That's a typical sign of the defrost cycle not working and ice is building up on the coils. That prevents proper air flow of cold air around the compartments. As ice builds up you get less air flow and things warm up soooo you turn up the cold which causes more ice to build up and even less air flow soooo you turn up the cold. See where I'm going with this? You'll have to check your defrost timer, defrost t-stat and even the heat element. Look in your owners manual or online for diagrams of where the parts are located on your older unit, then go from there.

You have an issue with the defrost system, either the timer, thermostat or heating element. Probably the defrost timer refer to the manual to find it. If you don't have the manual check the makers web site for a parts breakdown. You should be able to put it into defrost manually by turning the knob and see if that helps. You may need to do this sevral times as it only stays in defrost for a little over twnety minutes and run cycle for 6,8 or ten hours. If the ice build up is heavy then twenty minutes may not do the trick thus the need for repated defrost cycles. If it does the trick replace the timer. If not check the thermostat and heater element.
