refrigerator not cooling, but freezer is still freezing, what could cause this
There is insulation between the freezer and refrigerator; additionally, in most refrigerators, the freezer is the only part that is mechanically cooled. The leftover cool air from the freezer is vented into the refrigerator section, and the dials that control the refrigerator's cooling levels generally just determine how much of the freezer air is allowed into the refrigerator chamber.
All of the cooling in refrigerators is normally done in the freezer compartment. A fan circulates cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator compartment to cool it. Most likely this fan has quit working.
they usually have a separate thermostat for each. One of them is prob. broken or has a short.

You can get the smell of latex paint out of a refrigerator-freezer by cleaning it out with a solution of warm water and baking soda. Place a baking tray sprinkled with baking soda on a shelf in the refrigerator and do the same in one of the freezer baskets. You will have to defrost the refrigerator-freezer first.
The Esperanto words for refrigerator and freezer are fridujo and frostujo respectively.
Bear in mind that a refrigerator continues to insulate even when it is off, so cold food inside a refrigerator can remain adequately cold for about 4 hours or even up to 6 hours, depending on the refrigerator itself, the ambient temperature, and the number of times the refrigerator door is opened. The food in the freezer section will keep longer - 1 to 2 days (if the freezer is full). See Related Links.

what may be causing my freezer to work but my refrigerator not to work
The same way your refrigerator at home does, just on a larger scale. Cooling system and air circulation.
My freezer is at the bottom. The freezer being at the top isn't universal, it was just a common design for a time.
In the old days and still in many refrigerators, the freezer was actually inside the refrigerator cabinet. It is the coldest place in the fridge where the cooling coils are located, and when cold air leaks out of it, that cold air falls down into the outer cabinet of the refrigerator. Warm air from the refrigerator portion rises up to the freezer section and gets cooled in turn. This is also why the vegetable "crispers" are located in the bottom of the fridge, I believe--the coldest air from the freezer falls there first, keeping the fruit and veggies freshest.
There could be several reasons why your refrigerator and freezer are not getting cold. When your refrigerator and freezer are not getting cold you should first refer to your users manual for troubleshooting help. If you can't find the answer there you should call a repair person to come and fix your freezer and refrigerator.
