Question about Microwave Ovens
Possible that the auto defrost timer is faulty and is not working to the scheduled timing causing the frost to build up and block the coils in the freezer.
You will need to check this timer at the rear bottom of the fridge , check if thee timer clicks on or else replace,
Make sure that the thermostat is also working and shut the compressor when the thermostat is set low.

Since there is cooling on the freezer the fault can be the defrost timer. So shut off the fridge and leave it off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test from the outside and make your observations so that we come to the solution.
