Hmm, okay. Are you able to remove the rear panel from inside the freezer to inspect the evaporator coil?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Ok removed

Is the entire coil covered in frost or just a small portion?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
The bottom portion is frosted

That is not good, it means the refrigerator has a leak in the sealed refrigeration system. This is not a repair you will be able to complete, it requires specialized training and equipment. You can expect a cost of about $350-400 + parts to have it professionally repaired.
