Cherice, if the return air vent is what was blocked, this is usually caused from air leaking into the cabinet. This can happen if the door is kept open for long periods of time or if the door does not seal good. Check for gaps in the gasket when the door is closed. If there are gaps, a hair dryer can be used to smooth them out. Just be careful not to get the gasket too hot. In this case, if the door is closing good and not left open long, it may not happen again. If there is frost building on the back wall in the freezer, then this will be a defrost problem. I hope this will help you.
