It sounds like the defrost heater is burned out. Remove the inside back cover in the freezer to see if the coils are frozen up. If so, more than likely your defrost heater has bit the dust. It is located at the bottom of the inside coil of the freezer.
Also, you could be have a clogged condensor coil. It is located on the out side back of the Fridge. You need to remove the panel from the lower part of the fridge and do a thorugh cleaning.

SOURCE: Freezer quits working
Solution Found! The problem is when the temperature surrounding the
refrigerator in the garage falls to < 45 degrees, the thermostat
regulating the refrigerator will not call for the compressor to kick in
to provide cooling (it's temperature requirements are being met). Since
there is no demand, the compressor will not cycle, which is how the
freezer is kept cold, and the freezer eventually warms up to match the
refrigerator temperature. Frigidaire makes a "Cold Kit" that I ordered
and installed from RepairClinic.com for $22 (Item
#: 1037646; Description: Garage kit). It's basically a strip heater
that runs off the control power to warm the thermostat and causes the
compressor to cycle once to twice a day to keep the freezer frozen.
After installation, the refrigerator stays at 40-45 and the freezer
stays around 0 degrees.

If the repairman is experienced the problem will be resolved. I have recharged refrigerators myself and it is difficult, time consuming ad tedious. Sorry the work needs to be done in your home. If he does not know what he is doing he will cause problems and make excuses for why the refrigerator does not work correctly. Hope you have the best service available for your area. Sea Breeze

you have a bad defrost timer or a heatting element.mif there is ice on the rear wall you will have to empty it and remove all shelves, pull the cover and you will see the heating element. it will be in a glass tube. you can see if its burned into, look for blackness inside the glass tube. when you install the new one be sure to put it so water wont run inside the tube, or it will burn out right away. good luck you can do this sawdust46

The compressors are rated for ambient temp. and most refrigerator compressors are rated for abour 50 degrees F
to answere your question yes the ambient temp is a problem.
And as for the Thawing, the refrigerator will go into defrost every 8 to 10 hrs and turn on the heater inside the freezer for about 30 min.
You can also cause damage to the seal system and the compressor because the oil will become slugish inside the compressor.
In other resarch I found that because of the ambient temp the freon gas (mostly the newer freon's) won't work corectly because they stay in liqued form.
