Side by side Freezer is not cold enough to freeze.

I have a Kenmore side-by-side model 596.58642891. The freezer gets cold but not enough to freeze anything. The fridge side is cold, but not as cold as it use to be. Ice slowly melted in the freezer.

I checked the compressor and the fan in the back and they both were running. The compressor was warm to the touch. I cleaned the vent in the back. The fan in the freezer was running. I did not feel any cold her coming out around the door. I replaced the defrost thermostat and timer.

When taking off the back panel I did have some ice but only by the thermostat. I unplugged the fridge and used a hairdryer to defrost it, but it was frosted up again. The coils didn't really have ice on them and I cleaned them with a wirebrush. I attached two pictures to show what I am talking about.

What should be the next thing I do to get my freezer, freezing again? Is it a freon issue, or an issue with circulation?

Cause 1

Evaporator Fan Motor

The evaporator fan motor draws air over the evaporator (cooling) coils and circulates it throughout the refrigerator and freezer compartments. Some refrigerators have more than one evaporator fan motor. On refrigerators with only one evaporator, the evaporator is located in the freezer compartment. If the evaporator fan is not working, it will not circulate the cold air to the refrigerator compartment. If this occurs, the freezer may still get cold, while the refrigerator will not get cold. To determine if the evaporator fan motor is defective, try turning the fan blade by hand. If the fan blade does not turn freely, replace the fan motor. Additionally, if the motor is unusually noisy, replace it. Finally, if the motor does not run at all, use a multimeter to test the motor windings for continuity. If the windings do not have continuity, replace the evaporator fan motor.

Cause 2

Temperature Control Thermostat

The temperature control thermostat directs voltage to the compressor, evaporator fan motor, and condenser fan motor (if applicable). If the temperature control thermostat is not working properly, it may prevent the refrigerant system from running. To determine if the thermostat is defective, rotate the thermostat from the lowest setting to the highest setting and listen for a click. If the thermostat clicks, it is not likely defective. If the thermostat does not click, use a multimeter to test the thermostat for continuity. If the temperature control thermostat does not have continuity at any setting, replace it.
