Depends a bit on whether the compressor really is running, or if it's just humming because it's got power on the run coil, but not on the start coil.
Have a careful listen to the compressor. If it's making the trilling or gurgling sounds that go with a working compressor, then your problem is probably one of lost gas. Fixing this is not a do-it-yourself job.
If the compressor sounds like it's stalled, the problem may lie with the starter. Replacements are usually cheap enough for it to be worth fitting a new one just to see if it works.

remove evrything from bottom of freezer. take out the shelves . You will see a panel on the back of the unit with screws holding it on take these off . under it is the freezer exchange coils they got froze up,
and frosted full so now no air is circulated between the cabintes, refridge and freezer do not use any sharp object to clear it use a towel and blow dryer to thaw it even a spray bottle with warm water, but don't pick at it!!!! you can puncture the coils . take your time and you will save your unit. also while your at it pull it away from the wall remove that small panel from the back, and the grill from the front and with your long reach nozzle vacuum the heat ex changer coils under the unit. put back together carefully and it will run for a while longer i have one that is a 72 model still runs great Oh any change you find is mine!

If there is no cooling at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that the compressor and gas pressure is OK. Now shut off the fridge and leave it powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if ice forms in the freezer then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.
