Frigidaire fridge not getting cold
 
Our fridge is about 7 years old and noe the fridge is not getting cold. The freezer works fine. Any troubleshooting i can DIY to try and find out whats going on? Thanks

Freezer is fine, that means that you most likely have ice clogging the duct between the fridge and freezer. Time to unload it, then grab a Phillips screwdriver to remove the bottom plate out of the freezer, and then you should be able to remove the duct on the back.

That is assuming that it is a upright with freezer on top, since you did not state model of the freezer, or post a picture of the unit.

Side by side and it starting working again. Thanks a lot for the advice!!!!

I would still take the back apart if it is not passing air through. Some have a defroster, some have a fan in that back chamber that passes air through the damper between freezer and fridge.

Ice is the main culprit that causes this problem.
