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.

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.
