Fridge not cold
Since there is no much info's about your problem, I let all the solutions that could be applied in such a situation.
Possibility 1: I suppose, the gas has run out. Often this is the reason why Refrigerators stops cooling. But we would assume it as a big trouble.
Possibility 2: The fan blowing the cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator may not be working.
Possibility 3: Your defrost thermostat is shot.
you'll have to defrost the whole thing.
Possibility 4: If no other above option suits your need, Unplug the unit, remove the contents of the freezer, and you should see
an opening in the back of the freezer compartment and about four screws
that hold the back panel in place, if you remove these screws the back
panel should come out exposing the fan, coils and defrost element. if
this fan can be spun with your finger then plug in the unit, hold in
the light button and the fan should run. You should also see if the
coils are iced over. This may indicate the unit does not defrost
properly. If the evaporator fan does not run, this would account for
why the lower frig does not stay cool. you can remove the fan and check
it with a meter to see if it is good. There are other parts in this
compartment that keep the fan from running while the defrost cycle is
in place so if you remove the fan and it checks out as OK then the
button that controls the light is prob. OK if the light goes on and off
as you depress the button and release.
Beyond these simple tests you should contact a repair person, depending
on the age of the refrigerator, there are several other possibilities.
Possibility 5: If nothing is helpful, cutting on and off the refrigerator may resolve the issue.
I suppose, there can't be any more solution for this. I suggest you to post more details here after so that you get the most apt solution.
