Sounds like a defrost problem. remove back freezer panel and look for ice on coils which restricts air to the Ref.
Take your mod number to an appliance parts store and they will sell the parts to fix the defrost system. Most all parts are in behind freezer Panel at the coils.

Kenmore refrigerator making high pitch noise top front


could be the ice maker or the evaporator fan motor.you can try lifting the arm up on the ice maker and see if it stops,this will shut off the ice maker.also when you open the freezer door to lift the arm on the ice maker the evap fan motor should start when you open the door,you should hear it blowing around,is this the noise you hear?these are the two things i can think of that could make a noise up top,if not it could be the compressor or the condenser fan motor but these are down the bottom back of machine but still could be the problem,if the ice maker and evap fan motor both in the freezer are ok pull out the machine and remove the bottom back panel and check to see if the noise is coming from there where the condenser fan motor and compressor are,you're going to have to do some detective work to find the noise,hope this helps you out.

MAKE SURE THE FANS ARE RUNNING FREEZER AND COMPRESSOR, THEN CHECK THE BACK WALL OF THE FREEZER IF ITS FROSTED UP YOU HAVE A DEFROST ISSUE. IF THE COMPRESSOR AND FANS ARE WORKING AND NO FROST IN THE FREEZER THATS NOT A GOOD THING..

Refrigerator stoped cooling


Ok, if the unit compressor will not run and just clicks on and then off, this will confirm a low charge state ad you will need to recharge this unit. the refrigerant level is low.

Purchasing a recharge kit and recharging the system will fix this issue.

Generally speaking if the refrigerator does not cool and you have frost on the back wall of the freezer it suggests a defrost problem.
However since the refrigerator started working by itself it would point to an air circulation problem from the fan in the freezer compartment failing to operate. The frost on the back wall without the fan operating would cause frost buildup because the heat is still trying to get to the coil through the back wall. If your refrigerator freezer has a door fan light switch something holding the door partly open would cause the fan not to operate. Look for a button or toggle and manually push it in. You should hear the fan turn on and the light will go off.
