SOURCE: ice maker not making ice
Water solenoid to ice maker not working. Check with ohm meter..should NOT read open
Water line to Ice maker frozen solid. Look at water inlet to ice maker....is ice present in line?
Evaporator coils frozen over with ice. Will cause water line to freeze and unit will slowly thaw.
Try unplugging the unit for several hours and see if it starts to cool normally again. If it cools normally then check heater element and Defrost Thermostat.

If the compressor (motor - black thing at back) is running all the time, then your fridge may be running out of refrigerant - and is dying slowly.
However - if it turns on and off happily, then it could be the sensor in the freezer needs replacing. You can buy these yourself and is just a plug-in , and a cheap fix for you.
If this doesn't solve the problem, it will be the control board is out of tolerance. You may be able to tweak it - or could be preset.
Try a new sensor first. Sometimes corrosion on the connectors is enough to cause problems. - take out and replace - or swap with the refrigerator sensor.

SOURCE: ice cream soft
Ice Cream is the hardest thing to freeze in a fridge /freezer unit , you need a least 0 deg F
to harden ice cream. If the ice cream was satisfactory before the repair and the stat is set to max. it is possible you have an over charger refrigeration circuit.

LOL ! SO in other words in plain english your repair man told you needed a brand new refrigerator - Ok from your description here we can rule out low refrigerant or compressor problems, defrost timer and controlboard issues. I too have waffles and they DO get frozen although not as hard as ice - the less water molecules they have the less they are frozen hard. but nonetheless, my waffles are NOT soft, neither is ice cream
What I would ike you to do is put one of those refrigerator/freezer type thermostats, you can get those round ones, place it in your freezer leave it there 24 hours and look again - Optimal freezer temps is 0F once compression cycles off - if you areusing the extra cold setting, -10F - For refrigerator don't go over 40F - optimal temp of 36-38F.
Another method you can place a bowl of water and use one of those probes and measure the temp of the water in your fridge. If your temps are within safety levels do not worry - your ice is frozen and your frozen food is frozen - Some ice cream tend to be softer, especially the extra creamy type. If your refrigerator has a dial to adjust temps, raise it slightly and wait 24 hours and check your temps again you might need to bump down the temps a bit - if you have a control panel and 2 settings they are usually COLD or COLDER, set it to COLDER and check again - in the COLDER setting your compressor will shut down once your freezer hits -10F that should be quite enough to have even your waffles and extra creamy icecream frozen - if some of the liquids in your refrigerator is too cold or freezes, set it back to COLD or re-adjust the dial. Once you determined that your freezer AND refrigerator are within SAFETY levels as per the food safety guidelines and using the proper methods of testing, then you have nothing to worry about. Make sure your fridge and freezer are not leaking cold air by checking your door gaskets using the famous dollar bill technique by closing the door on the dollar bill and trying to pull it out - if there is no resistence and can easily come out, you have a gasket leak - check in different places on the gasket. As long as you can determine that your freezer and fridge temps are SAFE don't spend a dime ! If your temps are NOT in the safe range you probably have leaky gaskets - if the compressor seems to run all the time, you probably have dirty condenser coils that need to be vacuumed cleaned or dusted off using a condenser brush.
