SOURCE: Have Maytag side by side
the notorious Adaptive defrost did it again (lol) verify the condition of the heater putting a voltmeter on the "beeping" feature if it beeps its good.
Replace the Adaptive Defrost board and defrost thermostat and should work like a charm

It almost sounds as if your fridge is stuck in a defrost cycle.
The timer for this is often located behind the grill at the bottom and sometimes is constructed with a visible shaft that you can mark to see if it is running at all. Some units are constructed so that the defrost heater and compressor can't be on together, others are made so thoughtful. If you don't see a shaft, you might try an old mechanic's trick of using a screwdriver with the tip pressed against the timer housing and the handle pressed firmly behind your ear for bone conduction. If you hear anything like motor noise during the time the compressor is not on, then the timer is probably OK. If you hear nothing, then it might have failed.

If you open the fresh food side (not the freezer), and look to the upper left side you will see a plastic shroud or cover. Behind that cover is a printed circuit board (p.c. board) and a damper motor. That motor brings cold air from the freezer to the fresh food side. The whole damper assembly may need to be replaced. That also includes the cold controls for both sides of the "fridge".
Home Depot Parts and Accessories has the part available. 800.378.5830.
Call, give them your model number, and the description, they will locate the part number for you.
This MAY be the solution for you, it was for me. Hope this helps, better yet, Hope you've fixed already.

It sounds like 1 of 4 things...
1. It could be related to the evaporator becoming Iced over and when this happens it insulates the area iced over and the temp rises...this is caused from the defrost cycle not being activated...(Thermostat, or loose or broken wire)
2. There is a device called the thermistor which senses temp and Ice build up which will cause the unit to go into defrost...this could be bad.
3. The previous fixes may cost a little but not as much as the next which could be a restriction in the evaporator. This is serious and usually requires the replacement of the same...very pricey. Is there only 2 compartment or a pull out drawer for freezer foods..If so you could have an isolated problem in the upper freezer compartment which may be remedied without great cost
If your husband or yourself ..or a handy person can access the back of the freezer by removing the back panel I'm sure you will find either lots of Ice good..as far as cost to repair goes....or no Ice...bad...bad.. as far as cost to repair..the later falls in line with a restriction.
I hope I have helped....please rate me ...The Fang
