Question about Refrigerators
Refrigerator simply stopped working without warning. It's only two years old, and looks as good as it did when it was purchased. Could this be a simple fix (like a fuse or something)?

The most common problems for refers not cooling is a condenser fan motor (the one that cools the compressor) is out. This can be caused by either a mouse has tried to jump trough the fan and it came on or a loss of grease or oil. There is no way to oil them so they have to be replaced. That is the problem especially if you unplugged the refer and it worked for a while then quit. If the fan doesn't cool the compressor it will overheat and shut down coming on intermittently then shutting off again. As for the refer that still doesn't cool when everything else does you may have an burnt overload also. Check the compressor area for burnt or stalled components ex. fan motor, relay, overload. If your compressor is out plan on spending from $300.00 to $500.00. But check the suggested components first. And beware there are appliance shops out there that will find one of these problems and give you an estimate for a compressor. Find someone reputable.

This sounds like the defrost heater is bad or dead. The refrigerator will not cool because frost is building up on the evaporator coils in the freezer section and the fan can no longer push air past the coils. You will find that the freezer will build up with frost.
If you are brave enough, remove the cover in the freezer and you will see the coils are completely covered with frost (ICE). At this point with the refrigerator unplugged ( remove food). get a hair dryer or heat gun and melt all the frost. You will notice a heating element ( looks like a tubed light) -element will looked burnt out.
Replacing it at this point is easy. Before you start though, try to get the manual for your system and call around for a local appliance parts store to see if the part is readily available.

check to make sure there is water or ice in your ice maker tray. If none then problem is usually a water supply issue to the ice maker. Behind the frig are the water supply inlet valves. One is for the water dispenser in the door. THe other is for the ice maker. However when one goes bad they both are replaced as one unit. Also Check position of fingers in ice maker. If not in a vertical position then try to reset the ice maker unit and worse comes to worse, replace it with a new one.

Well, the solution to this problem was posted in this thread
It seems that the bulb in the front panel is pulling to much current as it ages and it makes the control panel in not work properly. Removing the bulb will fix the problem - just fixed mine.
Also seems to match your symptoms (works sometimes and then not others - bulb current is inconstent, light dims when dispense lever pressed - again wrong current draw).
