Having an issue with cooling.  The freezer compartment is fine, ice freezes no issues.  The cold foods compartment temperature is warm and will not come down below 45.  Any thoughts or previous issues with this model?

1st thing to check is in freezer, make sure on back wall, there is no frost buildup.small amount can cause temp. change in f/f section.   
 
2nd. thing , make sure evap. fan if blowing air down to your f/f section.

If the freezer checks good,maybe  an airflow problem, check your dampers make sure they are open, also make sure your settings for your freezer and t-stat are in the middle setting and then give it 24hrs, and then check your temp.
