Setting it to 5 is what the manufacturer recommends. If you set it to 1 and the frig is still not cold, then you probably have a faulty cold control (thermostat)

Your defrost element is probably faulty, this is in the freezer compartment at the back and behind a removeable panel. You should change both the element and the defrost limiting thermodisc at the same time.

This could be the defrost timer or the defrost heater coil... The evaporator coils are located at the back of the freezer compartment. To access you will need to remove all the racks and then there is a cover held on by a few screws at the back of freezer and under it you will see the coils... Do not beat bang or scrape them... Use a hair dryer or heat gun to melt ice or you could just use hot water . Put your model #.JCB2388GTB into searspartsdirect.com and they will show parts diagrams.
If I can help with anything else please let me know.

If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out ACMEHowTo.com for troubleshooting the defroster problem.
There is a small duct between the freezer and refrigerator side if this is blocked the frig side won't cool.
