Default Fridge - freezer compartment not cold enough to freeze ice

Hi went away this weekend and bought the kiddies some of those freeze
pop things, Popped them in the freezer but they failed to get cold
enough to freeze. Is this common ?
Any other ideas glady received.

Also check if a deflector panel has been put at the back of the fridge.
This helps funnel the hot air straight out of the upper vent and was
ommited by many caravan manufacturers. Without any disassembly - If you
bend down and look along the top of your fridge and can see daylight
coming through the upper vent, then the manufacturer ommited the panel.
Another way to check is if the work top above the fridge gets warm.

It is just a sheet of alloy and quite easy to make and install.
