Charge or restriction in the strainer.
I've been playing around with positioning the thermometer in different spots of the freezer. The top shelf gets the coldest at five degrees where the bottom shelf isn't nearly as cold at 10-15 degrees. Even though the fan appears to be running could it be not circulating well? It seems to blow ok.

Its possible.

Most likely it's an oil logged cap tube. We see this type of stuff all the time on Ultra Low Freezers (-80C).

You have to defrost them for at least 24 hours annually. Otherwise the cap tubes get built up with oil and they won't pull down to temp.

Try it...and see if it pulls down to where it should be.
