Humming sound and not cooling

Woke up this morning with my refrigerator making a loud humming sound and the inside temperature is in the mid 50's. Does this sound like a compressor problem?

    Had a handy man come out and fix it. You were right. It was not defrosting and it was low on freon. Thanks for the feedback.

Sounds like the motor. If the motor isn't running properly or at all then the cooling systems are affected and the fridge runs warm.

Hi
You have condesation built up in your freezer whereby the evaporator fan or the vents are most likely blocked off.

Turn fridge off. Empty freezer and either put a pot of boiling water inside freezer or with the aid of a hair dryer try to defrost the freezer. If you are able to remove the back panel on the freezer that would be ideal as you can directly target the frost.
Good luck

It sounds like your compressor has failed. The hum is the compressor trying to start and the click following is the over current protector opening.
