Most likely your having a defrost issue in your freezer so it's not able to push air into the refrigerator. To check, remove everything out of your freezer. Then take the lower back panel off inside your freezer. If there is a lot of frost then thaw it out with a hairdryer. That will get your unit working again for about 2 weeks, but if you want the problem to stay gone you will need to replace the defrost heaters which are located under the silver coils and they look like long tubular glass much like anlight bulb.

Ok then your vent is blocked somewhere. All the air that comes into the refrigerator comes in from the top right corner of the freezer. Take the panels off and see if you can find where the blockage is. My guess would be the top right corner in your freezer has a little frost build up.
