Probably the defrost element has failed, ice & frost will continue to build up & it's ability to cool will deminish over time. Has to be checked & possibly replaced.

SOURCE: Condenser fan runs all the time is this common?

How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php





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 In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.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.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

SOURCE: Mullion between freezer and refrigerator is extremely hot.

They rarely use 'heaters' anymore. If there is a heater there will be somthing like a 'energy saver' option to turn it off. More likely it is a mullion loop that is part of the sealed system tubing. The harder the frige works the hotter that area will be. So if the inside temp rises so will the temperature of the mullion. Start by checking your frige and freezer temperatures with a thermometer. The freezer should be between 5-10 deg ABOVE zero and the frige should be about 35 or 36 deg. Also check that the condenser is not dirty. The condenser is the coils that are usually underneath the frige. They should be cleaned at least annually. Also while you're under there make sure the condenser fan is running. You should feel a little air movement and possibly hear it running from the front under the doors. If it's not running you'll need to find out why, but would usually be a problem with the motor. Also there was a carboard panel on the back at the bottom of the frige from the factory, that panel HAS to be in place to direct air across the condenser and not back behind the frige.

SOURCE: freezer & refrigerator not getting

Ok, I'll give quick solution for you. Tell your problems, I can confirm the problem actually comes from the freezer, due to excessive clotting in the freezer, precisely at the cavity insulation or air ducts from the freezer to lower the freezing container is covered by ice. so that the cooling in the lower container is not maximal.
How to repair:

If you understand and know where the refrigerator TIMER. you can set the timer to the defrost function. sign is the compressor will stop when the timer is set to defrost, the ice melting process by a part called HEATER , will occur in the Freezer.

If you do not understand, the easiest way is, Unplug your refrigerator electric outlet and allow you to not use the fridge for a while until you confirm yourself all the ice frozen in the freezer had melted. can be seen from a water reservoir that is located under your refrigerator. usually a tray that can be withdrawn. Ok then, hopefully this solution can help you.

You have a defective defrosting strip. A hearing element that warms the side of the fridge to melt ice that collects. Your fridge is dangerous to operate. You have a possible short in the defrost system that can electrocute you. You should unplug immediately. I am SERIOUS.

Is it normal for the outsides to get very hot


No. If you feel the sides getting hot, it usually means that the ref. isn't cold enough inside. There us either an electric heater or a pass of the hot gas from the compressor around the edges of the doors as well as the mullion between them. If they feel hot, it's too warm inside.... Check the ice cream: It's the 1st to go.

That heat strip is in all refrigerators that don't want condensation rusting them out. It's called a mullion heater and there are several of them around the door.

Find the defrost timer and advance it a few clicks and the compressor should come on. If it doesn't let us know what happened.

And if your fridge has an Economy switch, it is there so you can turn the mullion heaters off.

Thanks for listing the complete model number.
Look behind your refrigerator for a tube which comes out at about the level of the top of the fresh foods section, right in the middle, and runs down to the compressor area. Remove the tube, clean it out, clean out any blockages you see in the hole you can now see in the back of the refrig, then replace the drain. It looks like your model has exterior condenser coils on the back. The tube is behind those coils, comming right out of the back wall.
Any blockage / restriction in this drain will cause the defrost water to stay inside the freezer and eventually find it's way into the refrigerator section. (after builing up enough ice to cause the fan blade to hit on it, making alot of noise, or even possibly block the fan blade from turning inside the freezer) If you don't want to dissmantle the entire floor of the freezer to manually defrost the entire refrigerator, you may have to unplug the refrig for an extended time to let it defrost itself. This would take up to several days. It is also possible to speed this up by manually putting your refrigerator into a defrost cycle, although one defrost cycle would most likely not be enough to completely defrost your refrigerator at this time anyway. (when I repair these, I put them in manual defrost and dissassemble to fully melt all the frost and ice off the coils, which are located in the floor of the freezer section of your model) (the defrost control is located at the back center top of the refrigerator section, and has a plastic slotted peg which can be SLOWLY turned with a slot blade screwdriver until it clicks once, resulting in the refrigerator stopping while it turns on the defrost system. It will advance out of defrost in about a half hour. Refrig must be plugged in and turned on for defrost to work.)
Hope that is enough of a suggestion for you.
