I suspect you have an issue with the sensor that monitors the temperature in the freezer. As it cools, does the display change as the temperature drops?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Hello Kelly,Yes, the temperature does go down and the display does as well.Many Thanks,Sam.

So the sensors are working, that would indicate an issue with the electronics. How long have you left it unplugged for? If less than 30 minutes, can you unplug it again for at least 30 minutes and see what happens?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Hello, yes I have left it unplugged several times over a week long. Also the fridge becomes warm as well but the temp light doesn't seem to flash for the fridge.

I believe the main controller will need to be replaced and is available below.
