These units are called frost free, however in my experience they are some of the time but not all. It is likely that the freezer has built up some ice around the coil and the fan which migrates to the fridge, try the following.
1. Empty the fridge and freezer and store the food elsewhere.
2. Switch off and unplug the unit and leave for 24 to 36 hours with the doors held slightly open. You may get quite a lot of water on the floor, you just need to mop it up, this is normal.
3. Wipe out the inside of both sides to leave them clean and dry.
4. Plug in and switch on, wait around 4 hours.The vent will be clear.
5. Re stock the unit it should be OK.
6. If the problem re-occurs within a few days then there is another possibility that is causing this problem and that is there may be a fault with the defrost system. Possibly the timer, the termination switch or the heater.
7. If the problem goes away for several months then the ongoing solution is to repeat the above steps.

Your refrigerator gets its cold air from the freezer by way of a fan that transfers air past the freezer coils to the refrigerator. If the fan isn't working the refrigerator will not get cold. I your coils in the freezer are freezing up this will also stop the flow of air to the refrigerator. The first thing to check is the fan.Most refrigerator/ freezers are only controlled by one compressor (unless its a very expensive model). So if one is cold and the other isn't it's normally a simple problem.
Check whether the defrost drain is blocked..This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the freezer coil) cycle. Seems like it is blocked with water or ice.
Unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment.
pull off the back panel or the bottom panel (in the freezer compartment) Look for that defrost drain hole.Pour small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it away with a sponge or dishcloth. Repeat this until I get the water to go down the drain tube
