Odds are great that if you clean the condenser coil (the coil under your frig) and check the Condenser fan to be sure it is running. (little fan under the frig) Bet you its one or the other..*****

Look and see if coils need cleaning below. Do a good clean. Feel the compressor, if it's hot to the touch or cold it may have a bad relay. A relay can fail to drop circuits (causing the compressor to overheat) and open (causing the compressor to be idle).themobilian_2327.jpg

18 ft frigidaire 5 years old used seasonally fan and compressor run but no cold


thata a close call, if you indeed know that the compressor is running.. should be hot when on..and still no cool in freezer section. sounds like a MAJOR refrigeration issue, requiring sealed system repair.. its close because the manufacturer covers selaed system repairs for 5 yrs. ck your manual and with the manufacture first, because you can replace the unit for cheaper than doing repair out of warrantee,
