All frost-free refrigerator-freezers have a thing in the system called a Defrost Timer. The thing is a little clock of sorts that tracks accumulated running time. Every 8 hours of run time the thing cycles through a defrost cycle. The defrost cycle is necessitated by the humidity that forms ice crystals on the freezing coils, if the frost is not eradicated it can build up to the point where no air flows over the coils to chill the inside of the box. The Defrost timer in all boxes fails eventually from old age. When that happens, the coils frost over until they become pretty much just a solid block of ice. Your case may however be the exception, as it seems likely that the timer quit during a defrost cycle. Most timers are located on the front of the machine, behind that removable grille under the door. The timer has a round hollow shaft through it, and can be turned with a screwdriver. If the compressor is not running, give the shaft a slow twist until a click is heard. The compressor should start. If it does, check the fridge in 12 hours to make sure it is not stopped again. Sometimes the nudge will make the timer run for a while. You will need to get a replacement timer. If that doesn't make it take off you should call a servicer.

Fridge wont cool.


Refrigerators draw air from the freezer to cool them. There are several possibilities. First check to see if you need to defrost the freezer, this can cause a blockage stopping the air to the refrigerator also make sure that there is nothing blocking the air flow in the refrigerator.
You can set the freezer colder and turn up the refrigerator setting dial.
If these don't work it could be the fan that is supposed to circulate the air to the refrigerator is not working. The door switch for the light often turns the fan off while the refrigerator door is open.
If the freezer is all the way up and items in the freezer aren't frozen hard then you most likely need you system recharged or there may be something wrong with the compressor.
