I opened my refrigerator yesterday, and noticed that the water bottles and several other liquid containers had froze. I turned the setting down to the factory setting (3) and then checked it again today after about 24 hours. Now even more things are frozen, and it is not getting any warmer. I put a thermometer inside and it currently reads at 31 degrees F. Cold air is still blowing in from the vent. I notice no change to the freezer side. The model is a Frigidaire FRS23H5ASB. It is 5 years old.

You have to find out why the defrost timer did not turn on the mullion strip heaters first. Simply turning the thermostat off for a few hours will melt the ice build up without having to disassemble the refrigerator. Water may leak out on the floor from the ice build up but it will stop soon enough. Back to the defrost timer. It sounds like it is not working or if it is then there are some open heat elements where the ice has built up. The timer is usually located behind the toe grille at the bottom of the frige. Your location may be different, so go online with your model number and look up the exact location.
sounds like it froze up, is the fan in the freezer running? remove everything from the freezer and let it thaw out wait till its warm to the touch, and check the water pan underneath might run over then plug it up again and watch the fan, it must run or it will freeze up again might need oil or just turn it a few times to get it going
As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or
refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are
also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or
buzzing then check out the last two tips.
If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…
Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start
trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling
a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
I had the same problem. Drove me crazy and cost me about 5 filters at $50 a pop until I found the solultion. Water in the Sears/LG refrigerator that I have (french door trio) goes through the filter then into a container on the left front door of the refrigerator. That container stores the water so it can get cold and it also equalizes the flows in the system so that when you put your glass under the spigot the flow is steady and the water is cold. Problem is .... this tank can build up with algae/slime/foul tasting stuff. Since it is after the filter, no matter how many times you change the filter it will have no impact on the water in this container. That is why if you use the water spigot a lot, the water seems to get a little better (as the tank water gets diluted) but as soon as you don't use it for several hours or more, back comes the smelly water again. Solution for me was to remove the plastic panel on the inside of the left front door and clean the plastic bottle. It is pretty easy to remove with 2 screws and easy to pull off the hoses. I filled is with a little clorox and water and swished it around for several minutes then drained and rinsed it. Then I filled it again with a little clorox (like an ounce or two max) and put the container back into the fridge. Once in the fridge, I ran fridge water through the front water dispenser for about a gallon or so. This flushed out the chlorine in the plastic container as well as the lines between the container and the spigot. After about a half hour of work, my great tasting water in the fridge is back again. I've checked the taste on this water for several weeks now and no plastic/odor/bad tasting water any more. Hope this helps.
