Question about Refrigerators
Have you defrosted your freezer? Basically this means removing any ice stuck in the fins at the back of your freezer (I find a combination of a good hair dryer and warm water work well- salt water would work better, but cause potential issues with rust and other corrosion). Have you cleaned out the coils on the refrigerator itself? Dust coating the coils ruins the efficiency of the heat transfer process... basically putting wool socks on a hot foot. Both of those would help your freezer go back to working normally. If not, there are other possibilities- like checking the settings on the freezer's thermostat, and if possible- the coolant. However, further than that, I would recommend getting an experienced repair person to examine/repair. If the refrigerator is still in warranty, I would contact the warranty holder for service- or how to get service.

Before you go and try replace any parts, you will want to clean the dust off of the fridge parts. When a fridge doesn't cool properly it can often be because of dust.
You need to clean the front. If you are looking at your fridge, down along the floor you will see a plastic cover with vent holes. You need to pop this off and vacuum the dust off of the grate. You will need to vacuum the back of the fridge as well. And if you have a shop vac, after using the vacuum part of the vacuum, then put the hose on the blow side to clean the areas that you couldn't reach. Make sure to unplug the fridge before cleaning.
