The revised size calcs out at ~ 110 BTU/H of cooling req'd so its certainly feasible for your fridge to keep up. Definitely look for places where air might be getting through. The threshold of the double doors and where they meet up could be the problem.

It's my understanding that the ice buildup is only 32f so it kills the output of the freezer coil which operates far lower than that. But my reasoning could be wrong.
