Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you.

So first off lets start with the condenser coils have you inspected to see if they are frozen. They should be located behind the wall inside of the freezer. You can remove the panel to inspect the coils.

The refrigerator is unplugged and pulled away from the wall for the last 24 hours so if they were frozen, they aren't now.

I do not believe that is the problem as we had significant "melting" prior to me unplugging the unit. Is it worth plugging back in and seeing if the 24 hour thaw solved the problem?
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 9 months ago.

It may be yes. My apologies for not seeing that the unit had been unplugged for 24 hrs. So if the condenser coils are not the problem. We need to plug it back in to make sure the fan above the condenser coils is running.
