Refrig side not very cold (Sears/Whirlpool) Side by side 106.52754100

MisterEd:
Freezer is fine (0 degress to -3 degrees) but refrigerator side never gets very cold.  Stays around 40-45 even overnight even when set at coldest temp. 

Is this normal?  Drinks just never seem very cold.

I would check that you have air flow thru the damper vent. If not that part could be faulty, or the thermistor that controls it. May even be adaptive board. Other than that, its possible that your fresh food light is staying on. That will cause a problem with heat. Find your tech sheet, it will help you troubleshoot.

MisterEd:
Thank you very much.  Not sure if it is worth investing any more money in this thing especially not knowing which of the 2 parts is the problem (if it's even either of them).  The Thermistor might be worth a shot but I'd hate to buy the other part and not have it be the problem.

I had one with the refrigerator door ajar and ice had formed over the damper,froze it shut. Hair dryer and solved it.

Bailey:
I did a call yesterday with same problem. They had a tall plastic container sitting up against the louvers where the air comes out.
