Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
It is possible the unit may cycle more, if a sufficient load is not
kept in the compartments. Try to maintain at least a half load, in both
sections. The cold food will help maintain the temperature longer,
before it starts rising. Frequent opening of the doors or keeping them
open for long periods, will cause the compressor to cycle more often.
Check for gaps in the door gasket. If there are any gaps, you can use a
hair dryer to smooth them out. Just be careful not to get it too hot. If
the temperature is colder then normal due to excessive run time, you
can adjust the controls to a slightly warmer setting.
The normal temp range for the fridge is 36 - 40 and the freezer is 0 - 5 degrees. To check the temperature in the freezer, place a thermometer between some packages. Air temperature is not a good check. To check the fridge temperature, place a thermometer in some liquid. A glass of water will work good for this.
I hope this will help you.

The problem you describe is very frequent. The fridge is getting the coldness from the freezer through a chant and the force of a motor fan Motor evaporator
Number: 173301 Substitution: 5300158289 part no. 26. So the build up of ice in the freezer is blocking the air pass thought and get the fridge cold. Also it may block the fan motor blades from rotating.
So the first you need to check is the heating element on the evaporator in the freezer department. This element might have burn out (and now is open circuit) and even f the defrost timer give instruction for start heating up the element is bad so the defrost is not performed. You just need to replace the heating element. Heater
Is the part no 1 in the diagram in this link.
If the heating element then the defrost timer is bad and does not give any instruction to the heater so you need to replace the defrost timer Defrost timer
