Crystal cold lpg fridge the fridge part works fine but the freezer only cools to the same temp as the fride compartment

The freezer should go down to about zero degrees. If your unit is constantly running it is because the internal temp has not activated the thermostat to turn off the compressor. Lower than normal refrigerant levels could account for this. Also to be checked out is the evaporator coil not being frozen over with a block of ice - the latter is caused by an inoperable self defroster - this causes the freezer to not cool properly and raise all internal temps.

If not a self defrosting unit, defrost the unit and restart unit. It will cool properly until the evaporator freezes up again. How fast it freezes up depends on how often the freezer door is opened and how much moist warm air enters the freezer compartment.

Refrigerator doesn't get colder than 55 degrees.

Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Compressor seems to be working, lights are on but no one home- that is, it just isn't cooling or freezing. Is there anything that I can check?

You might want to make sure your defrost unit isnt stuck in the on position. You have to remove the back panel inside the freezer section and look at the cooling elements and defrost element beneath it.
You will need to locate the defrost power supply/timer unit and disconnect it. See if the freezer starts cooling down. If it does just buy a new defrost board.

If there is no change, your compressor may just be worn out as well. Or it may need a bit of coolant...but that usually means you have a leak so a refill would just be a stopgap fix.

Whirlpool runs, but freezer not freezing and frig not freezing

If the compressor is running but the unit is not cooling you may have lost the refrigerant.  See if the condenser coils at the back or bottom are hot.  If they are only warm then the refrigerant is low and can be recharged.  Service tech should check for leak in coolant system.
