Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Remove everything out of the freezer itself. I know the refrigerator section is the one you're having a problem with, but the refrigerator just cools by stealing air from the freezer. Remove the back panel inside the freezer and look to make sure the fan is running. If so, then look at the silver coils below the fan. If the coils are frosted up heavily, you'll need to use a hair dryer and thaw them out because they're preventing air from circulating correctly.
