Re: refrigerator not cooling at all
Sounds like it needs more gas, and checking for leaks. If you have a leak tester, you can test that yourself, but topping it up has to be carried out by an authorised technician, sorry. Call your local fridge guy.
Hope this helps :)

No the evaporator fan not running has nothing to do with the compressor. I would suspect that you are freezing up over the evaporator because the fan is not running and when it ices up the air can not flow through properly therefore causing the refrigerator side to get warmer. Replace the fan and you should be fine. Take the back panel inside the freezer off and see if you are all iced up. If you bare then I would replace the fan . You also said the defrost heater did not come on. That will also cause a freeze up. Possible replacement of the defrost heater may be needed. Good Luck!
could be the fan motor,compressor or when the compressor is running it could be vibration in the frame,what fan are you talking about,the condenser fan where the compressor is or the evap fan in the freezer?you just have to try and listen and feel the compressor and fan motor when it's running and try to tell were it's coming from,if it's the compressor just use it till it dies,it could run like that for years but i wouldn't take a chance,i would buy a new fridge if it's a fan motor i would fix it.
sounds like the compressor is not running. The condenser fans are located at the compressor. The fans in the conditioned space are the evap fans. A refrig usually does not have any device controlling the evap fans, they are to run 24/7. Freezers have other controls. Start there and let me know if I can help further.
sometimes you do everything proper and when repair is done another failure occurs because of long run times because not defrstng . the orginal freon charge may have been alittle on the low side and weakened the compressor what you can do is tap the seal system and add 1/2 of the orginal charge listed below the model # should be 134a this will often work for quite some time and remove the panel off the evap in the frzr and observe the frosting on the coils it should be uniform on the evap with no places getting missed if you can not tell temporily move frzr item and unplug to allow frost to thaw then plug back in and open door allow to run 30 min then look at again if only on part of the evap perhaps top or the lower then you know the orginal charge was low then add freon it sound you are very mech person and possible you may need to add the orginal charge to unit (the compressor has taken heat and it has weakened it)
how is the freezer side check theese and get back to me hold the rating till we are done is the freezer fan running as the freezer cools both sides is there heavy frost on the back wall of the freezer down toward the bottom is the compressor running is the fan that cools the compressor running are the coils underneath the unit clean is the ice cream to soft milk too warm
