My refrigerator isn't as cold today. Yesterday I had a can blow up too close to that cooling dispenser had to wipe around the bottom by that water dispenser plastic tubing. Woke up today and it seems to be not too cool. The freezer works good but today the fridge side is 50 degrees. The top blower vent does seem to barely blow an my window AC unit blows colder. Any idea why a fridge side won't get as cold as it should. It's a Kenmore

Could be various, fan or some electronic relay thing or maybe the coils are iced up. We had an issue similar and the coils were iced over.

Thawing them solved it but again could be something else

106 54594400 it's a 2004-05 model.are the coils the ones underneath or behind a rear cover? I vacuumed a bunch of dust under the bottom cover months back.it blows cool out of vent seems to have chilled a little after turning it up to 6 vs the 4 it's been at for years.

The coils you dust off are under the refrigerator.
The coils that might get frosted or iced up are in the freezer behind the false back wall, this is the evaporator. You can also take a picture of the frost pattern of the evaporator coils and post it here.
Some frosted and some bare is an system issue frown
