I had the exact same problem. The condenser fan in the bottom should run all the time. The entire condenser unit (compressor, coils and fan) sit on a metal tray that may be rusted to the bottom of the unit so a few taps from a hammer from the back may be needed to slide it forward. Once you can get to the fan, check the wiring. On mine the spade plug had rusted away. Follow the wires from the fan to a small box on the side of the compressor. Make sure the fan wires are securely connected to the terminal block. There are two male spade connectors that provide constant 120v. They point up. Make sure there is power and the fan motor is connected.
The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help.
If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:
could be a broken spring inside the compressor and would only make a noise as the compressor stops. nothing you can do about it. you would need to break open the compressor, replace the spring, weld it back, then charge it up again with refrigerant.
