There is a problem with the compressor realy. it is mounted to the side of the compressor and when the coils get plugged with lint they will overheat and short out.
clean the coils and remove the relay, a white box looking device and shake it in you hand, if it rattles or has pieces coming out of it, then it is bad and should be replaced.

check for frost in freezer section. If frosted up your air flow is being blocked. Must thaw and determine why it is not defrosting

If the compressor is not operating to cool the unit then the most likely causes are the relay or the capacitor or the compressor. If the compressor is extremely hot then that tells you the compressor is getting power but not working. If it isn't hot then it probably mean that either the relay or the capacitor is not allowing power to get to your compressor.

Freezer side working frige side not


Check ur cold control thermostat, ur thermistors in both fridge and freezer ( they should be checked for both ohms and for amount of current being put out as per ur model ), ur air flow vent from freezer to fridge.( to make sure it opens and closes without any restrictions) On thermistors check for A close circuit and amount of ohms not just an Ohm reading. As per ur model. Most should atleast show 1200 ohms. Also Check door seals for leakage. check ur fan and air flow damper vent too

Freezer is working good but the frige is 52


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp .
OR
.
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

Refrigerator getting hot!


There is a part of the condenser called the mullion loop that adds heat to keep moisture from building up and causing the door gaskets to stick. If it's too hot to the touch, first check your frige and freezer temps. You'll obviously know if the frige is too cold, but you may not know if the freezer is too cold. The freezer should be between 5-10 deg ABOVE zero. Any colder and the frige will have to work harder and would create more heat. Also check the condenser coils. If they are dirty it will prevent the frige from removing the heat properly. The condenser should be cleaned at least annually. Most friges have a condenser fan motor. Make sure the motor is running and the fan blades are clean. Most friges also have a cardboard type panel on the back at the bottom. That panel directs the air flow across the condenser and must be in place. If it's missing or damaged it will need replaced.
