Hello and thankyou for using this service!

I am sorry to hear about the problem you are having with your fridge.

Let's work together to find out what is wrong :)

The most likely problem you are having is the freezer is not defrosting properly.

The easiest way to find out of that is the problem is to remove the food from the freezer and open the freezer door and unplug the fridge and place a fan or hair dryer to blow into the freezer to melt off the frost that has accumulated behind the back panel. Unless you remove the panel, you will not be able to see the frost, so you will need to give it a few hours to allow it to melt off. Once you have done that , just plug it back in a check out if the food section starts getting cold. You should be able to feel the cold air coming from the upper vents. Let me know what you find.
