I would say you may have a defective fan in the freezer section. If the fan stops working in the freezer section that can happen. The only other thing that would typically cause that issue is a defrosting problem. So when it is not cooling you should remove the rear panel in the freezer section. If the evaporator is built up with excessive frost you need to defrost the frost build up with a hairdryer or steamer. Then you need to check the heater for continuity and the defrost thermostat for continuity as well, that is clipped to the evaporator. It has to be cold to test it and it should read continuity with an ohm meter as well when cold. If all that tests good you likely have a bad defrost control. If the unit is not frosted up then I would check that fan and replace it if it is bad and not running. That fan motor was super common to intermittenly fail so it may be the issue...see link below for fan motor to order.
