See if cold air is coming out of the air diffuser top-back freezer side of fridge. A common problem is a bad air diffuser assembly. Sometimes it may freeze closed and break when it tries to cycle. The freezer usually works fine.

Defrost the fridge, take everything out of freezer and turn off for at least a day, check the drain is clear after defrosted and try again, if it happens again you may need a new defrost heater of timer.

you have a defrost problem, could be bad adaptive defrost board,t-stat heater,when you open freezer door listen for fan if fan is blowing check the t-stat,look at it and see if it has a buldge on it,sometime you can see this and tell it's bad,you'll need a meter to read out the heater and other parts to see whats bad,might be a good idea to call a tech to do this,when you find problem you have to melt everything out again

Step one. Remove the light guard in the fresh food section and where the main thermostat is located is a slot where you can insert a screwdriver. This is where the timer is. With the machine running, turn the shaft clockwise until the machine shuts off. Wait 35 minutes. If the machine comes back on, the timer is o.k. if not replace it.
If the timer is o.k move over to the freezer side. With the machine having been on for at least 6 hours remove the rear panel.
Inspect the cooling coil closely. It should have a frost coating from bottom to top. If the top coils are clean, you have developed a freon leak and have a serious problem.
If the coil is active top to bottom, then you will need to replace the dual glass defrost heaters and the defrost thermostat. One or the other may still be good at the time but it isn't worth the hassle to go into the system twice.
Installing them is tedious but doable. Take your time and keep track of how it comes apart. It's a monkey see monkey do job.
Careful on pulling the new wires.
P.S.The top coils wil not be as heavily frosted as the bottom ones but must have an active coating of frost on them.
