Good day,
Usually a cold weather issue.
If the machine is getting light service, then that can add somewhat to the problem.
The issue here is how much the machine runs per day,or more important, how much time it's off.
When it runs less because of cool dry conditions, the freezer will run less. Ice cream needs colder temps than other items.
One step that can help, is placing it on the lowest part of the freezer.

As far a food freezing only on the bottom of the fresh food section,
The longer off times contribute to that. Cold air, on the off cycle drift from the freezer compartment thru the returns into the bottom of the fridge section, which can cause that problem.

This is all based on the design of the machine, which has one compressor and one fan circulating motor.

Hate to sound corny, but, if you find a house with 7 kids and a stay at home Mom, who cooks all the meals, the door openings are high enough that this problem can't occur.

Both fridge and freezer are turned up to maximum cooling but they just aren't cold enough even though the weather is mild. Icecream is very soft - barely frozen and fridge temp is about 8 degrees...

Sounds like a failure to defrost.
Look on the freezer rear wall inside the freezer for ice bukdup.
If there is ice the defrost components ,must be replaced.

Fridge compartment keeps freezing contents, despite being on lowest setting

Most likely a faulty thermostat, not turning the unit off correctly or at all. My guess is your freezer food is rock you need a jackhammer to scoop icecream?you dont have icecream??? <gasp> bread, which would normally be frozen, would be stiff like roofing tiles, or if a thermometer is handy, it would read will below -5°F in freezer. that would be the problem on 90% of refrigerator freezers. If ytou have a GE, side by side, it could be something else entirel.

Kitchenaid ice maker dripping and freezing down freezer shelfs

Tube sometimes freezes because of minerals in it hold one droplet at a time until buildup freezes solid. Replace tube first. Water valve allowing some droplets through can also cause this. Tube first-less expensive.

Automatic water dispenser not working/bypass valve leaking alot

Dear Rodeo mary,
Before you do anything else, please first defrost the fridge. Yes, turn it off and leave it open for a couple of hours until all the ice in all compartments has melted. Clean it and put it on again. Is it ok ? Please let me know.

Freezer not that cold

check to see if the evap. fan is running or if you have frost build-up on the back wall of the freezer. if so call a service company quick because the freshfood section is not cooling either; all the cooling starts in the freezer and transfer air via evap fan to the freshfood section. am are more subject to defrost t-stats going bad
