Kenmore elite Refrigerator Side by Side - Refrigerator not getting cold

I have side by side kenmore elite refrigerator. the freezer is cold and refrigerator temperature is not getting cold.Last night i removed things on the upper compartment to make sure the cool air is flowing in. There was ice build up on the door of the freezer which i removed (Probably because of no air flowing in to refrigerator side.) I unplugged the refrigerator and turned it back. In the morning, the refrigerator is not dropping but it was not also very cold. Does it take time to get it cold? I put a hand infront of the diffuser to check if air is coming in.
i feel very little air coming through. what could be the problem? is the air diffuse not working well? do i need to defrost the diffuse? i dont see the screw to open up the diffuser. any ideas or suggestions...

Maria. This doesn't sound like a do-it-yourself project. If the freezer coils are not freezing then The problem will be a leak or compressor problem and neither can be repaired as a do-it-yourself project. A quick and simple test to see if the coils are cold enough is to wet your finger tips and touch the coils. A wet fingertip should stick to the coils if it is cold enough.
