Welcome to Fixya
You said, your Fridge is 3-4 years old. It has power (the light works) but the
motor does not run therefore its not getting cold. Is this likely to be
a motor/compressor problem? if so is it worth fixing or should you just
replace the unit.
It is only 3 or 4 years old and you bought it new?
I think it may be low on freon, and the compressor will not turn on under these circumstances.
A compressor does not usually go in 4 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Call Frigidaire and if it is the compressor you can ask them to replace it free cause it is only 3 years old. You would be surprised what the right person can do.
I deal with them every day.
They know it is harder to find new customers than to keep the ones you have!
It may only be only a bad thermostat.
I usually tell them I'm about to redo my kitchen and picked all frigidaire Pro steel apliances, BUT I"M NOT going to go with them if they do not make good on my new defective freezer!
( Be real nice and soft spoken and sweet. Not angry and insist, do not give in)
If so your good with a nominal repair.
Try this first, turn the fridge off at the switch inside . And then unplug the unit for 5 minutes.
It must be off at least 3 minutes is why I told you 5 minutes!!!
Some units will reboot their systems and start!
Let me know how it turns out!
Here is an interesting article I just read about , to replace or fix!

.Repair or replace?
When to pull the plug on your dishwasher
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section
for more-serious problems in the owner's manual and on the Web sites of many
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model? The answer
depends mostly on the age of your dishwasher, how much you bought it for, and the cost of the repair. Follow
these guidelines from our in-house experts:
When a repair makes sense. If your dishwasher is under warranty or less than
four years old , paying for a repair makes sense. Note that dishwasher under warranty might require
service from a factory-authorized technician; readers have found them on a par
with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice. If your dishwasher is out of warranty and is four
to seven years old, it might make sense to pay for a repair. Readers paid $100
to $200 for a repair. But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features. They pay for
them selves in only a few years due to higher energy efficiency which is
another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008, are 43
percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56
percent more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace. The repair costs more than
half the price of a comparable new dishwasher. Our data also show that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive dishwasher six or more years old .
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent of
a dishwasher you replace is
likely to end up in a landfill.
