\015\012\015\012The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper)\015\012between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through\015\012it. There is a flap you adjust with the\015\012fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the\015\012fridge temp.

\015\012\015\012If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer\015\012are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of\015\012cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In\015\012most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.\015\012If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks\015\012and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace\015\012the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the\015\012timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

I've had this problem for a week now. The temperature in the freezer goes down to 25 degrees, but the temperature in the box stays at around 50 degrees. Cold air is coming into the refrigerator box, but even overnight it doesn't drop down enough to keep food in it.
