Sounds like the compressor quit running, or the refrigeration system restricted and is allowing no refrigerant from circulating.
Remove the back cover and see if you can hear the compressor running. If not, there are three or two starting components mounted on the side of the compressor. With the unit unplugged remove them. There are1, the relay, 2, (thestart/run capacitor, some models only), and 3, the overload. They can be pulled off and taken to an appliance parts house which usually are happy to test for you. To check the compressor itself, you will need a working knowledge of electrical and knowledge in the use of a VOM meter. Three terminals stick out of the compressor. The VOM meter should read between no less than 2 and no more than 18 ohms between any two terminals.
If you can hear and feel the compressor running, you have a serious problem. Either all the refrigerant has leaked out, or the system is totally restricted. A for professionals problem only, and very pricey.
However, if the machine is under 5 years old, it is under warranty for this last problem.
If you correct the problem, DO NOT leave the back cover off. It ducts air to the condenser, and must be in place.
