The small box is probably the compressor start device and this starts the compressor. They go bad. You will have to remove this "box" and replace the start device. when you remove it shake it it should not rattle. If it does then it more than likely is the problem.
the damper vent door between the freezer and fridge section isnt opening up to let cold air in from the freezer side to cool the fridge side,its behind a plastic grille near the top between the 2 compartments,there is also an evaporator fan near this and it also needs to be operating to move the cool air

The refrig is freezing up. I suspect the defrost timer isnt working. The timer activates a heater in the coils which allows them to warm and be self defrosting. If the timer isnt working this wont happen and freezer becomes an iceball. Take the panel off inside the freezer side and you will see the coil froze up. Defrost these with a hairdryer then replace the defrost timer inside the refrigerator behind the light and place where you adjust temp. If that dosent fix it it could be the heater itself but the only way to know is try that first. Easy fix should be inexpensive
Your automatic defrost system is not working. There is a timer which controls the defrost by turning on the heaters for 18-22 minutes inside the back wall of the freezer section. after the defrost time it returns the system to cooling.
You have one of three items faulty. The timer, the heater or the defrost terminator switch.
