I went ahead and signed up for Sears' service warranty since I knew I had to get someone to come out. IT costs $200/yr. They say it covers everything, but when the technician came out, he told me that it just covers $500 per visit. He said that a new motherboard and the labor alone was going to make it $498. Anyway, he had ordered a new motherboard. Apparently the motherboard wasn't working. It is located in the back bottom left side of the refrigerator behind the panel. There is a compartment on the lefthand side that slides out and houses the motherboard. He put that in and also had to fix the fan that is in the back of the freezer. That fan is the one that sends cool air up to the refrigerator part. When I had looked at the fan before the repair man came, it was not moving at all. So at least take a look at the fan in the freezer. Just take out the freezer drawers, and the fan is located in the top center of the freezer behind the compartment cover. Maybe that's the problem with your refrigerator, the fan. Hope that's all it is. Good luck!

I just fixed my neighbors fridge that suffered from a power surge. She explained that she smelt a burning smell in the kitchen and the next day the fridge and freezer were not cold. Of course she did not share the burnt smell part until after I discovered the starter relay and the capacitor were burnt on the compressor. She purchased the new starter kit and capacitor from a local supply company and while installing them I discovered the compressor fan was not running which also meant the compressor was not getting any power. I removed the screws that held the control panel on the fridge side (right side) and inspected the circuit board which I discovered a burnt trace on the board for the compressor control relay. I fixed the board by soldering a piece of solid core wire across it and it works great!
Make sure you shop around for your parts. The BIG local supplier here in Tulsa wanted $65 for the starter kit and $65 for the capacitor. We shopped around and found another supplier in Tulsa that sold them for $25 each and they were FSP parts!

Mine was doing the same thing. I pulled the cardboard cover off the back near the bottom and found the fan was not turning and lots of dust buildup. I unplugged it and vacuumed it out and spun the fan by hand and plugged it back in. The fan started and the temp between doors went down. I may have to replace the fan soon.

You either have
1. A bad thermostat
2. Defective compressor
3. A leak in the fridgeration system.
You will want to call an appliance service center for assistance.
