Help please! I have a Whirlpool Model ET8WTEXVQ01 and recently noticed that the temp in my refrigerator is barely cold, with milk and other perishables spoiling rather quickly. My kneejerk reaction was to turn up the single temp control to max because even though my freezer was still cold, it didn't seem to be as cold as usual. This did not help the frig compartment at all. After Googling the problem I came across this site (wonderful, by the way) and read through the responses to others with similar problems. After that, I did the standard checks:

- Compressor and rear fan working fine
- No frost on the rear freezer panel
- Have noticed that freezer does go through defrost cycle (compartment surfaces get warm to the touch periodically)

My amateur diagnosis with help from this forum: cold air not making it to frig for whatever reason. My guess would have been a faulty damper, but I can't seem to locate such a part on the spec sheet for my model, unless I'm overlooking it.

I haven't opened the rear freezer panel yet because I don't really have an alternative place to keep my frozen foods, so I wanted to know exactly what I would be looking for once I get in to save time. Thanks!
