My freezer is not cold enough. Any tips on how to diagnose or fix this?

I have a reasonably new (6 months old) regular, upright fridge / freezer. For the past couple of days, the freezer has been operating at about the exact same temperature as the fridge (I have a little fridge/freezer thermometer to confirm this).
Before I arse around trying to get a techo out for warranty repair, are there any quick-fix tests I can try? eg defrosting, checking that the fridge is level, smashing it with a hammer, etc?
I've already tried the temperature dial on all settings, and shifted the no-longer-quite-frozen food around the freezer. The manual is completely useless, by the way.
