Thanks for your question.
Check the seal on the unit to make sure it is not sucking in warm air from the room. If it is you would get a light fluffy frost all over the freezer. If that is ok you may have a unit that has a defrost issue. If it is all frosted up air can not be blown down into the refrigerator due to the frosting. If that is the case you need to defrost the unit and check the heater and defrost thermostat to see if one of them is burned out using an ohm meter.
