What causes the air flow from the freezer to the fridge to slow down?

This is a side by side model 106.50592003 and the fridge was cooling at 50 - 60 degrees. I unplugged it for 5 minutes to reset it but no change. I then unplugged it for 24 hours and still no change. I noticed that the airflow from the freezer to the fridge increased when I opened the freezer door, indicating the vent that allows air to flow to the freezer is obstructed. I keep a wire grate to prevent food items from blocking that vent and have defrosted the unit for 24 hours. What else could be clogging the pathway?
