Hi no there is frost on back of fridge or freezer
Hello , I would assume there is NO frost on both freezer and fridge. If this is the case, then I would say you could have a very small leak in the sealed system. You could be loosing gas one month ago when the first warning light came on but you did not take care of it since the freezer is still functioning. It could just be the fridge which is starting to loose its cooling ability so you would not notice it right away.
After a month of slow leak, a lot of gas could have come out and now it started to take an effect on the freezer as well. The freezer is now no longer cooling very well because of lack of gas. This would explain the food getting thaw a little bit. And turning the thermostat would really not make any difference at all any more since it is no longer cooling.
But with this kind of problem, I am afraid it is not a DIY. If it is a gas problem, only professionals can handle the refrigerant. With out a license, you can not buy refrigerant gas, so you can not do it yourself. Please seek a professional and ask for quotations on how much it will cost because with this kind of problem, it is a little bit expensive to repair so some customers would just replace their unit.
