GE Refrigerator Cooling problems

My "inherited" GBX25 Refrigerator is well cared for and in almost new condition. However it only gets "cold" in the freezer and "cool" in the fresh food area, but ice cream melts and canned drinks are slightly cool. this has been a persistant problem in spite of 2 repairs. Everyone is just guessing at the solution. I set the thermostat to "coldest" in the freezer and there was no difference. The compressor was replaced about 3 years ago. I clean the coils regularly and the fan seems to run fine. The whole thing just doesn't get cold enough. Is there a "defrost" issue here? Can it be a faulty thermostat? Also what is the small 'one-way' plastic adjustment screw behind the thermostat panel located between the freezer dial and the fresh food knob? I can't find the schematic for this model. It is under a plastic plug and not accesible without removing the whole cover panel.
Thanks,
Sam

    I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator/freezer. The refrigerator side stopped cooling completely, and the freezer side cools like the refrigerator should. The ice maker makes no ice, but I notice frost building up in the freezer. This is supposed to be a frost-free refrigerator/freezer. I'm sure the frost buildup in the freezer has something to do with the lack of cooling, but I don't know where it is causing the frost. Even the water from the door is not cold, only room temperature.
