I was having the same problem but with the refrigerator side. I know your problem was with the freezer side but I hope this works in your situation too. I was also told to unplug the fridge for 20 minutes and that did not do a thing to reset the circuit board in my situation. Unplug the refrigerator first. In the back of the refrigerator at the bottom is a metal panel. Remove that panel and off to the right side of it should be a white looking plastic box. Unscrew that box from the fridge and open it up to get to the circuit board. Remove ALL harnesses from the circuit board and capacitor. After doing so plug them all back in and reassemble everything back together and plug in the fridge. This should reset the board and allow it to function correctly. This is advice I got from someone else and everything as of today is cooling down like it should. I hope this helps everyone else out. Best of luck.
Also since the evaporator was frozen solid at the bottom on the refrigerator side I had to leave the power off until it thawed and then had to soak up all the water that collected at the bottom of it.

I think you have a fan problem. Your refrigerator mus have a bad fan or not working fan. I suggest you full out the refrigerator and open back lower cover. Two months ago, I have a problem like your. I fixed by replace a fan. You have to options to fix it.
Option 1. Check your refrigerator's fan with voltage. It think it should be 120VAC. If yes, you can buy a fan from electronics store (it cost about $12.00 to $17.00). they you remove the old fan and its motor out. Install the new fan in. Then you need to drill 4 holes to tie the fan. By doing this, you keep the fan running stable. The fan won't vibrate.
Option 2. You can go online to this website partstore.com and buy an exactly the one you need and replace the old one. It cost about $40.00.

I just had (have?) this same problem. I called out the repair man and in the end he suggested that I buy a new fridge because of all the problems reported with my model (RS2555SL) on the internet. Anyway, after a while I heard what sounded like a fan trying to spin on the fridge side. I unplugged the unit, removed the inside back panel on the fridge side. The entire coils and the fan had iced over. I removed all the ice, plugged the unit back in and it is now working. I will still replace this unit because I probably only corrected the symptom but the problem remains.
