Question about Refrigerators
In such situations the compressor takes the beating. I am assuming it is still running but not able to turn the refrigerant around.
Have you touched the compressor to feel how hot it is?
You need an external fan to be targetted on the compressor. Not sure why you would aim the hair dryer at evaporator coils - I am assuming you were tyring to cool these and not heat up.
Unplug the fridge and leave for 30 minutes or so until the compressor feels cold enough to touch.
The other possibility is the freezer (I don't know model of your fridge) may have ice builtup and if it is auto defrost would have gone into defrost mode. Raise the freezer temperature setting to get the fridge out of defrost.
The worst case scenario is that the refrigerant is leaked and you may have to recharge the fridge assuming the compressor is still running.
