Question about Kitchen Ranges
The most common faults causing this problem are related to the defrost system.
Try performing a complete defrost, leaving the fridge off overnight. If problem disappears and come back after few days or weeks, then you may need to replace defrost termostat, element or fan.
If problem does not come back after defrost, then it was probably due to damper motor blocked by ice.
Other problems that can cause insufficient cooling are compressor problems, refrigerant leaks, and depending on the model, electronic control faults.
Start testing if the problem is the defrost system by leaving the unit disconnected or off for 24 or 48 hours.
As said, if problem was the defrost system, then the problem will disappear after full defrost, to come back in a couple of weeks.
Cross fingers and hope that the problem was fan blades frozen. You can follow the general troubleshooting illustrated here (the article refers to a different fridge, a Whirpool built Kenmore model, things are not too different on your Model):Kenmore side by side...
