I have a Fisher and Paykel E442B upside down, which is a very similar model, and I just fixed the same problem (temperature was around -4C even though I set the fridge temperature as warm as possible).
The cause of my problem was excessive ice build up on the side of the evaporator coil (which is in the back of the freezer compartment behind the rear plastic panel). I had the same problem around a year or so ago, so I expect it to be a regular occurence. To defrost the coil, I removed all the drawers in the freezer, and the plastic insert by pulling out the bottom of the panel out and rotating it upwards until it released at the top. There are a couple of snap-in tabs holding the panel in, so with a bit of pulling they released. The tabs are either side of the slot at the bottom of the panel.
I then supported the panel horizontally on the top shelf so that I didn't have to disconnect the thermostat wire and the circulating fan wire.
With a small fan heater set on low, aimed roughly at the ice buildup on the left hand side of the evaporator coil, I defrosted the ice built up. This took around 2 hours or so. Then put it all back together and it worked fine.
I'm not sure why the ice build up on the side caused the problem, but presumably it interferes with the proper flow of cold air to the fridge compartment.
If you don't seem to have ice build up like I did, then it could be a thermostat problem, or a fan problem (a symptom of which would be fridge being colder at the bottom than at the top).

I bought this nice looking fridge 4 years ago and after 18 months the fridge part was warm and all the food had to be thrown away. The freezer part was still working.
I called the store that I bought it from and they told me to call a recommended service company. When I called they said that there was a common problem with the fan breaking down. (The fan is what makes the fridge cool as it blows the cold air from the freezer up to the fridge).
They did not have the part in stock and said it would take 6 weeks to order it from New Zealand!!!
I called the store back and had made a commotion so they replaced the fridge with a new one.
Now after two and a half years the same thing has happened again. I called the store and asked if this was a design flaw and did they have a recall on them, but the person I spoke to claimed that they have sold very many of these models and no one else has the same problem.
I am 65 years old and have had quite few refridgerators and none of them has ever broken down at all. I believe that the same problem of the fan breaking again is a design flaw and should be fixed by the manufacturer.
It seems like many other people have the same costly repair problem with these models. I would never buy Fisher & Paykal again!!!

Very possible the door was accidently left open for a period of time. When that happens, moisture latches on to different areas which inturn creates ice build up. In short, do a good defrost and then restart freezer again.
