Hi What you need to do is empty the freezer and from there remove the back panel in the freezer. Now the screws are torx screws which are star shapped. Once the panel is removed behind there you will see the evaporator and the fan above it.If the evaporator is blocked with ice you need to use a hairdryer and fully melt all the ice. Then make sure the fan is free from ice a the ice can form in there and stop the air flow up to the fridge section. Once defrosted retry it and the fridge should get back to normal from there. If you need anymore info just get back to me. Regards
