I suspect the refrigerant charge is low. If it is less than 5 years old, it may be under warranty. How old is the refrigerator?

Over 5. I bought it used

Shoot, that is not good. This type of repair requires very specialized tools and training and is expensive to have professionally repaired. You could expect it to cost about $400 + parts to complete this repair.
