    Had same issue once, it was the thermostat, it works on a timed loop on most frost free fridges, in the middle of the night is does its frost free thing for a certain amount of time as to not defrost all your food, when they shit the tin your freezer freezes up and you get the symptoms you are talking about.

    Have a read

        We still have our Westinghouse Frost Free bought in 1986. Never spent a cent on it and the only problem we've ever had was a bag of peas lost a couple (somewhere along the way) and one got lodged in the drain tube that goes down to the motor tray. Fixed that about 15 years ago.
        Granted by todays energy standards its probably not as power efficient but if it ain't busted...…..

              I'm a fridge mech but more commercial industrial. Generally frost free fridges need to be switched off and sit for a few days with everything open. The evaporator probably has some ice on it. Don't chisel the ice off. Do this once a year. Also blast out the drain with hot water. Aussie made Simpson \ Kelvinator around 10 years old is the best fridge you can get. Less to go wrong. Gumtree for $100-$200.

                Could be heater or timer or thermostat also. Could also be short of gas. Check for ice in the freezer section. Not worth getting a tech out as fridges are so cheap second hand anyway

                  My one year old Bar fridge lost it's gas 3 weeks after the warranty expired, I kick up a scene in store & promising to be very loud out the front for weeks, Got a replacement! True story.

                    The other day I saw a 1960s kelvinator fridge. Aussie made and still going. Original thermostat and the old good refrigerant in it. They don't make things to last anymore. Except railways side rails they are better than original seriously

                      MY MUM HAD A WHIRLPOOL
                      It went forever. So I got a whirlpool back in 1997 & its still going strong (although the little man that turns on the light died a while back}
                      I got another whirlpool that stands next to the older one in 2006.It,s still going strong although it makes some weird moans N groans ( I think its the freezer gas exchange biz)
                      So I will be sticking to the same brand when I need to get another
