The self defrost mechanism is not working. The evaporator is getting blocked with ice, an insulator, and that affects freezer as well as refrig temps. When you unplug unit the ice melts and it will work till the ice block returns.

Freezer stays cool but bottom stays warm.

I agree with your analysis, and recommend that you replace that fan between the two sections.

Refrigator freezing in bottom stays at 32 degrees

your damper vent door has most likely frozen in the fully open position and now all the cold air can get in from the freezer,its between the fridge and freezer compartments behind a plastic grille,if its frozen take a hand held hair dryer and carefully de-ice it so it can open and close again

My Kitchen Aid KSCS25INSS will defrost the freezer up to 57 degrees sometimes twice a day. I cannot use the ice maker because I end up with a large block of ice after one or two days.

57 degrees is pretty hot. If it occurs on a regular basis day to day, it sounds like a defrost cycle malfunction.
There is a calrod heater imbedded in the evaporator coil behind the panel in the freezer compartment. It comes on approx. 2 times a day. The compressor is shut off and the calrod (which looks a lot like the bake element in an electric range) is turned on. It gets quite hot, but a thermostat mounted on top of the evaporator coil, shuts the heater down when the coil reaches approx 50 degrees. If this thermostat ( often called a limiter ) fails to open in time, the temperature in the freezer coil box can easily reach 100 degrees or more. If so, this could be your problem. Remove the rear panel in the freezer compartment aand locate this small disc thermostat and replace with new.

The refrigerator had a blinking message to clean condenser. We vacuumed that and turn the unit totally off and restarted it. The temperature is at 57 degrees inside the refrigerator. What do we do?

Remove shelves and check if there is a small frost or ice buildup on one of the corners of the back panel. If there is - there is likely a problem with the sealed system (freon leaked out)

Ice Cream won't stay frozen it get's all soft and gross. Main things in the freezer stay frozen.

This is an easy one!!
Ice cream needs to be around -5 degrees to +5 degrees to stay frozen (or hard) if the freezer is at like 15 degrees the ice cream will be soft but the rest of the things like meat and ice cubes will be rock solid because anything lower than 32 degrees is freezing for those things.So you might wanna check to see if the fan motor is working and also make sure the condensor coil is free of debris.

Kenmore fridge and freezer not cooling

Check to see if there is any ice built up on the back wall of the freezer. If so thaw the ice and take the back wall out of the freezer. next check to see if the fan is running in the freezer (evaporator fan) This fan is what circulates the air from the freezer to the fridge. If it does run then you have a defrost problem (if ice is on the coils and back wall). Then replace defrost timer, heater, and thermostat.

Refrigerator will not stay cold

Bought a second hand fridge that was running well. We layed the fridge on it's side for moving and let it stand upright for at least 4 hours. The moving was only 45 minutes. The freezer is semi-cold but the main body of the fridge stays at aprox. 68 degrees. Any solutions.
