Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The drastic temperature difference is definitely related to air flow. If the fan is not running, that is the problem., If the fan is running, you may have a frozen coil. I would allow a full defrost for 24 hours with both doors open and see what happens when plugged back in.
