Question about Refrigerators
First check to see if you have proper air flow through the evaporator. If the fan in the evaporator is not working it needs replaced. Often I have found the most common problem to this syptoms described is the freezer overstuffed and air flow is blocked by product. Frozen food need space between items for air to circulate and the inlet on outlet vents on the evaporator need to be unblocked.
while your at it go ahean and look at the condensing coils under your refrigerator, if you have exposed coils these need to be cleaned also. This last step has little to do with your syptoms described, but while you are messing with your refrigerator, condensing coil cleaning should be done at least every year. If you have the type of unit where the condensing coil is in the wall of the casing, then ignor this step. It does not apply to you.
Hope this helps

if you have a gas leak then you find the liquid boil off very early in the evaporator only, there should be no visible frosting until after the end of the capillary

The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help.
If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:

It may be leaking but I think more likely is that you have a problem with the defrost system and it is not defrosting properly... that can give the same symptoms as a low charge or leak condition...

The draining tube / tubing somewhere has a gooseneck similar like the one under your kitchen sink. That is to prevent air from coming up the tube. The area above the draining tube is supposed to be kept ice-free either by the closeness of the defrost heater or it has itself a heater built in.
