ge refrigerator model gts22wcp The freezer seems to be working

Resolved Question:

ge refrigerator model gts22wcp

The freezer seems to be working fine but the temperature in the refrigerator is 52 degrees. I vacuumed the coils, both compressor fan and freezer fan are working properly, and I defrosted it for 2 1/2 hours.

Still the temp in the fridge is still 52.

What can be wrong?
