The temperature is not consistent in both the top freezer or the bottom fresh food compartments. About a month ago, the temp in the freezer rose above freezing and the fresh food rose up to 53F. The next day it went back down to 48F and down in the 30's the next day but still went up and down over the next few days. So I unplugged it and rolled it outside and power washed the condenser coils on the back. Let it dry out a couple of hours and cleaned the underneath. Made sure all the air ways in the freezer section were clear. After a couple of days, the temp resumed the swinging, from 48F to 33F and back. The fan sounds normal. Could the evaporator coils be frosting up and thawing, hence causing the temp swings? I have the controls on full cold for both compartments. The tag says R12 refrigerant so doubt I can find any service that would charge it if it's low on refrigerant. Thanks for any advice.
