Good day,
Check in the freezer compartment to see if you can hear the fan motor running. They will freeze up if left off for extended periods of time.
Another fan motor on the bottom back near the compressor can suffer the same fate.
If both check O.K. Then since it's under 5 years you could have a refrigerant leak or a compressor problem that is under factory warranty.
Call your selling dealer for service.

Freezer wont work after defrosted


Please keep in mind, I'm attempting to diagnose you appliance without being there and with very little info. Thanks
If the sound is a double click, then after about 2 or 5 Min's another double click. You have a bad capacitor.
If it's a low hum. It sounds to me like you have a low side leak in your freon sealed system. When you unplug the unit, the freon pressures equalize. This put higher pressure on the low side of the system than it has when it's running. If you have a low side leak, it will drain out under the higher pressure.
NOTICE
(Industury standard- 5 year warranty on all sealed systems) This means that if your unit is less than five years old and it is a sealed system problem. (Freon leak, Compressor) The factory will cover parts and labor. You should not need a receipt if it's less than 4 years old.

Cold but not frozen


23 years old ? That thing was costing you more than a new unit would cost for the past 5 years!
Assuming your airflows are good, Its time for a new refrigerator.

Wont cool at all


on the compressor there is a device called a thermal overload its the box that plugs on the compressor it might be bad if you have a wire with two aligator clips on it you can jump the terminals on the thermostat as it may be bad if you do that and it starts then the thermostat is bad if this is a self defrost unit then find the defrost timer and turn it slowely clockwise if it starts then the timer is bad
