Re: Kitchenaid side by side refrigerator
First thing I would check...is this unit frosting up? Turn it off for two days...with the doors open...to defrost completely. Clean out the condenser coils with a brush. Inspect and clean any gaskets not sealing. When restarting...open up the back panel and check the compressor. It is that big black thing. Find and clean off the largest pipe. Watch the pipe...It will frost initially on startup. Does the frost remain after 5 minutes or turn to ice, water or dry out? If still frosty, you are low on gas. If other conditions, then you either are opening the door too often, those gaskets are damaged or you have defrost issues.

Is there a fan that blows air over the cooling coils in the freezer? Not sure if side-by-side fridges have this. This was the reason for my top freezer / bottom fridge. Air was not being blown around the freezer and down into the fridge.
the freezer does all the cooling for both sides a few shelves down in the fridge on the left hand side there is an air intake make sure nothing is blocking it also listen for the freezer fan to run if its not look at the coils in the bottom of the freezer to see if they are heavly frosted in the fridge side at the top left side should be some vents hold your hand there to see if air is blowing through if not reply to me well go from there
Things to check
for Frost build up and if Fan is blowing,
To make sure clean, and the fan is blowing by compressor & IF it is running
Check Recirclating Vents in refrigerator... to make sure theres no blockage,
CONTROLS ...should be in the middle setting,
YOU CAN TRY turning FREEZER CONTROL
To A WARMER FREEZER SETTING
Allowing.. MORE AIR.. to refrigertor side
