The refrigerator cools to 34 degrees, but the bottom freezer is above 50 degrees. I put thermometers in them and they agree with the readings on the display.

Is there a manual that shows how to do diagnostics?

I couldn't locate the service manual for this model.

I'd first make sure the freezer(evaporator) fan motor is running, if so then remove the back panel inside the freezer and look at the frost pattern of the evaporator coil, normal would be a thin layer of frost on ALL the coils from top to bottom. If not you have a sealed system problem.

My boss sold the non-working refrigerator to a customer for $20.00. So I no longer have it.
