There is a damper between the 2 sections that opens and closes based on the temp of the fridge.
One of the following could be the problem...

FREEZER IS TO COLD, REFRIGERATOR TO WARM


if you can; find the vent(s) between the top and, bottom boxes (where the evaporator fan is located: closing these vents makes the freezer colder and, the refrigerator warmer, opening these vents the reverse is true.

Water dripping into refrigerator from cooling area


Your defrost drain in the freezer is frozen closed.
Turn the fridge off.
Remove the rear freezer panel.
Remove the visible ice.
Use a hair dryer to thaw the drain hole in the back of the freezer in the center of the drain trough.

Condensation on refrigerator front btwn top freezer and refrigerator doors


I have the same problem with my frig in the basement. I get condensation and resulting mold on the top outer surface and related areas. This is from the surface being cold, with resulting outside moist air condensing on the cold surface. Best solution - spray/wipe the surface with a bleach and water solution, let it soak a few minutes, then wipe off with a rag. Add a drop of dishwasher soap to a mixture of roughly 4 parts water to one part bleach. Repeat if necessary. Do this as often as the problem seems to creep up again. Good luck!
