The problem is with the defrosting system. Likely one of three components: the defrost timer, the defrost thermostat, or the defrost heating element. In my case, it was the thermostat. But first check out the timer since it is easily accessible under the front of the freezer. A red shaft sticks out. It has a notch in it, so make a mark on the housing, lined up with the notch, and check over a few hours to make sure it is turning. If not, you need to replace it. If it turns OK, turn off the power and remove it. Check the resistance between contacts 1-4 while rotating the shaft manually. It should read zero ohms for most of the rotation, then be an open circuit for the rest of the rotation. Now check the resistance between contacts 1-2 during rotation. Most of the rotation, it should be an open circuit, then zero ohms for a small part of the rotation. If it fails this test, replace it. If it passes, then the problem is most likely the thermostat. You need to turn off the power and remove the drawers and drawer rails of the freezer, then remove the back panel. Defrost, if you haven't done that already, and remove the thermostat. You can test it (see below), but I would suggest just ordering a new one and replacing since this is likely the culprit if the defrost timer is OK. If you want to test it, check its resistance at room temp (should be an open circuit), then stick in a a working freezer for an hour or so, and test it immediately after pulling it out of the freezer (now should have very little resistance). If it is an open circuit when cold, no power can get to the defrost heating element! GOOD LUCK

If the evaporator fan is not running. The fan itself could be faulty or the door operated light/fan switch could be faulty.
If the evaporator fan is running. The fridge is not defrosting and ice has built up on the evaporator and the air is not circulating properly into the fridge compartment. The fan circulates cold air into the fridge and back through the fridge control which is normally just an adjustable flap which allows more or less cold into the fridge depending on the setting. If the fridge is not defrosting, the defrost timer could be faulty or heater element could be blown.
