Your unit is responding correctly when you change a temperature the set temp will show for a few seconds and then the display will go back to ACTUAL temp reading.

But that does not sound like it is your issue.

If you open the freezer door look on the rear interior panel do you see any frost or ice on the rear interior wall panel?

And do you hear the freezer Evaporator fan running?
