Ice forming in the top freezer, leaks in the
Sounds like the defrost circuit of your fridge has failed. If you remove the back panel of the freezer compartment, you will see the evap coil encased with ice. Normally the defrost circuit will turn off the compressor and turn on a heater to warm the coil to about 45 degrees to melt any frost build up. After about 40 minutes the compressor will kick back in to keep your fridge cool again.
The typical failures are that the defrost heater burns out. If you have an older fridge, the defrost timer fails to advance, causing the fridge to stay in cooling or defrost mode.

If your coils are froze up, this could be temperature sensor I believe or your defrost valve, usually back in the fridge is your coils if they are frozen solid you need to unplug refrigerator freezer let it thaw out, you will have lots of water so get towels and stuff to soak up your water once it is thawed,plug frigerator freezer back in give it time to cool back down if the refrigerator side is cool now then I would say defrost valve or temperature sensor will need replaced there also should be a fan that blows the cold air into your refrigerator,, was it run for about a day or so if it starts freezing up again that's more proof defrost valves not working
