With the unit unplugged, take off the back cardboard panel. On the lt rear side you will find the compressor. On the lt side of the compressor you will see a white box mounted on the side, this is the relay, and it most likely will have a zip tie holding it on. Cut the zip tie or unhook the clip. Gently pry the relay from the side of the compressor. If it is badly burnt make sure there are 3 connectors on the compressor, sometimes they will burn one off or burn it so bad the compressor will need to be replaced $$$$ if not in warranty. If its not burnt thats hopefully what you will find, hold out your hand with the compressor side of the relay pointing down. Shake the relay like a salt shaker into your hand. If you get grey flakes/chunks in your hand the relay is bad and will need to be replaced. easy fix for about $45 - $50.

Switch off completely for a day and give a good defrost. If when you retry and it still does not cool,(assuming the compressor is running) then you have either got a blockage or an internal leak. Need to then get a technician to sort out.

You have a bad overload/relay . This is the piece pluged onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . The part number is 8201786 . It is easily replaceable and instructions come with it . Price is around $60.00 .

SOURCE: Refrigirator stop cooling
if you hear a noise like clicking when the compressor tries to start and unit will not cool the starter overload on the side of the compressor that starts it has burnt out simple replace the starter overload and it should start
