Question about Refrigerators
Lights come on and evaporator fan in freezer section runs. Fan in condenser section runs. The lights blink when power goes to the compressor but they quickly blink again like the compressor is trying to turn on but can't. Is this an indication that the compressor starter may be defective or the compressor may itself may be defective?
If the compressor is extremely hot, it could be seized, if this is the case you would have to have a new one installed.

the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the freezer (
evaporator) fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils under the
unit for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan (under the unit) to see if
it is running.
If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling the freezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked.
can be many factors for the no cooling factor: the condenser coils could be
blocked with dust, the condenser fan could be bad or stuck, the freezer fan
could be stuck or bed, the freezer coils could be blocked with frost because
the self-defrost system is not working or the compressor is not running because
of a bad relay etc.
