Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you.
Hi, the only thing left would be a sealed system issue or air flow issue. Check the damper inside the refrigerator section. You should feel air flow into the refrigerator from the freezer.
Take the back panel out of the freezer and look at the evaporator. The evaporator is the coil that looks like a radiator. The part below the fan in the freezer. When the compressor is running the evaporator should have 1/16 frost from top to bottom. I'm guessing you have a half frosted evaporator or just a small frost ball in the corner?
