Fridge not keeping up

I have a for hurricane 35c. it seems like my fridge is unable to keep up the set temperature. The freezer works great but the fridge always stays warm. We try to minimize the frequency of door opening to help but it's still is fairly warm in there. My fridge is only powered electrically. Is this typical? I am assuming that if the freezer is working correctly and the fridge light is on that everything is still working properly as far as breaker & fuses, Etc. Anyway I just wanted to reach out and make sure I was not forgetting something...

Our fridge a Whirlpool model WRS325SDHW side by side. At the top of the fridge is the control center with controls for freezer and fridge. There is only one cooling unit and it is for the freezer; however, the thermostat controlling the cooling unit is in the fridge. Instructions say to set the fridge temperature at the mid point and the freezer to the mid-point for 24 hours. After that time, adjust the temp on the fridge to maintain 35-39 degrees. After the fridge temp has stabilized, adjust the freezer control to the desired temp. For us, the fridge is on 3.5 (mid-point) and the freezer is on 1 (max). Also make sure the fridge door is sealing properly.

Slide a dollar bill around the fridge seal and be sure it is not letting air in

a small fan in the fridge near the freeze may help as well

There are a bunch of other things if you need further help
