Make sure the air vents between the freezer and refrigerator compartments are not blocked. Cold air enters and exits the refrigerator compartment from the freezer compartment through vents near the top shelf and crisper drawer. If the vents are blocked by food items, airflow will decrease, which will cause temperature and moisture problems. Move any item that could be blocking one of the vents.
If all vents are properly open.Then get the fan checked on the compressor.If the fan is not working or slow rthen the fan needs to be replaced.Also check if frost build up on the condenser coils at the back of freezer section.yes freezer section.If the frost is build up on the freezer section coils then it will not let the refrigerator section to get cool because the defrost cycle is not working.So check the defrost thermostat/heater and defrost timer.On some newer models there is Automatic defrost control board instead of defrost timer.So the defrost assembly parts needs to be checked.If the drain line is clogged or the ventilations are getting clogged due to blocked ice cubes in them then the freezer will cool or freezer will cool bit more then required but the refrigerator will loose its cooling.
So for starting troubleshooting  try the manual defrost reset procedure first:--
When the automaticdefrost system quits working frost builds up on the coils inside the freezersection and impedes airflow to the refrigerated section.
You may end up having to replace a defrost timer.

the evaporator coilsnever go bad or faulty mostly it only stops working if the over load of icefrost gets collected in between the coil and the evaporator fan dueto things the coil actually does not get required hot andthis makes freezer bit more cold and refrigerator very low cooling or may behot. also the other air ventilations gets blocked dueto evaporator coils stop working .to resolve this issuethe only best option is to empty the fridge/freezer unit and unplugthe unit from main power out let keep the door open of the unit and leave itfor 24 hours this melts all the collected ice in the coil as well as in the airventilation area. after that clean the inner area of unit with a dry cloth andthen plug in the connection and turn the unit ON keepingthe temperature at normal settings. then check out after two hours ifthe unit works proper the evaporator coil was the fault and that gotcleared from the unit by defrosting .but if the problem  is same as before after two hours when youcheck then its  faulty defrost assembly unit.
It has to be checked and replaced.

Kelvinator fridge not cooling


Try defrosting the fridge. Check the cold plate at the back of the food compartment once the fridge has been defrosted and turned back on again. The cold plate in the freezer (around the walls) will be cold to touch as will the cold plate at the back of the fridge,

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. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Refridgerator side not cold freezer side fine


Difficult to properly diagnois with such a brief description, but try the following as a good first step at correcting the problem. Reset the freezer and fridge thermostat settings at the factory default. Also, check the freezer section to make sure nothing is blocking the cold air supply vent into the fridge, do the same on the fridge side too.

Normally is the freezer is working fine, and the fridge is warm, it can be due to either a blockage of the cold air cross vent by items in either the freezer, fridge, or both, preventing proper cold air flow from the freezer into the fridge. Also, check to see if the cold air vent is not frozen or obstructed, with a fashlight (you;ll need to remove stuff from fridge and freezer to make this possible to check.

If the vent is not obstructed and you can clearly feel cold air passing from the freezer into the fridge, it is possible that the cold air vent control has ceased operating properly and needs to be replaced. Usually though this type of problem is caused by people over stuffing things into the freezer section and blocking the cold air cross over vent. Hope this helps.

Belling B160 Fridge is warm Freezer is cold


In fridge freezer where the fridge is under the freezer, the cold air falls down a channel from the freezer. I had a similar problem and it was a failed defrost thermostat. The evaporator in the back of the freezer was a solid lump of ice and wasn't allowing any cold air to drop into the fridge. The defrost thermostat was changed and then 30 minutes with a heat gun melted the ice. It was worked fine ever since. On a side by side fridge, there is a bypass from the freezer to the fridge. Either way, you need an engineer. You are not the only one to see this problem with that model. I see two in Google.

Freezer cold but not fridge


too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.

All the cold air from your freezer gets pushed into the fridge with a fan in your freezer section. So your problem is from the fact that this cold air isn't get to your fridge.
- the door that allows this cold air into the fridge, normally in the top left corner of the fridge, is stuck shut and needs replacement.
-the freezer isn't defrosting and restricting the air flow
-the temp controller for the fridge is damaged and thinks that the fridge is cold enough.
