Question about Refrigerators
It is my experience from what get from your description, it is one of two things. Low air flow in evaporator and/or low charge.
Low air flow can be caused by a few things. Things to check
1. evaporator fan is working
2. good air flow into and out of evaporator vents
3. Shelves are not over stuffed with product. Air has to circulate in order to freeze items properly and same for cooling in the fresh food section.
If these all check satisfactory, The next thing to check is the condenser coils for excessive air blockage and condensing fan working. A dirty condensing coil can cause everything you describe.
If these all check out ok, then and only then would I check the charge. The compressor discharge temperature during normal operation in most homes will have a surface temp aroung 140 degrees or higher. If the compressor discharge (high pressure) is not hot to touch, (careful if overcharged or dirty condenser the discharge pipe can cause burns.) then the unit is undercharged and needs refrigerant added. Also, if refrigerant is low, a leak search needs to be performed to locate potential leaks.
Hope this helps
