The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Testimonial: "Thanks, I have checked that, but the vent at the bottom of the fridge section is a rigid plastic grill, which doesn't, nor looks like it should move. "
remove the rear panel on the inside rear of the freezer to assure that you dont have an icebuild up on the evaporator if you do have an ice build up this is mainly due to your unit having a defrost issue this is mainly caused by one of four reasons. The defrost thermostat, the defrost heater, the defrost timer all of these three can be checked by doing a continuity test on some units a defrost timer is not used and instead the use of an electrical control board is instead used also assure when you remove this panel that the fan behind that back wall in the freezer is also running if not replace the fan if you have no ice and the fan is working you would then look at the either the damper door on the inside of the refrigerator or the damper control. The freezer side of a refrigerator is the only side that produces the cold a small door opens and closes allowing the cold air to go into the refrigerator side when the unit gets to cold the door shuts and likewise when it gets to warm the door opens if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in the future Thanks Rick
