Setting the control to 9 may make the freezer ice up too much to work right. You can start with a manual defrost. That takes a long time, because the ice is below the freezer liner, stuck in the coils. You'll have to move your food elsewhere, like a cooler. I always take the freezer apart to get at the coils, use a hair dryer to melt the ice. Then you can check the defrost coil, it's like a toaster element. After all that, check the defrost timer too. It's usually down by the compressor area, about the size of a cell phone. It has a small dial on it that only turns one way. Mark it when the fridge is on with whiteout to see if it moves. It moves real slowly, so you will have to wait a half hour or so.
One way to speed up a defrost is to turn the dial on the defrost timer until it clicks. Then the compressor will turn off and the defrost coil will turn on. The freezer fan should be spinning. Feel the output from the freezer fan- anything? If no flow, you're iced up. Keep checking for flow, eventually it should get cold. When you get good airflow, and maybe it's not so cold anymore, you might be defrosted without having to take the whole thing apart. You may have to turn the dial more than once, if the compressor comes back on before you're defrosted. You can help the defrost with your hair dryer thru the vents in the front of the freezer, but not too hot, you don't want to melt any plastic.

to possible reason.
1. Under charge, your refrigerant gas is not enough to accumulate or produce ice, reason possible leak along the pipe line all the way to the back near the compressor (signs: oily part)
cause: Vibration or use of sharp hard object in removing frozen food or ice
2. Lost Compression (Motor compressor) failure to produce enough pressure to accumulate ice.
cause:un stable power distribution or flactuatuion of electric current
or old age of the compressor

There are several different things that could make your refrigerator not cool properly.
I have compiled a list of things that you should check out and how to check them ok
It's not cool If the refrigerator isn't cool, you need to answer some questions, then see if the compressor is running. First, answer these questions: Is the refrigerator completely dead? If so, Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? If not, reset it. Next, see if the compressor motor is running The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help. If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these: The compressor The Thermostat The overload, relay, or capacitor The defrost timer The condenser fan motor Cooling is poor For an overall understanding of how refrigerators should work, read about refrigerators in the How Things Work section of our website. A refrigerator or freezer that is cooling, but cooling poorly, may have a problem in one of several areas: Evaporator coils Condenser Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt.
