Well john , unless you wanted a new one there is something I would have check first. Most all home refrigerators these days are "Frost Free" they have a tube running from a tray under the evaporator to a pan under the fridge. This tube will often get clogged with some real snotty looking stuff that is a natural deal from gasses coming off food stored in the fridge.
This blockage stops the water from draining to the pan and the water freeze on the coil in the freeze compartment.
Fix: Clean out the tube. Run some warm vinegar/water down it. defrost the fridge but turning it off and letting ice off coils melt. This may take longer then one thinks. Best if you can get to the coils (remove panel or what ever it takes) and run a fan on them.
That tube should be clean once in a while and is over looked by most everyone. The old (out of sight , out of mind). The repair guys LOVE IT!
Not say this was you problem but well worth looking at when the old "Ice Box" starts acting up
