Totally Unreasonable if you don't mind me saying so. The person who told you that story was thinking of an absorption unit more than likely.
Your proble is related to the defrost system of your refrigerator. There is a timer that automatically starts the defrost. It energizes the heaters that defrost the cooling coil. After the coil reaches a preset temperature a defrost terminator turns the heater off for the remaining time on the timer cycle. You could have a bad timer (stalled) which would not start the defrost. Locate the timer and turn the clutch head screw clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. The defrost should take place and will be indicated by water in the drain pan under the refrigerator. If after 25 minutes it does not restart in the cooling mode turn the screw once again to the second click and replace the timer.
If the refrigerator restarts after 18-22 minutes and defrost does not take place your problem is in the heater circuit. Open heater or thermostat (termination switch)

I had the same problem. There was tons of ice build-up in the freezer back wall which prevented the cold air from flowing into the refrigerator section. I removed all the products from the freezer, and melted the ice - even took off the back panel (lots of ice back there). It solved the problem.

you may have ice buildup in the evaporator ... i would take everything out (put food in insulated picnic baskets or someone elses refrigerater) .. then turn it off or unplug it over night with all doors open ... put down towels to catch any melting ice water .. empty ice tray ... the next day turn it back on and see if it doesnt cool properly ..it will take a few hours to stabilize ..
the problem likely was caused by a door being a little open for a long time ... that lets lots of moisture in which may freeze and accumulate on the evaporator .. the system cant recover from that unless you completely defrost it as above ... you might want to clean underneath it while you have it out of service .. vacuum/clean the coils and fan
