Question about Refrigerators
. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. It may appear burnt or distorted or rattle when you shake it if it's bad. It's the little black squarish thing near or on the compressor.

That can also mean that the starter is broken.which will be a cheaper fix than a new compressor.Also the capacitor can be broken and that will give the same results.

you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

1.My first suggestion, is to clean out the compressor area located at the bottom of the refrigerator. Refrigerator unplugged from power. Remove the cardboard panel from the bottom, (Watch the water line), and use a vacuum. I also bring the refrigerator towards an open door, and use compressed air to blow it out, afterward. You'd be surprised how much gunk builds up here, and how cleaning it out will help your fridge tremendously! (Good tip for air conditioners also. Power unplugged, case cover removed. Use a garden hose to flush the fins out. Let it dry, reinstall the cover) 2.Your refrigerator may be low on Freon. This requires a professional to purge the system, and reinstall Freon and lubricant.

The answer to this question lies in the way the freezer/fridge combo works. The freezer is where the cooling coils are located. Then air is moved over the coils and circulated through the fridge side by a small blower or fan. The problem arises when the air is not circulated for some reason.
The reasons the air is not moving is usually two reasons
The first reason is pretty simple to fix, you simply replace the air circulator and things are good again.
The second reason can be more difficult.
1.The timing device that runs the defrost cycle of the refrigerator is defective.
2.The heater coil that melts the water is shorted or not working
Usually the first thing to check is the heater coil. If there is resistance through the coil then most likely it is still good.
The timing device can be an advanced defrost control board or a mechanical timing device.
If the heater coil checks out to be good then the problem should be the timer.
For most situations, unplugging the refrigerator and allowing it to defrost on it's own will get you going temporarily, till parts can be shipped to you. That will melt the ice and give you a few days or a couple of weeks till it ices up to the point where it will not work again.
So you can see, the problem can usually be traced to one of three things.
