridge is OK. Art


I do not understand your question because your note says it is a top freezer, but the fridge is ok?
The bottom section IS the fridge on this type.
