Re: fridge does not keep cold, but freezer is over...
You should be able hear, and feel the air from, a running fan inside the cabinet, in either side.
The common arrangement is having the coils located (behind the wall) in the freezer section and then the fan moves a controlled amount of the frigid air to the refrigerator section via openings located in the rear of the compartment. The vents are normally adjustable so the temperature can be balanced between the two compartments.
If there is no noticeable air coming from this vent, then the fan has died.

All the big cooling happens inside freezer compartment. Freezer gives little cool air to fridge compartment. Now when the vent blocks that little cold air cannot go into fridge compartment. Thus your freezer works good but not fridge compartment. Milk goes bad but frozen meet keeps good.....
Vent freeze up either due to defrost problemt, defrost drain line problem, Evaporator fan problem or even can be your damper motor not opening due to unit failure or frozen damper door.
Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
If it runs then that cold control is the problem.
No,what it appears to be isthe evaporator is freezing over and hindering air flow. The water under the ice maker is actually condensation because the ice maker is colder than the cabinet temp. The unit should have an automatic defrost so it appears it is cycleling through yhe defrost. Unless you call out a tech to set the defrost timer, all you can do is unplug it and defrost in its own. Was the door ajar for any period of time? not completely closed? That will also do it because of humidity. The moisture in the air will freeze. The refrigerator side cools from bleed over from the freezer.
Sounds like a main control board problem keeping the freezer fan from working . If no air flow to the top of the freezer , the icemaker will stop working and the ice will begin to melt ( leaking from freezer ) . The coils will start to freeze up due to no air flow across them . If continued for a period of time , the cold air could return thru the return vent located in the bottom of the ref/freezer section and freeze the water tank in the refrig section , causing the no water thru dispensor .
The ice maker won't work if the freezer is warmer than 17 degrees so that's not an issue till you get the freezer cold again.
I would guess that your unit is stuck in the defrost cycle. This could be the defrost timer failing. See if you can find the defrost timer in your unit and advance it by hand if possible.
