Whirlpool Fridge/Freezer Frost Free won't cool on left side

My freezer is cold. The refrigerator won't cool on the left side. Can't feel air come out on that side. It comes out on the right side. 57 degrees in fridge. I have unplugged it and tried to defrost it thinking that is the problem. I read on here to take off the inside back panel in freezer. Gonna try it. It was made in 08. So its pretty new. No ice maker connected. No water in drip tray. Help

Answer this question I have this problem too

Damper Control Assembly

If the freezer is cold but refrigerator is warm the air damper control might be stuck closed or broken. The air damper control is either an automatic or manually operated door which opens and closes to let more or less cold air into the refrigerator compartment. If it doesn't open properly it won't let enough cold air into the refrigerator. If the evaporator fan is running, the damper door is open and no air is coming out. The evaporator may be frosted up caused by a defrost problem.
