Light switch could be stuck on, to check that open the door somewhere on the side or bottom, there will be a little button, push it in & hold it, to see if the light goes out, if it does not go out, push it a couple of times more to help it to come unstuck, if the light will not go off the switch has to be replaced
the thermostat could be set to low, adjust to a higher number
check the door seal,; open the door 1/3 way,,& let go of the door,,see if it closes on it's own,, it should be a little hard to open after it's been shut,, also stick a dollar underneath the door seal & close the door,, then pull the dollar bill out & there should be a little drag,,if it pulls out to easy then the door needs adjusting,, or the door seal is bad...
to see if the seal is bad,,open the door,, & look at the seal,., it should not be flat or squashed in places, it should be firm all the way around,,
to adjust the door,, look on top of the frig,,there will be a door hindge on top,, some have a plastic cover & some don't,, if your has one remove it,, there should be 2 screws,,loosen both screws BUT DON'T TAKE SCREWS ALL THE WAY OUT,, grab the door & move it till it's even with the side & top,,,
then tighten the screws back,, then recheck with the dollar bill,,,
there are 10 other problems that would require a service tech to check & fix
hope this is helpful

My refrigerator stopped cooling and my freezer stopped freezing but the freezer is still cooling

Same thing with our GE Eterna Series - off and on for the last two weeks. Took back panel off, looked around, vacuumed dust build up off of the fan blades, etc.; everything worked fine for five good days. Then frig went out stopped cooling. Off and on for the last week. Unplugging it works for a day then back to not freezing and or colling.

Refrigerator not cooling. freezer works fine.

Try taking the front cover off at the bottom and or the back of the fridge and try vaccuuming underneath.  Make sure you unplug in when you do this.  Then plug it back in and see if that solved the problem.  You have fins and coils underneath that if they get really dirty the fridge will not work properly.  Hope this helps
