Please check other question on this subject, but long story short is that the unit needs to be completly defrosted, your freezer is what cools your fridge and if there is ice build up on the evaporator air cannot flow through to the fridge.

If the power outtage was less than 10 minutes unplug the unit for 20 minutes. Then attempt to restart the unit. If you have a display and nothing happens press power cool and power freeze for 8 seconds then use the up arrow to cycle through until you get to the final test and it should restart. If you still have the problem after doing the above, respond without rating the post and I wll help you. RS2556 Service manual is publication number SAM0097.pdf and can be found here:

is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.
