If you are getting a hum for about 5-10 seconds followed by a click, tht is the compressor short cycling. You may have a bad compressor relay, or the compressor itself could be bad. If the frost your seeing is on the back wall of the fredezer that could indicate a defrost problem.

Freezer cold but not fridge


too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.

Fridge not cold


Sounds like your fridge is running out of gas,, Call a Aircondition or Refrigation technician and let him re gas it for you...

It cant be frost cause it sould have affected your freezer not your refrigation unit.. Normall when gas is running low the first thing that is affedt is the refrifgation section ,, the freezer shows signs a few days / weeks later and eventualluy stops cooling all together... RE GAS IT FAST BEFORE IT BURNS YOUR COMPRESSOR OUT..

Fridge running but not staying cold


you have a defrost problem, if SxS ref. most likely bad defrost heaters. They are behind interior back wall. Sounds like you have a GE.
