The bottom fan is turning, air is blowing around on the inside of the frige, but the compressor is not turning on. The compressor is not warm to the touch. The coils are clean and the lights come on, water dispenses etc.. I'm guessing it is the adaptive defrost board or the thermostat? I guess i can replace both but would nice to test the parts beforehand... any other part you make think is the problem? Thanks for any help you can provide!!!

Check the air vents, from the freezer to fridge. Air travels through those vents. Sometimes, products get shoved under the vents, preventing air flow. It sounds like, the vents are clogged with something. I guess, the fan is working inside, of the freezer? Ice in the bottom, of the freezer pan, could be clogging the vents. You'll have to dig deeper. Good luck.
may need to have your frige recharged or neeed a new fan. does the fan sqeal when it turns? if so the bearings are going out. if it doesnt and your frige isnt staying cool then the fan motor may need to b replaced or the frige might need recharging. if it runs just fine and no noise i wouldnt worry about it
that would be a valid check
but with this model i would look more twords you thermister in the refer, if its maintiaing a constant temp, but just outta temp, its more than likely you thermistor is going bad
Sounds like the overload/relay is going out . If the noise is a " click " , replace the o/relay after checking the 3 terminals on compressor for continuity and each terminal to ground ( copper tubing ) .
Typically the freezer air is circulated into the frige area to provide cooling. If the circ. fan is not working or the air ducts/channels/dampers are blocked with ice, food, etc. then no cool air will get from the freezer to the frige area. Check all the air channels and to see if the dampers are open along with the circulation fan running. The diagrams at the following link should help you see inside better. If your lower circulation fan is running then you likely have an air return/supply channel blocked with ice and will require an old style defrost (unplug unit and leave doors open for 24 hours to melt ice, etc.). If the fan isn't running then that needs to be replaced. Air channels can freeze up if a door is left open slightly overnight or other moisture enters the freezer/frige.
