Typical freezer works, refrig doesn't. I've vacuumed the coils, there is no frost in the freezer. What next?

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp .
Your damper control is part 18

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Thank you, I wasn't aware of that damper. It does work so it must be frozen somewhere. I have found NO ice. Maybe its in the vent?
