No Cold air in Roper Refrigerator

I have a 2002 roper refrigerator (not sure on the model) and the bottom part (fridge) is not getting cold. The freezer is plenty cold, but there is no air coming out of the vents in the bottom half. I have done the following:

1. Turned off entire unit for about 12 hours to see if there was any frozen condensate in the hint of any air movement when I plugged back in

2. removed rear panel in freezer - coils were frost free and fan was working. Drain was not clogged as I could see clear drainage into the drain pan as I was working.

3. Just for kicks I ran a defrost cycle. It kicked on as it should have (but there was no frost/ice on the coils so it didn't really matter).

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Yeah - that was a fail on my part. With all things considered, is there a motor/linkage that moves the baffles for cold air to flow down into the refrigerator part.

Or, is that something that is also dependent upon model #?

Either way, I'll try and have a look tonight and post it.

the air flow into the refrig is controlled by the little damper you turn to adjust the freezer temp. Try turning your freezer temp to off and see what you get
