Out of coolant? Got a leak? May just be liquid in the radiator, switch off, turn it all upside down (emptied) for 30 minutes, then right way up, leave for an hour, then plug it in and switch on to see if it has helped to get fluid in the compressor. Cant hurt, sounds pretty bad really, sorry!

The first thing to do is to manually defrost the freezer.
If the defroster circuit has failed, the coil in the freezer that is responsible for cooling will be choked with ice. The air that is drawn into through this coil is restricted by the ice - resulting in rising temperatures in the fridge. The freezer will also eventually have a rising temperature (if it hasn't already started).
The next thing to do is decide whether to call a repairman or attempt the job yourself. The faulty component is likely to be one of the following: defrost terminator, defrost timer or the defrost heating element. Accessing these parts will require some simple tools and testing them (once visible) will require a multimeter and taking readings with power both on and off. If you are not comfortable doing this, please call a technician. There is also the hazard of damaging the cooling lines. Skin exposed to refrigerant gasses can result in instant frostbite - and is very dangerous.
You can put this repair work off if you need to - return power to the fridge and it should run fine until the coil becomes choked with frost and ice again. Repeat as often as needed.
This job is not very difficult for trained people to perform and shouldn't be very expensive - of course, "expensive" is a relative term. I hope this helps!
