Ice cannot be produced at that temperature you're going to have to find out by taking the drawer out removal of the rear wall of the freezer and see if the evaporator is freezing over or is the condensate drain opening is blocked. Your model has dual evaporators and we need to see if your evaporator in the freezer is defrosting properly or if for some reason the defrost drain is blocked causing moisture to cover the fan causing a cooling problem.

could be a faulty transducer. In the freezer a device called a transducer reports the temperature is too cold to the defrosting cycle. The defrosting cycle should then kick in and a heater at the bottom of the fridge evaporates the water. If the transducer is faulty the defrost doesn't happen and ice builds up on the back of the freezer and migrates down the fridge.
Unfortunately on one of my fridges a major part was faulty which caused the fridge to freeze the food and I had to buy a new fridge as it was beyond ecconomical repair according to the appliance repair man.
I hope for you it is just a tranducer but you may need to turn off the fridge and melt the ice so the appliance man can test it. Advise asking appliance repair company if the turning off is required and how much ice they need to have to test the transducer before they come out and look at your fridge.
you most likely have ice build up in your evaporator or collection tray. a full defrost should fix this. just unplug the fridge until it is fully defrosted.
Wiki has good instruction on how to defrost a freezer; http://www.wikihow.com/Defrost-a-Freezer
once you have it defrosted, adjust the temperature to a mid low level for 24 hours then adjust to needed freezer fridge temperature (advise to get a thermomitor to monitor your fridge and freezer is not to high as this could freeze the lines again and your back to square one.
good luck. (remember to eat or store your perishables properly so you dont loss money on your food etc spoiling.
Hello there: first make sure that the back of the unit is clear of any dirt or obstructions also make sure that the food is not stacked up so high that the air cannot circulate also you may want to check the temperature setting if the unit does not respond to a lower setting your refrigerant level may be low or than you will have to have the temperature controle thermistor serviced or replaced
hi the fridge requires cold air from the freezer,the air cant get in there due to ice blockage,defrost appliance for min 36hrs and then once the appliance reaches approx -12o the fridge should start to go cold
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper)
between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through
it.There is a flap you adjust with the
fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the
fridge temp ..
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer
are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of
cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In
most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.
If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
