Question Refrigerator stopped cooling

Hi My refrigerator and freezer stopped cooling on Saturday. The temps went from -2 in the freezer to 22 and the fridget went up as well. Later that day the temps were up to 70! We unplugged it and let it sit all day sat and sun. This morning we plugged it back in and it started working and cooling back to the temps it is suppose to be at. The fan never kicked in on Sat when the temp rose but this morning kicked right in. What could be wrong with it? I don't want to call a repair man if it might be something simple.

Sounds like it may have a defrost problem. When it happens again in a few days, look on the back wall of the freezer for frost or take the back cover off to see if the evaporator coils are iced up. Post your model number when you report back.
