Question about Freezers
The top of the freezer is refrigerator cold, but not freezing. Could the freezer be too full? Would that be a problem?
If the bottom of the freezer is freezing (but only just), but the top is just above freezing, then your problem may be either your defrost timer or the defrost heating element. You'll need a thermometer to determine how cold (or not cold) your freezer is getting. Usually a freezer is happiest when it's full, so being too full is likely NOT the problem (there is room for air to circulate, right?).
If you're handy, you can troubleshoot the problem yourself by following the suggestions found here, as that may at least identify the problem. Replacing components inside your refrigerator isn't incredibly complicated, but if you're uncomfortable with taking things apart, you may be better off seeking the help of a properly trained professional.
Hope this information helps!
