Everthing sunddenly thawed out how come? whats the fix can i do it my self

If you heard the compresor running and it's not cooling ,probably is out of refrigerant(freon) ,but ifthere's power in the outlet and the compresor isn't working and is hot to the touch ,could be the relay or the compresor went bad ,also if there's power but the compresor is cold it could be the thermostat is open ( you can check it by putting a jumper in the thermostat wires).

HELP! Frigidaire Fridge FRS26HF7BB0 losing coldness and buzzing

That noise is typical when the compresor is trying to start but it doesn't , it could be the condensing fan motor that doesn't work and the compresor goes off on overload ; a common problem with this compresors is the relay (mounted at the side of the compresor behind a black plastic cover) goes bad , this you can replace is about $20 , and if still the compresor won't start you will need to put another one and this is an expensive job.

Frigidaire for Kenmore Freezer-Compressor won't start

Set the thermostat to the coldest and check if there's power to the compresor relay , if yes the relay or the compresor are bad (in this case replace the relay which is the cheaper first step ,but if the compresor still won't start probably is burned out) If there isn't power to the compresor put a jumper wire to the thermostat if the compresor runs replace the thermostat.

Freezer runs all the time

I don't have enough information. Use a freezer thermometer and check the temp. If below 0 probably a bad thermostat. Sides getting hot is normal. Thats how it gets rid of the heat from inside. In the summer a freezer can run over 80% of the time. Again this is normal. Another thing to check is the gasket around the door. See if it is worn or torn and is sealing properly. If there are condensor coils under neath clean them check to see if the fan under there is working when compressor is running. (Not all freezers have coils underneath. Some have them in back, Smaller units just use the side of the cabinet.)
