Sounds like a defrost problem or a plugged drain... to get it to work temporary defrost
the freezer. Unplug the refrigerator, open the door and get a blow
dryer and warm up the freezer. wait until the water stop dripping out
or about 12 to 24 hours and then you can plug it back in . it will work
for 2 to 3 weeks.
To unplug the drain.defrost the freezer .remove the back cover. Use a pipe cleaner to clear the drain. pour a few cups of hot water down the drain.
The defrost systems is:
TIMER-DEFROST (or may have a ADC)
Start with the timer. (if it has a ADC it will not apply) It is just under the front kick plate. there is a knob you can turn it slowly.until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...
You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.

You will be needing a scratch be gone kit.
Assess the damage. Determine if this is a deep scratch or a surface scratch, by running your finger across it. If you can actually feel the indentation, you have a deep scratch, gouge or ding. With clamps, carefully hold a small piece of dry ice over the gouged area. Hopefully,it will pop out, and not be as noticeable. Then you can treat it in the same way other scratched areas are treated in the steps below.
Use an abrasive pad from the Scratch-B-Gone kit to repair scuffs, light scratches and even deep scratches. The kit has 4 different abrasive pads and instructions to tell you which one to use depending on the severity of the scratches and scuffs. Otherwise, go to an automotive shop and buy different fine grades of sandpaper.
Apply a small amount of Ultra Shine from the Scratch-B-Gone kit onto the appropriate abrasive pad. Or use an automotive rubbing compound on the sandpaper.
Begin rubbing the damaged area of the satin in the direction of the grain covering over about a 5-inch area at a time. Slide the pad backward and forward increasing pressure as needed until you see the scratch is disappearing.
Repeat this process until the scratch is removed and the surface is restored. For a deeper scratch, dry rub the area with the coarse pad, and wipe area off with a microfiber cloth to make sure the scratch is gone.
Blend the metal surfaces by using the finest grade sandpaper or abrasive pad with the rubbing compound or Ultra Shine and gradually increase the area around the original damage to about three times the original scratched area. Be sure to go with the existing grain of the material so you don't create crosshatching.

Spraying a good lubricant on the hinge pins should solve your problem. Sprays like WD-40 shouldn't be used because they may come in contact with your food.
I suggest you call around to your local appliance parts houses to see which one's carry a "food compatable" spray.
It's safe to use around food and can be saved for future use. Most service techs I know carry it with them in the service truck to use when needed.
