Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if
there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not
defrosting as it should.

check the fan relay and the compressor to make sure it is still working...if not there is a capasiter you can replace to get it to work again

* Is your compressor motor running all the time ?
* have you checked and cleaned your condenser coils at the back ?
* Is there sufficient airflow around your refrigerator (especially at the back) ?
* Is your refrigerator and freezer cooling properly ?
Sounds like your unit is working overtime - it will usually get hot like that when compressor motor has been running a long time and heat does not dissipate properly at the back - it also gets hot after a defrost cycle - it should NOT be hot at all times. CHeck to make sure your temps are correct to rule out a stuck defrost cycle timer - your refrigerator should not be hotter than 40F and your freezer's temp between 0F-10F, the optimal temp is 0F.

Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for.
Check on the cold control if faulty, replace the cold control, not having found any other problem, do check on plastic air deflector at the top rear of the frig had been knocked off. replaced it if faulty. As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control, which is now functioning properly.
