kenmore 253.5694360 -- fridge temperature fluctuations

I noticed recently that is seems the fridge temperature is fluctuating. I purchased a thermometer and tested the freezer and it is constant usually at 0 or a little below. If I put the thermometer up near the vent where the air flows from the freezer it's at 20 or below. Sometimes the temperature in the fridge is between 30 and if I open the door for about 20-30 seconds the temperature rises quickly to sometimes 60. It takes a while for the temperature to drop back down.

I lowered the temperature of the fridge and it is cooling better but I'm wondering if that is not efficient. How can I test to be sure my fridge is operating properly?
