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.
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).Heavy buildup of ice indicates a defrost problem.

Model WBM412 - Freezer works but fridge does not cool at all.


Its due to freezing behind the freezer coil by which freezer fan gets logged to function. Defrost the refrigerator and then run. Keep freezer temp between -14*F and 8*F and fridge temp between 36*F and 46* F. And also check defrost cycling is properly working.

Thanks, helpful?

No cold air


Look into the rear of the freezer and see if there is a frost line building up on the rear panel. If yes the begin by unplugging and manually defrosting the freezer. Im going to locate your service manual and send it to you. You are sure the MBF2254H is your model? Sea Breeze

Mullion heater is not the problem. If the refrigerator is not cooling look to the freezer compartment for your problem. Air from the freezer is used to cool the refrigerator(s) section. If the freezer coil frosts up it stops air circulation to the rest of the system. Although you may think the freezer is working properly it may have a defrost problem and will show up there also. Look for signs of frost on the back wall of the freezer as a sign of the coil freezing. The mullion heater is designed to put out just enough heat to stop condensation between the outside temperatures and the inner compartmant temperatures. If the inner compartment is warm the heater will seem warmer than normal.
