sounds like your thermostat is faulty
the thermostat reads the temperature of the cabinet and controls the temperature
the 1 thing to check on the uprights is the evaporator is in the freezer and that makes the cool then there is a fan that blows the air around the fridge and freezer to freeze things
now there is a cycle that hapens to cycle usualy every 12 hours and that is the defrost cycle
this cycle turns off the compressor and fan turns on an defrost element on the evaporator and heats up the coils to get rid of the ice
the ice turns to water and runs through a drain to a evaporator tray and when the cycle is finished the fridge stars up again and goes into the cooling state again
when the thermostat decides that the fridge is cold enough it turns of the compressor and so on it goes through the cycles as required
if the drai is blocked or the defrost system is not working the evaporator will get choked with ice and the fan will not beable to let air through to cool things off

Relay on the compressor bad.
Try unpluging for 30 - 45 min until the compressor has cooled down then plug it back in. If it doesn't start replace the relay. Most service techs carry a universal relay and wiil put the relay on, if it starts, your good to go, if not, then the compressor is bad.

You have a bad compressor relay. to check it you will need a voltage meter. Remove the rear cover and you will see the compressor remove the relay held on by a wire. If the relay sounds like a maraca replace it with part #8201769. If is donesn't sound like somethings broken inside it check for continuity on all 3 compressor terminals ( all terminals should read closed ) now this can go to ways if the terminals read good and the relay is good then the compressor is lock rotor and has to be replaced. Most cases it's the relay Good luck hope this helps
