Condensite on the ceiling in Whirlpool Gold top-mount refrigerator gb18dk

This sounds like a seal leak. Take a dollar bill and close the door with the dollar across the strip and pull. It will be loose where the leak is.
change the seal.

Top shelf on ceiling of freezer only half freezes and the lower shelves do not freeze or get cold at all

Guessing this is a manual defrost freezer. If so, ether a restriction in sealed system, weak compressor our a leak in the sealed system.

Refrigerator not cool, freezer ok

Either the freezer continues to freeze up (most likely due to low refrigerant, due to a leak), or there is an obstruction between the freezer and the refrigerator (refrigerators get their cooling from the freezer).

Given that it works after you defrost it, I'm going with low gas. Call a professional to see if the leak can be fixed. If the unit is more than 10 years old, just get a new one.

I have a 22 yr old top freezer fridge. I took it to my cabin last year when I bought a new one for the house. However, it does not work-get cold at all. We don't leave the electricity on when we are not at...

ok Sounds like a place i would love to go but .... First, if the trip to the cabin was very bumpy chances are it sprung a leak and lost its gas charge , if this is the case , repairing it may cost more than replacement depending on the location of the leak , if the trip up to the cabin was smooth then consider this, When moving it around to load it up did you maybe move it around suddenly , and if you did this too would cause a leak specially considering  the age of the system, chances are its lost its charge and would require leak testing and repair , here in Australia anywhere up to $ 600.00

Possible leak in the sealed system. Make sure the technician pressurizes the system with nitrogen, changes drier, evacuates to 500 microns, then weighs in the correct charge.

Refrigerator wont cool properly & frost free freezer is freezing up

The compressor, the evaporator fan, and the condenser fan have to be running for it to cool properly. All the cooling takes place in the freezer and the cold air has to be pushed into the fridge to cool it, so the air ducts into the frige have to be clear or open. Only 10% of fridge problem are with the sealed system. Sealed system problems are the very expensive repairs you want to stay away from, so 90% of the time they are worth fixing.

Refrigerator temp

If it has a refrigerant leak, replace the fridge. Not many techs service r-12 refrigerant systems anymore because the cost is rediculous. The cooling problem could be associated with the leak or a defrost system failure or a fan motor failure. Almost anything that will cause this will require some parts to be replaced. I wouldn't recommend repair on a unit with gas leak.
