Question about Refrigerators
Theres the problem an iced up freezer, the cold for the food compartment comes via a fan in the freezer, no flow, no cold, firstly defrost it completely, check fans are working, if they are ok then it's probably your defrost hester element.

The problem is the compressor isnt starting. The relay is probably ok. It should have 5yr warranty on the compressor. However if you purchase a Supco RC0810 start assist relay available at all appliance parts stores, it will start the compressor, however this is only a temp fix. But it should last till sears can put a new compressor in.

I have repaired my Sears refrigerator/freezer many times since I bought it in 1971. Recently, the refrigerator freezer section started to ice up and the temperature in the freezer started to slowly rise to about 20 degrees F and would not go any lower.
This happened once before and it turned out to be a defective Defrost Timer.
This time the problem was a defective Bimetal (Temperature Switch) that shorted against a metal tube in the refrigerator.
I replaced the Bimetal and now the refrigerator is fine - no frost and it now goes down to 0 degrees F, as it should.
I have taken a series of photos of the problem and repair of my refrigerator plus a schematic diagram. Follow this link for all the photos.
Also, make sure that you don't cover any holes or vents that are in the freezer section

I had this problem last year. I unplugged the the refrigerator and plugged it in an hour later it worked for a little while then quit over night. I finally called a sears repair they came 2 weeks later it was the motherboard, could have fixed it myself, what a hassle. Thankfully I have a fridge in the basement. Still this is a do it yourself.

Check the thermostat, to make sure that it is working properly. The theremostat is a long wire in the top of the freezer up near the fan. If that is bad it will not let your freezer cool correctly
