SOURCE: Fridge stopped cooling
We had the same problem today and it was because I had not closed the freezer completely a week ago and the evaporator coil in freezer was completely iced up. A blow dryer defrosted the coil quickly. It is best to empty the freezer first and shut fridge off. You need to defrost the coil enough so air will flow through the coil. To cool the fridge cold air is drawn from this coil by an evaporator fan located above this coil behind the removable cover at rear of freezer. IF you remove this cover and this fan is turning check for ice on coil. That is probably the problem. Evap. fan is about $100 - ouch. The other thing you can check is the fridge damper control at top rear of fridge. This failed on us 13 months after we bought fridge so no warrenty. Part was $44 plus service of $100. Now I fix this fridge myself. If you remove damper cover you can cycle thermostat and see it open and close. If it is not opening replace it. You can probably find the part cheaper that $44 at an apliance parts store.

I was having the same problem but with the refrigerator side. I know your problem was with the freezer side but I hope this works in your situation too. I was also told to unplug the fridge for 20 minutes and that did not do a thing to reset the circuit board in my situation. Unplug the refrigerator first. In the back of the refrigerator at the bottom is a metal panel. Remove that panel and off to the right side of it should be a white looking plastic box. Unscrew that box from the fridge and open it up to get to the circuit board. Remove ALL harnesses from the circuit board and capacitor. After doing so plug them all back in and reassemble everything back together and plug in the fridge. This should reset the board and allow it to function correctly. This is advice I got from someone else and everything as of today is cooling down like it should. I hope this helps everyone else out. Best of luck.
Also since the evaporator was frozen solid at the bottom on the refrigerator side I had to leave the power off until it thawed and then had to soak up all the water that collected at the bottom of it.

You model if the ARB1950C has a defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment and behind the temperature control panel. Need to see if you can manualy turn the timer clockwise until the compressor stops. During that time of 25 minutes the freezer should be in defrost. I believe your timer needs replaced based on how you explained what is happening. The part number for your timer is 67001036 and can be found at the links below. If it stays longer that 25 minutes then it's sticking in the defrost section of the defrost timer and will need to be replaced. If your refrigerator does not restart after about 25 minutes then slowly turn the timer through the opening in the plastic cover. There may be a plug covering the hole to make the hole not so visible. If you should have problems fell free to let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

These usually have one compressor and an evaporator on each side with a fan. check the fans first then the defrost timer, heater and limit thermostat.
