Question about Refrigerators
Unit is only a 5 years old and has an on and off problem with the temp of the fridge side rising - 60 degrees while the freezer side is at 1-2 degrees. If I unplug the unit for a day or so it will work fine for 6 months and them does it again. Puzzling.
The problem could be an intermittently defective temperature control.

Testimonial: "Seems this comfirms what I am hearing. sounds like I should change the thermostate and go from there. Thank you. "
could be the defrost sensor or timer circuit that is malfunctioning or a combination of both parts

This is a common defrost problem, The ice
is not being melted by the defrost system. he fan can't blow into ref.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check evaporator fan in freezer
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
