Why is ice forming on the inside wall behind my bottom drawer freezer?


I have  a Kitchenaid (model# KFIV29PCMS03) that’s a french door fridge on top and bottom freezer, in which I noticed recently my ice cream in the bottom section of the freezer was soft. All else  seemed fine, so I tested the temp with a freezer thermometer it was -5 degrees, matching what the freezer temp was set to.  But I also noticed the ice buildup I usually get inside my freezer drawers  for the past 2 yrs from what I believe is a gasket issue, has suddenly disappeared. Today, what sounds like the freezer fan has gotten very loud…stays on 1-2 min, cycles off 30 secs, and then it’s back on a few minutes, all day long. And I’m seeing the items in the top freezer drawer are getting soft. Thermometer in bottom of freezer still reading fine.  Upon investigating further by peering underneath the fully opened freezer, we see a thin block of ice covering much of inside back wall of the freezer, blocking most of the vents w/in the wall.  Any ideas??
