Hi, is the freezer fan running? Do you see frost on the back wall of freezer ?

You have a defrost problem, and need to get rid of the frost. The most likely problem for your unit is the defrost thermostat, located on the evaporator. You will need to remove back panel in the freezer section and replace the thermostat. The thermostat is a round disk with two wires on it, it is on the upper right corner of the evaporator.
