Welcome to Justanswer … my name is ***** ***** I will help you today!

This indicates temperature issue and/or an air flow problem due to heavy ice build-up inside the rear wall of the appliance.

Try this:

Leave it unplugged and empty with door open for around 24-36 hours.

Then plug it back and wait for another 4-8 hours.

The problem should be resolved.

However, if the issue appears again you will have to test/replace the temperature sensor(thermostat/thermal fuse); the issue should be resolved.

I will have to empty both the freezer and fridge. There is no sign of ice in the fridge compartment but I notice that there is some ice in the freezer which there shouldn’t be. Do you think that indicates the same problem?.

The ice is inside the rear wall.

You can try the advise above and let me know how it goes.

Hi. I cleaned out the fridge/freezer and left it for 24 hours to defrost. I have set it up again but still getting high temperature in the fridge. Can’t get it below 8 degrees at the top of the fridge despite the control setting at 2 degrees. Do you have any other suggestions?

OK as the control board is faulty and will need replacement.
