If your fridge is not designed with an automatic de-icing function, then there may be an ice dam blocking the cold air from moving from the freezer to the fridge. I had a fridge once that would get blocked with ice even if the rest of the freezer was ice-free.
Unplug your unit (often shutting off the breaker is easier than digging behind the fridge for the plug).
Pull everything out of the freezer and put it in a box. Cover the box completely with blankets to insulate it so your food doesn't thaw and spoil. Prop open the freezer door and let any ice accumulation melt.
Once everything has thawed out, wipe up the water and plug the unit back in. You should be able to tell after 10 minutes or so whether the fridge is getting cooler or not.
You need to thaw the ice which has clogged the passageway from the freezer to the refrigerator. To do this, you can turn off the whole unit for several hours and let everything thaw, or you can remove the panels and locate the vent(s). Melt the ice with a hair dryer, then reassemble the panels and restart the refrigerator. There is a small chance that the fan in the freezer has frozen up as well. When the refrigerator compressor runs, you should also hear a small fan in the freezer run. If not, you will need to do some investigating to find out why.
Needs to be completely thawed for 2 days. Or wlse the circulator fan under the freezer panel inside freezer is not working. Take the plastic bottom of freezer out and let thaw. Then plug in fridge and check if the fan is running inside there. Do not poke around inside there or fridge will be punctured and ruined.
There is ice build up blocking air flow to the refridgerator compartment. Put everything in a cooler, turn fridgfe off, thaw OVERNIGHT with BOTH DOORS PROPED OPEN and then rinse freezer with a liter(big slam) of water. Let sit 5 minutes and pull bottom drain pan . Empty it. IF YOU RUSH THIS THEN The internal ventalation will still be blocked. 12 hour thaw minimum even with doors open.
I would guess that the condenser fan isn't running. It's underneath the fridge behind the cardboard cover on the back. It should be running when the compressor runs. You can place your own fan on the floor blowing under the fridge till you get it fixed.
This is unusual. The more common set of circumstances is that the freezer works but the refrigerator doesn't. The cold air in a side-by-side is produced on the freezer side and is than transferred throughout the freezer and to the refrigerator by a fan in the freezer.
You say you hear something running in the refrigerator. This could be the freezer fan. It is located behind an access panel in the freezer. This fan should run.
You should also hear the compressor (underneath the refrigerator) running. If this doesn't run, you will not get cooling. Also, there should be a compressor fan (underneath the refrigerator close to the compressor) running. This fan removes heat from the refrigerant coils and transfers the heat to the outside. If this fan doesn't run, proper cooling cannot be obtained.
find another place for all of your food because you may need to call a service company.
stuck in defrost (if nothing is running)
bad compressor (if fans are still running)
freon problem if everything is still running
