Kenmore Freezer not freezing completely


I have a Kenmore Model 106.73854302 not sure how old it is, at least 5 years old (came with the house). Recently I defrosted the freezer to clear an ice dam in the drain tube for the defrost cycle. the freezer has operated just fine for about 2 weeks, now it only cools to just above 34 degrees. The freezer fan is functioning properly. Any ideas of what to check or look for?

Thanks,

Rich

When was the last time you vacuumed behind the fridge? Also remove back cover and do the coils, carefully, at the same time.

look on the back wall of the freezer, is it covered with frost? My bet is you have a problem with your self defrost.
