The fault looks like the cold air flow is choked . Look behind the panel of the freezer, the duct to the fridge, there must be flow of cold air. If so remove the back panel of the freezer and check if the fan is working , if there is frost build up on the duct to the fridge. If so the auto defrost is not working. This is a timer located at the bottom rear of the fridge which will activate the heaters over a period of 8 hours cycle.
If there is no frost within as you mentioned it was put off for 24 hours, then it can be only the flow .
Trace from the flow area of the fridge to inspect for the block as there is nothing like a first view than to speculate.

    direction of the fan flow of air , Is it inthe right dirrection? You must get the cold air flow into the duct. Is the duct blocked? just check this out. You are doing good.

Freezer works great, but fridg. will not get below 50

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.

the ice maker wont cycle untill the temp of the ice is around 10 degrees so if the freezer is at 15 or 20 due to some other malfunction then you will see the maker full of ice but it wont harvest and make another batch. so you could have a sensor bad, control malfunction, refrigeration issue, compressor, defrost system malfunction(you mentioned ice build up)

You have a clogged defrost drain tube. best way is to thaw unit out. Your vents are being blocked so no air flow is pushed down.
