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 4 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 or from online sears part site. ------------- Thank you.

I am considering buying a sharp bottom freezer refrigerator (SJ-F78SP). I want to know if there is any problem with the cooling or the auto defrost system. I had a panasonic bottom freezer refrigerator...

I would not buy a Sharp refrigerator. They make decent TVs, but I would be cautious purchasing a fridge. But something american like GE or Whirlpool. It's just my suggestion.
