Re: Both top freezer and bottom refrigerator not cooling

If everything is running i.e. evaporator fan, condensor fan, and compressor then you have a sealed system problem. If the compressor is not running it may have a bad start device (relay and overload) or thermostat/control board (will have one or the other). I would try a new start device first if the compressor isn't running. If you put a new start device on the compressor and it doesn't start then the compressor is locked up and would be better to buy a new fridge. Hope this helps. p.s. make sure there is no frost build up on back panel in freezer.

check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
