It will not cool at all. I came home after a vacation to find the fridge at room temp. I unplugged it for a while and it will not do anything when I plug it back in. The LG compressor in the back will get really hot when I plug it in now. Anyone know what the deal is? Thanls

How to check
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper)
between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through
it.There is a flap you adjust with the
fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer
are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of
cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In
most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.
If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
sounds like the compressor or relay went out. if the compressor is hot turn off and let cool to room temp. and try it then [a few hours] , if it is not hot then replace the relay on the compressor.
Yes very likely the cooling unit has stopped working. You need to do a bypass test by unplugging the thermistor on the inside of fridge. It will be attached to the fins. Give it 6 hours or so and check your temps. If they are the same the cooling unit is bad. If the temp goes down the thermistor or circuit board is bad.

The most likely fault is a problem with the defrost cycle. The most likely is the defrost heater which should be a solid bar which is located directly underneath the coil. If you are capable then you can generally unplug the connectors for the heater and check that you have a resistance across the ends if the heater is faulty it will be open circuit. If it is not open circuit then it could be the defrost sensor or defrost timer at fault. You can also generally tell if the heater is warped or cracked. Hope this is of some help.
