It is possible to get this build up in the return vents.  Check seals for any possiblilty of warm air getting into the fridge.  Warm air getting in will cause this.  For now use a hair dryer or some hot water to clear the vents.  Let me know what you find.  Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.

Your door switch is bad.  When doors are opened, the fan stops.  No cooling.  When it closes, fan starts.  Bulb is just an indicator of no power to unit...probably burned out contact in switch.

SOURCE: Freezer compartment of refrigerator not freezing

First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.
So, how can the Ref side be cold and the freezer side not freezing?

1. Coolant leak. There is enough coolant to keep the Ref side cool but not enough to freeze on the freezer side.

2. Defrost system failure. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice and it's just a matter of time when the Ref side won't cool either. The back wall in the freezer will be covered with ice/frost

Look for ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer.
If ice is there you have a defrost parts issue.
If not, check the compressor to make sure it is running.

Refrigerator compartment freezing


Experience tells me the design should maintain 40 -34 degrees in the refrigerator section when the freezer is between 0 and -10 You might check this if you have a thermometer for the job, and adjust the thermostat accordingly. Your unit may also have an airflow control (I didn't research) to adjust the refrigerator independent of the freezer.

Freezer side not freezing


It is possibly your defrost element which is not working causing a build up of ice and reduced airflow through the freezer compartment. This is located behind a cover in the freezer compartment. It is best to change both the element as well as the defrost limiting thermodisc which is attached to the fins of the evaporator.
