We have the same problem: We own a Fridgedare FRS26ZXH that's about 10 years old. We went to the following website: http://www.refrigerators.com/refrigeratortroubleshooting.aspx
and found a solution.
A refrigerator self-defrosts about four times a day. If a part of the self-defrosting system stops working, the refrigerator keeps cooling. This causes frost and ice to build up on the evaporator coils, which keeps air from the circulating fan, which in turn prevents the refrigerator from cooling properly. It sounds contradictory, but if there's ice building up in your freezer, your refrigerator probably isn't cold enough either. We could not see the coils in the back of the freezer compartment (should be shiny aluminum color). All we could see was ice build up over what might look like a vent.
We carefully blew warm air on these coils with a hair dryer until we could see the coils. Time will tell the cause of this problem if it happens again. It may be coincidence that the outside temp went into the teens and my 4 year old flipped off our house's heating system overnight, causing the issue.
If the problem is with the defrost system, it's either the defrost timer, defrost heater, or defrost thermostat.

Testimonial: "thank you.i bought a defrost timer switch..and for the last year it has ran well..now the compressor isnt kicking in..all i get is the fan to come on"

hi!! make sure that the inside evaporator fan is on and that the compressor and condensor fan motor is on. if they are all on then you have a seal system leak of refrigerant..Good luck..

That sounds like the start relay is buzzing. Unplug and lets check the compressor to see how hot and if too hot to hold your hand on the top of compressor we need to leave it unplugged until we find out if the start relay, start capacitor, overload or if the condenser fan stops after running a short while.

listen for the freezer fan
you may have an ice build up in the air channel
close the freezer door you should feel a good cold air flow of air in the center top shelf
