If there is no cooling at all , before we go further we must confirm the first step of confirming the compressor and gas pressure. So shut off the fridge and leave it off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge. If there is no ice formation we have a big issue as the compressor and gas must be checked out. If compressor is running check the pressure, get help to test gas pressure. If not you will need to fill up ,If gas pressure is good the possibility of the compressor being inefficient is high. In such a case you must take consensus to estimate and decide, if RPM of motor is low check capacitor.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test from the outside and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

Not cooling properly


Hello,

First thing- set the controls at the mid range of their settings. Next, check the coils under the fridge to see if they are clogged with dust, etc. Next, using a couple stem thermometers, determine the temps in the freezer and fresh food sections. In the fresh food section, place a tall glass of water on a shelf in the middle, put the thermometer in and let it set for awhile in the fridge. Inside the fresh food section, look for the damper opening at the top of the wall in between the two sections. Wet the back of your fingers- can you feel air blowing through the damper opening? Inside the freezer section, look at the back wall- any frost buildup there.

Hope this help.....

Freezer works but fresh food seems warm


If you have frost on the back wall of the freezer compartment you have a defrost problem. When the freezer coil does not defrost the refrigerator does not get air for cooling.

Indiset Fridge not cooling


If the compressor is running and not cooling then there is no refrigerant circulating in the refrigerator or no air moving across the one or both coils. No ice in the freezer section indicates that no cooling is taking place at all, pointing to a lack of refrigerant rather than poor air circulation due to a bad fan or frozen coil.
You can try a manual defrost to ensure it's not a frozen coil by unplugging the unit for several hours with doors open then starting it again. If there is still no cooling occurring you need to check the refrigerant level. If its low you will have to find and seal the leak, pressure test with nitrogen, evacuate and weigh in the correct amount and type of refrigerant listed on the unit.
Hope this helps, needless to say be sure to find a reputable qualified technician to open and service your refrigerant circuit this will make or break your unit.
