Is ice built up on the entire coil by that fan in the freezer?
Back behind that panel in the freezer....
Ah, yes, perfect! Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!
There is a component in the defrost circuit that has failed. Back behind that cover, the evaporator coil is completely frozen up and it is blocking the air flow. So, you will need to either remove that panel and thaw the coil with a hair dryer or leave the doors open and the refrigerator unplugged for 24 hours. Once it is thawed, it will start cooling again. It is likely that the defrost thermostat is faulty but if you have a meter, we can test it!
Was that fan running or did you have to manually turn it? That frost was not as bad as it looked in the first picture.
