Fridge main compartment not cooling, recommended temperature 37F but it stays at room temp, deli drawer cools down to 32F so works as intended, freezer works like a champ. Ohm test confirms compressor works (9 Ohms), it vibrates and runs, fans spin, mother board outputs 5 volts / 120 volts to inverter so by elimination I replaced the inverter with a new unit but to no avail.

The original inverter labes says 150 Hz, my new inverter says 130 Hz but I bought the replacemant part so I don;t think this is the issue.

If the freezer is working the compressor is working.

Look for ice build-up on the refrigerator evaporator and check to see if the refrigerator fan is running. (Note the door might have to be shut for the fan to run).

The refrigerator evaporator is located behind the drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator.

There is also a 3 way valve that may not be letting refrigerant to flow to the refrigerator evaporator but check the other things first
