If the freezer is also not cooling, then you probably have a problem in the compressor area, either it's not getting switched on, or it's defective. If the freezer (not side by side) is working, then you may have ice build up between the freezer and the fridge. Just unplug it and let the ice thaw.

Hope that helps

Danby Refrig DFFC1WDB, two years old, in my vacation home that I visit one weekend a month. Lights flashing, power cycled (after req'd 5 mins). Discovered coils were packed with ice. See below: 1.) Danby Refrigerator DFFC1WDB, about two years old, in my vacation home that I visit one weekend a month 2.) Never defrosted it manually before (i.e. turned off and left to defrost) 3.) For some time I noticed the light inside the fridge was flashing, but the refrigerator seemed to be cooling okay and the manual says nothing about what the flashing light means. I attributed it to a power failure and the flashing stops once the unit is unplugged and plugged back in (power cycled) after 5 minutes or so. 4.) This visit I noticed the flashing lights again and that the freezer was cold (it was heavily loaded) but fridge was barely cool. I power cycled the fridge (allowing 5 minutes) and the flashing stopped but I was concerned about the issue and threw out some food. 5.) I unplugged the unit again and removed everything from the freezer. I noticed a thick coating of ice on the freezer back wall. I used a hair dryer to melt this coating of ice and then realized that the coils behind this wall must be covered in ice. I removed the back wall exposing the coils and discovered that I was correct: The coils were completely covered/packed with ice, so I greatly sped up the melting process with the hair dryer. After all, I had food sitting in coolers with ice and wanted to return it to the freezer and fridge asap. 6.) Once all the ice was gone I left the freezer open for a while for the coils and assembly to cool (since I had used a hair dryer to melt away the ice pack) 7.) I set the freezer and fridge to their coldest settings and plugged it back in. The lights do not flash when I plugged it back in. The compressor (I assume) ran for a while (the fan in the freezer ran also), and during this time I heard the unit lightly buzzing (with life), and then it stopped. But it seemed to have quite a way to go when it stopped and the freezer and fridge were not nearly cold enough at that point. I surmised that it might be entering one of its periodic defrosting periods, but after quite a while of waiting it still hadn't started running again so I power cycled the unit again and again the compressor/fan ran for a while and then stopped. It just doesn't seem to be starting on its own unless I power cycle it (waiting the required 5 minutes before plugging it back in.) At this point I don't have confidence that it is cooling well enough to keep my food fresh (and frozen). 8.) What do you think could be wrong? It certainly seems reasonable that the part/system responsible for periodically defrosting the coils may have failed. But since the unit is completely defrosted now, why does the unit only run for a short time after unplugging/replugging and never run again?
