Inside your refrigerator fresh food compartment and behind the control panel is a Adaptive Defrost Board this could be the problem or the start relay and start capacitor located on the compressor. I would unplug and examine the defrost board first to see if it looks abnormal. Second I would replace the parts mentioned at the compressor if the Adaptive Defrost Board looks ok. Below is a link that you enter your model number in the model parts search feature. The part number for the Adaptive Defrost is 611005988
Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Check and see if the freezer coils are blocked with ice. If not you may have a refrigerant problem as you stated the coils were dirty. The new refrigerants when hot tend to clog the capillary tube which feeds the refrigerant to the evaporator (freezer coils)

check to see if you have a the fan running in the freezer, if not replace fan. if fan is running do you frost on the back wall of freezer, if so defrost by opening door for 3 to 4 hrs. turn back on and if frost returns in 3 to 4 days call for service

The answer to these questions lies in the way the freezer/fridge combo works.
The freezer is where the cooling coils are located. Then air is moved over the
coils and circulated through the fridge side by a small blower or fan. The problem
arises when the air is not circulated for some reason.
The reasons the air is not moving is usually two reasons
The first reason is pretty simple to fix, you simply replace the air circulator and things are good again.
The second reason can be more difficult.
1. The timing device that runs the defrost cycle of the refrigerator is defective.
2. The heater coil that melts the water is shorted or not working
Usually the first thing to check is the heater coil. If there is resistance through the coil then most likely it is still good.
The timing device can be an advanced defrost control board or a mechanical timing device.
If the heater coil checks out to be good then the problem should be the timer.
For most situations, unplugging the refrigerator and allowing it to defrost on it's own will get you going temporarily, till parts can be shipped to you. That will melt the ice and give you a few days or a couple of weeks till it ices up to the point where it will not work again.
So you can see here, the problem can usually be traced to one of three things.
By methodically checking these parts you can isolate your
problem and fix it.
