First thing to check would be the start relay located on the compressor if you are able to do electrical tests click this link to see how to test the start relay http://www.ehow.com/how_4504012_test-refrigerators-compressor-relay.html if you are unable to perform these tests I would suggest that you call a repair technician it is always safe when it comes to electricity to leave it to someone who has been trained how to test these systems if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick

The fan is not coming on and the refrigerator is not staying very cold


I assume you are talking about the freezer fan. The modern fan motors can just stop working. Remove the back panel and spin the blade. If it turns, the motor is probably bad. This would cause the entire refrigerator not to get very cold.

sounds like the system is either low or out of refrigerant. There is a low pressure switch in the system to shut it down in the event of freon loss. First , verify , then test for a freon leak. Once repaired, and recharged, will blow cold air again.

Refridgerator Not Cooling


If top is compleatly warm it is probley the fan motor, lot of failures on them. Replacement one will be a different looking motor. Verify motor is not turning, located in the back of the freezer in the top middle, behind small grill. Will see fan blade pointed up, should run whenever compressor is on.
