Hi and welcome to the forum.

Is the fridge an over/under or side by side? I'd begin by defrosting the unit, then check the fan that blows the freezer air into the fridge part.

Yes, concur with DM. I used to have to defrost mine periodically. The defrost either gets ovewhelmed or the theromstat, or the defrost timer fails.
