Refrigerator not cooling but freezer works great

Refrigerator not cooling but freezer works great.
Ref not cooling below 40 degree but freezer freezes items as solid as a rock. Ice maker working great. Have emptied refrigerator compartment and freezer compartment to make sure air flow is not blocked. Still does not cool.

40F is considered a safe temp for a fridge. 37F is considered ideal. What kind of fridge do you have? Some have electronic temp control, others require you to move a thermistor to adjust the temp. Giving a brand/model may get you information on how to adjust.

The cooling comes from the freezer to the fridge. Is the circulation fan working? Blocked by ice??? If the freezer is working then at least you know the compressor and cooling system are operating (the most expensive parts). If you can't find the air flow problem, you might need an appliance repairman.

I have experienced similar symptoms in my residential style Whirlpool, thinking it might be the thermostat control in the fridge.

Can you hear the fan running in the freezer? If not thatís your problem.
Had it happen twice. Fan replaced both times.
