Definitely unplug it and leave the door open a couple inches for air to circulate. otherwise, when u need it again it will be contaminated with mildew.

The fridge in the rental house will be empty and not in use for over a month. Can I unplug it or I should keep it running? Will unplugging it damage the compressor?


No it will not damage the compressor. It is worse on a refrigerator in they loss power and get power back, as in an electrical power outage. Than to leave with no power on. Be sure to leave the door open so it does start smelling.

Fridge is not cooling down. Freezer is fine only the fridge. Plus the water dispenser - water is not that cold


These units like most fridge/freezers, actually cool the freezer first, then a damper opens that flows freezer air into the fridge side cooling it. The thermostat/switch controls the freezer, the refrigerator is controlled with a damper. The cold water storage tank is usually hidden in the bottom rear of the fridge, behind the vegetable bins, so if the fridge is not cold the H20 is also warm. I suggest you unplug the fridge, empty the freezer and remove the covers. Your issue could be a simple ice blockage of the air passage, or a stuck or broken damper control. Use Sears parts to look up a exploded view of your fridge. At minimum, you will learn a bit, and if you end up calling a service guy, he will know he cannot fool you and overcharge you.

Check that defrost heater is working. Pull back wall of freezer out, unplug refrig, unplug defrost heater and check with ohm meter that heater is good. If heater is good then check thermistors are good, if reading correctly, then change mother board.
