Question about Refrigerators
The most probable thing is that the compressor has quit and is not moving the gas around that cools it.You can actyually hear the compressor turn on and off you pull out the fridge and listen to it. The compressor is the metal tank at the bottom it may be warm but one of the tubes coming out of it should be cold if it is working properly. Also it could have leaked out all the gas but not likely to happen.
I would say it could be the thermostat but there is a seperate one for the freezer and the fridge and the chances of both of them quittin at the same time is very unusual.
