If the freezer temps are normal and the refrigerator is warmer than normal, the the air flow from freezer to refrigerator is being hampered either by ice on the evaporator or the freezer is stuff in such a way that normal airflow between freezer and fridge is hampered. If the auto defrost is not working properly you will have warmer freezer temps and a relatively warm refridge. Check the defrost timer and defrost heater element.
it could be a thermostat or it could be the relay on the back of the fridge. the relay on the compressor may be bad. pull the fridge out and see if you can feel the compressor. and see if it is hot and if the fan is blowing... if not replace the relay.
Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice . If not. you have other issues, this does sound funny, but this is why your refrigerator side is warm, or not cooling.
Here is a list of some things that can go wrong. 1. Defective heat coil 2. Defective defrost timer 3. Defective defrost sensor 4. Defective Fan 5. Defective compartment inlet damper (on some models)
You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

its the problem of defrost timer.due to this the cold air from freezer section is not getting in to refrigerator section and its getting warm.check out the defrost timer.located beside the compressor at the back lower side of the unit.the cost of new defrost timer is near to $40.and you can get it from www.repairclinic.com
Take out all shelves and accessories that can be removed. Wash these thoroughly with a mild detergent (dish washing liquid and warm water) and rinse thoroughly. Allow them to air dry completely. * Wipe the inside walls of the refrigerator and freezer down completely with a solution of 1 quart warm water and 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Wipe the walls completely dry. * Leave the doors standing wide open. Use a fan to circulate air through the cabinets for several hours to completely dry the inside walls. After several hours, turn the fan off. * Replace the shelves in the refrigerator. Place shallow trays of one of the following deodorizers on the shelves of the refrigerator and freezer: o Baking soda o Activated carbon (used in aquarium filters, can be obtained at a pet store) o Cat litter o Fresh and unused coffee grounds (this may leave a coffee smell that would dissipate after several days) * After 24 hours, plug in the refrigerator and allow it to cool for several hours with the deodorizer still in place. Once cooled to normal operating temperature, remove the trays of deodorizer and put your food back into the refrigerator and freezer. * Keep some cereal size bowls of a deodorizer in the freezer and refrigerator cabinets for several days
check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, by compressor
Make sure compressor is running and not shutting off on overload.. u said comp. hot.. should be warm... Not hot
check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting,
you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
