Kenmore model 57029 side-by-side refrigerator not working

We have a Kenmore model 57029 side-by-side refrigerator that is only a year old. The freezer works great, but the refrigerator has stopped working and is not cooling? We have tried turning it on an off, the fan appears to be working, and you hear it running periodically. Do you know what the problem would be? Thank you!

Side by side kenmore refrigerator 14 years old leaks water under left front


That coulds be a defrost drain blockage or the coupling to the water dispenser is loose. Remove the kick plate to see if the water is dripping from water line or look into freezer to see if water is draining from rear panel in freezer. Let me know what you see and I will be able to tell you what you need to. Sea Breeze
