Compressor might be working but you may have lost some freon. Continued operation with low freon can lead to other problems. This may require a service call since recharging freon can only be done by a service professional.

SOURCE: Refrigerator compressor overheating

Seems as if you have arefrigerant leak (or water vapor in the system) - both of which will trash the compressor in short order.
Time to take it to a pro who will put gauges on it and find out.

SOURCE: Need to replace a clicking circuit board

yes just take out the 1/4 inch screws from the plate on the back of the fridge and unclip the board. There will be quite a few plugs but no worries cause they will only plug into the ports they will made for so you don't need to worry about plugging the wrong wire in anywhere.

There is only the coil in the freezer and a fan moves the air to the refrigerator. Check the fan inside the unit. IT might also be icing on the coil that is causing no air flow.

Hotpoint FFA60 - Freezer Fan not working

It sounds as if the fan motor itself has failed, & without the fan, only the coils will get cold. A replacement can be obtained from any appliance parts store, or from Hotpoint...check the website. If you are not experienced in appliance repair, I suggest you call a repair person , as some of the fans can be difficult to replace, & it is easy to cause additional damage.

I have a 6-2003 Frigidaire side by side Model#FRS23F4CW0 Electrolux refrigerator. It gets hot in the middle of both doors the frame only. Is that normal.

Mine did the same thing and then stopped cooling within a few weeks. I opened up the lower back cover to check the coils for dust and found that the fan had stopped working. I took a box fan and blew air through the coils and it started working just fine. Now I just need to fix the fan problem and I'm back in business. Bottom line: check under the fridge to make sure the coils are able to dissipate the heat.

Not cooling

Are the evaporator coils in the freezer frozen up?
The evaporator is located behind the cover in the back of the freezer.
If so this may be a defrost issue.
The adaptive defrost timer may have failed.
This is located in the ref. side inside the front control pannel.

If not then you may have a freon leak.
This would have to be repaired by a qualified technician.

If the compressor is running the condenser fan should be too. If the fan does not run the compressor will overheat and stop. If you cool the underside with a small box fan and the chill returns to the box, replace the condenser fan.

GE side by side refrigerator

Try pulling toe plate at bottom front and clean the condenser coils. If they are plugged, it will cause this to get hot. If you can't see coils in front remove back panel and clean coils there.. Give it time after cleaning to see if it helped. If no change, remove back panel and check to see if fan is turning when the compressor is on.
Also check for something caught in fan blade, such as a dead mouse or a dead coupon. If fan isn't turning, may need condenser fan motor. If still need help, give us a model number. Found in refrigerator compartment at top on side walls.
