Dependingmon the length of run time will determine the problem. If the compresser cycles on and off within a couple of minutes then you are looking at a bad compresser. If it runs for 5-10 minutes then cycles off, you have a plugged off condenser or dead condenser fan motor, in which case do not run the fridge until the motor is replaced and cleaned. If the compresser runs for hour or so with no cooling effect then you may have a plugged off cap tube which means a repair man will need to take care of that. If the compresser cycles every 10-30min with a little cooling in the freezer then you are looking at a bad thermostat.
Hope this helps
Could be a few problems. What I would do is check to see if the compresser is running by pulling out the fridge and pulling the back panel off and putting your hand on the compresser. If it Is vibrating then it is running. If it is not vibrating but very hot then the compresser is dead and needs to be replaced. If the compresser Is cool and not running I would say the thermostat inside the fridge is dead(bad contacts in the control). If the compresser is running but no cooling, the cap tube which is the metering device for the refrigerant into the freezer evaperator could be plugged off. Or if none of the lines off of the compresser are hot or cold then the valves inside the compresser are gone and compresser needs to be replaced
hope this helps
Defrost timer should be located at the back of the fridge at the bottom around the compresser, it is usually a little black box. Is the evaperator in the freezer iced up? If it is not, I would check the thermostat for proper operation or the compresser. If the compresser is very hot and not running, your compresser is on its way out, but if it is running and there is a hot line and cold line coming off of the compresser then I would say you have a plugged cap tube ( the metering device that gos into the evaperator in the freezer). In which case a repair man needs to cut about six inches off of it and re fill the refrigerant.
Sound as though your defrost timer is gone.Not sure what model you have to tell you where to look.If you do locate it turn the timer manuly with flat head screw driver to try and start.If you have electronic defrost you will need a board.But i think you should cheak your start relay locted on your compresser first.remove and shake it and see if it sounds fried.
you need to check if the compresser is red hot if so change the relay to a 3 and 1 overload relay very easy to in stall trick put a floor fan pointed at the compresser let it run a while see if you notice a difference
Sorry to hear you had so many problems. but DONT LET THAT GUY NEAR YOUR REFRIGERATOR!! If he indeed replaced the compresser it should have come with a new start relay and overload that would have been installed at the time the compresser was replaced. the kit he put on was a Hard start kit for compressers having problems staerting up .....but you stated he Just replaced the compresser right? so why should you need a hard start kit installed? the compresser may not be installed properly or the coreect freon charge placed in the unit. or has a leak in his solder joints but by no means should you have to install a hard start kit on a NEW compresser Hope this helps you. BTW Did he give you any Warrty.? if so you should not pay him anything until he fixes the problem
