Does not sound good. We need to find ou where the popping noise came from first. Not cooling is because it sounds like the popping noise is from that area but for sure that area. It could be a failed control board and shorted out the compressor relay.would like to go and do this yourself of have a technician like myself lead you through this? I'm going to get the service manual and if you would like a copy I will get it for you, Thanks and let me know soon, Sea Breeze

Sounds as if the evap fan has quit or a defrost problem. Either is worth the repair. If the fan is running you will hear it when you open the freezer door. If you don't hear it replace the evap fan. If you have a lot of frost build up on the back wall you have a defrost problem and the air cannot flow properly. Either is worth the repair.
