    The fridge section is not cooling the freezer is ok.
    Its only two years old, are there any common causes I could look for.

    The fridge in combined fridge/freezers normally pulls cold air up from the freezer with a fan, the fridge thermostat will control this fan.
    A warm fridge is often caused by the evaporator in the freezer icing up and restricting the airflow into the fridge compartment.
    De-ice the freezer thoroughly and you should have a cheap fix.
