Two of my refrigerators stopped making ice because of frozen water lines going to the ice maker inside of the freezer door. I thawed the lines by unplugging the refrigerator and used a hair drier around the ice maker till all the frost was gone. After I plugged it in I heard water going to the ice maker. If you remove the ice bin you can check the ice tray to see if it has ice in it. If it is empty it is not getting water. It could also be a bad Solenoid Water Valve.

Your problem is more than likely a defrost issue. There is ice building up in the freezer coils and when it gets blocked with ice the cold air cant blow into the fresh food section. When you shut it off the ice melts and it gets cold again for a few days. remove the freezer back panel and check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. if they check OK then check the defrost timer. It is best to replace all three components at the same time. This way you will be starting out with new components rather than one failing then the other.

What you call temperature swing, is hysteresis. For a refrigerator it only is allowed a few degrees. 1 or 2 up and down. A swing from 32 to 45 is far to big. Unless the factory can prove they advertise these figures. I would never buy a frig like that.
I would contact the dealer and ask him / her to replace the thermostat and if that is not possible to bring another refrigerator.

Something is really wrong with yours.

The solenoid valve is at the connection where you screw on the hopes from the water supply to the machine.

remove the service panel, look for a loose or leaky hose. hose is inexpensive and easy to replace. if its coming from the cylinder and is cracked or split, it will need to be replaced. many companys will give you a 1 year contract of buying there water they deliver and you get a free water cooler.
