Refrigerator started freezing everything then after weeks of that the fridge got to 65 degrees and ruining food while the freezer was at 20 degrees and ice is melting. No noises anywhere, no clicking. Lights work and a fan is blowing a tag on the back outside of the unit.  Help what is wrong. 2013 Whirlpool unit with the freezer on the bottom.
