Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
If unplugging the refrigerator for 24 hours fixes the issue, it sounds like you likely have a problem with the refrigerator not defrosting properly. The first thing I'd do is pull the refrigerator out, remove the lower back access panel, and clean the condenser coils next to the fan because if they are clogged with lint and dust then the compressor can overheat over time and that can cause this scenario also. Then just plug the unit back in and wait to see if the issue comes back. If it does come back, remove the entire back panel INSIDE the freezer. There is a white plastic bullet about 1" long clipped onto the top of the silver coils. This is your defrost thermistor sensor. It only costs about $10. If the coils are completely packed with frost and ice, you'll want to thaw them out with a hair dryer and replace this sensor because it's preventing the air from circulating properly.
