It is very common for the "relays" to go out on the compressor. The relays are mounted on the left side of the compressor. You need to find an "Appliance Parts Store" and buy an "RO-41". (this is a relay) it cost no more than 10 bucks. Go home with your new bought relay and pull your refrigerator out from the wall. Don't forget to unplug it! Take off the rectangle card board cover off the bottom of the refrigerator "in back"... More than likely 1/4 nut driver. Now look for the compressor--"The Roundish black thing the size of a basketball". Next, you will see a box looking thing (black, white) mounted on the side of the compressor with 2 wires going to it. Next take it off the side of the compressor. It just pulls straight off! Sometime though it may be held in place by a little clip. Now read the instructions with the RO-41(inside cover). You will end up cutting the old relays off. Take the two wires that went to it and wire them into the relay(follow the instructions w/relay) then other wires on relay plug right into the compressor! AND THATS IT! It sounds hard but aint... goodluck!!!

is it possible the door has not been closed at some point?
If so they can build up with ice in the evaporator which the defrost system cannot handle....Try a manual defrost.
Depending on where the unit is installed high ambient temperature can drop the internal temp enough to set the alarm off though they will still freeze sufficiently

In some cases, a faulty thermostat may not be the cause of a warm refrigerator or freezer. A warm box may also be caused by a defective fan, a blocked fan, or broken or bent fan blades. If the blades are jammed, try to free them. If they're bent, straighten them with pliers. If this doesn't solve the problem, call a professional service person.
On some refrigerators, the door switch operates the evaporator fan. If the fan seems to be malfunctioning, the door switch could be faulty. Test the switch as detailed in the last page, and replace it if necessary.

It sounds like the unit is low on freon or the compressor is going bad. You have several other components that could be affecting this as well. Make sure the coils are free from dust and clean underneath. This is a bit premature for you to have problems now, especially since it is a Sears product.
