Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
What your seeing is the result of an automatic defrosting problem. One of three things has failed
1. Defrost Control (most common failure)
2. Defrost Heating Element or
3. Defrost Thermostat
A refrigerator must automatically defrost 2 to 3 times a day or you will see the symptoms you are experiencing now. You can do a manual defrost by unplugging the unit and direct an external fan into the freexer compartment for just over 2 hours to get the temps down again. The only thing is after about 2 days the ice build up gets to the point that your freezer temps start warming up again. The correct remedy is to repair the automatic defrosting system.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
