Sounds like the coolant line into the fridg compartment is pluged up. A classic fix is to remove the fridge and turn it upside down and back a few times for a few days. This did work for me with a 2 door thay was pluged in both compartments. It may not last forever but does work now.

First sign of imminent death of the cooling unit. The "shake, rattle and roll" technique didn't work for me but a rebuilt cooling unit (~$400) has been running for about 4 years now...
