I would start with the fan. There is a fan that sends cool air into the refrigerator compartment. They have been known to fail. The fan may be behind the refrigerator or behind a panel in the freezer. They are relatively simple to change if you find it. Had one go out a few years ago and has not failed since.

SOURCE: my refrigerator is not cooling the freezer is working

please check the rear interior freezer wall to see if there is any ice built up.If yes,that means you have a defrost heater problem.The defrost system consists of 3 components,1)defrost timer,2)the actual heater(which is located right inside the evaporator coil compartment),and 3)a terminating stat(which shuts off the the heater before the heat cycle ends to prevent overheating).There are ways to test this with a volt and amp meter. So,if this is the case,and you need a temporary fix,and I do mean temporary,(3-5 days)you can turn off the fridge for 24 hours and leave just the freezer door open until the ice melts,OR unplug fridge,then remove the interior back panel of the freezer and melt the ice by pouring hot water over the iced up coils(CAUTION:DO NOT POKE IT WITH AN ICE PICK OR ANYTHING,YOU WILL MAKE A HOLE IN THE EVAPORATOR).after ice is melted,reassemble rear panel plug it in,and it will buy you a few days. In a refrigerator, all the cold is produced in the freezer section,then through a small hole in the dividing wall,a small percentage of cool air is blown into the fresh food section.When the coils do not defrost 3-4 times a day like they should,the air cannot pass thru them and no air will be delivered to the fresh food section. Now, if you don't see any traces of ice buildup,you may have the air exchange door in the wrong position.The air door is a little door that determines how much air is passing thru to the fresh food section.Most fridges have the selector with either numbers or letters.Example A-B-C-D-E OR 1-2-3-4-5.Now when this air door selector is in the "1" or "A" position it means the maximum amount of cold air is going to the fresh food section,which in your case,is where you want it to go. Anyway if this is the case with you, after you have made the adjustment,please wait 24 hours to take effect,it's a slow process. I hope these suggestions help you. I know I probably gave more info than you needed to know. Good luck

SOURCE: my refrigerator won't stay cool but my freezer works fine

You have something wrong with the vent going from the freezer to the fridge. You probably have a defrost problem and ice is blocking the vent that goes from the freezer and comes out in the roof of the rerigerator compartment. Replace your defrost timer and bimetal.
