Normally when this happens its because the compressor itself is stuck which can be fixed (you can also try tapping it with a hammer), but normally it needs to be opened and cleaned, coil replaced etc. and if its sealed and unserviceable its replaced..

in any case you will need a repairman to do this as the fridge will need re-gassing as well...

it is possible to fix on our own but the tools and equipment necessary i'm a bit sure you wont have. Its cheaper to pay to have it repaired than buy the stuff to do it yourself.

Refrigerator does seem like its working right


Your refrigerator compressor is either pumping or it is not. Set the refrigerator to low temperature, pull it out and listen for a while to see it the compressor is coming on. If it is coming on then there may be a freon leak or the internal coils may be iced up. If it is not coming on, then either there is no power to the coompressor, or the compressor itself is defective. Use a voltmeter at the compressor to check for voltage. There is also an add on device to start stuck compressors from your local HIVAC jobber store.

Compressor not coming on


You can test the starter or just put a new one in. If the problem is not the starter it's the compressor which would be expensive to work on or replace. Test starter- http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php
