more than likely the defroster inside the freezer has gone bad. This defroster is located in the space between the fridge and freezer and activates to defrost the freezer and stop build up of ice in the freezer.. If it is bad the freezer will not keep the fridge nor freezer cold.

Higher than normal temperature. Is your ice cream soft?

I believe that a short circuit creates a defective light bulb inside the refrigerator or some other element in its circuit (door switch, lamp socket, wiring).

For such a procedure you should have knowledge and a lot of expensive work condition like:
- Vacuum pump
- Charging station
- Manifolds
- Recovery station
- Electronic charging scale
- Electronic leak detector or UV leak detector
and so on ......
The situation is further complicated by some of the new environmental gases which are explosive so you need to be qualified and trained person. It is best to leave that to the specialist or qualified service personnel.

Under normal operating conditions, the internal
temperature of the freezer will ensure the longterm
conservation of the stored food.
When such temperature rises above a certain
level (-12 °C), the appliance will trigger an
acoustic and light alarm. The light alarm is a
blink red light (Red Alarm Indicator Light), while
the acoustic alarm is an intermittent sound.
You can stop the acoustic alarm by pressing
the Acoustic Signal Stop Switch once.
When switching on the freezer for the first
time, the Red Alarm Indicator Light will
blink until the internal temperature has reached
a level required for the safe conservation of frozen

Because it does not achieve the correct temperature (for example: -18 degrees centigrade).
For a more precise answer I need more information.
A lot of things may be incorrect:
- Doesn't work defrosting cycle
- The cooling fan is not working
- Too much ice on the evaporator battery
- Faulty thermostat or NTC sensor
- Faulty cooling system (gas leak)
- Compressor
- Electronic

It sounds like the door got shut when something in the jam and you may need to loosen the hinge, realign the door and tighten the door hinges again. Easier with 2 people but not impossible with 1.

the unit was still wet inside when you switched on the fast freeze,hence the frost and ice.

Hello....Sounds to me like the fridge is getting low on refridgerant gas...If it is an older unit...it may have developed a leak over time and may just need a recharge.Get a quote from a repairman...most of the time..it is not very expensive to fix unless there is a problem with the compressor....I hope this was helpful....PEACE....
