One thing you can do is make sure the coils underneith the machine are clean and the fan motor is turning. The kickplate is clean. Next you can grab the compressor relay off of the compressor and examine it.It has a floating start relay within it and should make a thunka thunka noise when shaken. If it makes no noise it is bad. If it sounds like a salt shaker or smells burned it is bad. If that is ok then find the defrost timer and see if it got hung up in the defrost mode. If that is ok check the temperature control for continuity. If that is ok then I would say maybe I would but an A-1 line tap on the suction side of the compressor and check the pressure on the low side. It should be no less than 5 PSI and no more than 8 PSI. Anyone can get R134a at automotive stores. If you have no guages then add no more than 3 ounces. If the low side begins to frost over badly then you have too much in there.

My kenmore sidexside quit cooling and freezing. Repairman said it was the relay and compressor without using any tools. Relay was burnt. How can he know the compressor is out too? model 106-54502300

Good day,
He can't, although it's a good guess. However, The compressor can be tested and run with a special test cord most all techs have.
It allows the compressor to be run independent of the rest of the machine and is the definitive test. I would not go forward unless that test is performed. Compressors are too expensive.

Not cooling or freezing quit all at once fan still works in freezer

Might have a bad start relay, compressor failure, or a sealed system leak.
If you hear a slight hum, then a click- it's either a start relay issue -or a bad compressor
