Do you run AC or heat in the house to reduce the humidity of all the air? As wet as many places have been, humidity might be too much for the refrigerator to overcome. When running an air conditioner, the first stage of cooling is dehumidification. Once the humidity is reduced then the room feels cooler. Something, one of the previously mentioned conditions, is making it over-work.

Garage
Time running before defrost may be too long, a sign the timer is going, maybe. Most aren't too expensive. I would still make sure whatever it uses to evaporate condensate water is working. Usually a type of heater or even a HotGas line in the pan.

Be very careful with Lowe's warranty policies. A few years ago, I paid for a 50 gal. hot water tank with a 12 year warranty. When it went defective just after a couple years, they replaced no problem, but instead of getting a new 12 year warranty, now this new one was only good for 8-1/2 years. BS.
