I had the same problem. I removed the rear panel of the freezer (4 screws), removed ice maker, and found the evaporator fan that blows cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator was bad. I removed old fan and began calling around for the replacement part. Turns out the original encased fan motor went bad because the motor was encased and condensation caused the motor to go bad. The new motor came with brackets and new unenclosed motor. Took 1 screw driver and about 1-2 hours of work. Make sure power and water is off before working on unit.

When the freezer section gets cold and reaches its required cooling temperature, after that the frost on freezer section starts defrosting and the cooling fan in the freezer section blows this cool air from freezer to fridge. But if the defrost cycle does not start then over ice will get collected on freezer ventilations and that will block the air passing section from freezer to fridge, so the freezer gets cool but fridge section does not cool. ---------------
Its defrost problem. Try manual defrost by unplugging the refrigerator from main power outlet for 24 hours then reconnect it and check, if the same problem is noticed again,. If yes then its defrost board problem. The defrost board located in the back of fridge section. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com or from online sears part site. ------------- Thank you.
The temp sensor is the most likely cause of this problem. However, you have other possible options that you can test and check:
likely the problem with your fridge is a bad dumper control. This is a
part which operates with the air flow from the freezer into the fresh
The dumper control is located in the in the upper left corner in the fresh food compartment.
kindly look at the back panel of the freezer section. if you can hear the humming sound, find out where it is coming from. if the sound is coming from the compressor, that means the evaporator fan is not running.
but, take note that u need to press the door switch of the freezer in order to check the fan. the fan stops every time the door is open. if the fan is not running, you have to remove the middle panel, above the evaporator, the fan would be there. ( in the freezer section)
but if the fan is running and the back panel of the freezer is full of frost, then that would be a defrost issue.
