Hello, this is Dave. Sorry to hear you are having problems. What is happening is cause when the refrigerator can't easily get rid of the heat from inside. Most times it is when the fan underneath is not running. You will need to pull out the refrigerator and take off the lower back panel. It could be a mouse etc. blocking the fan blade. Let me know what you find and if you need further help.

Are you still there? Do you still need help?
