1. Check and clean the condenser where system heat is transfered to the air. Located in back behind removable panel, after cleaning make sure you re-install the panel for proper air circulation.
2. Check the back wall of the freezer for ice or frost. If you have frost buildup on the back wall you have a defrost system problem. This would be lated to the timer, heaters, or defrost thermostat.

Faulty Cold control (Temperature Control)
The cold control is a temperature actuated switch and should open when the set temperature has been achieved. If the control does not open and turn the compressor off, it will continue to run and all items in the fresh food section will begin to freeze.
If the control is not closing, the compressor and all fans will cease to operate. Check the control for continuity.
This is usually not a do it your selfer.

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.
