Our LG refrigerator wasn't cooling either. With ours it turned out to be that the light wasn't turning off when the door was closed! It seemed unbelievable at first, but the heat from the light bulbs was heating the whole refrigerator section to just about the same temp as the outside room. Here's the key, 'though. If this is the case, the fridge section is warm, but the freezer is cold.

looks as evaporator fan is working. have you ever clean condensor under the fridge. possibility it is pluged with dust and not allowing compressor to cool down. Also check the fan at the back of the fridge beside the compressor. see if it is working
Hello Could be a few things.Usually low freon will cause cooling to stop. Also a bad compressor will do the same thing. Check that the condensor unit outside is running,fan turning and you should hear the compressor running. Check any circut breakers and fuses for being blown or off also.
The outside unit also may need to be cleaned,do this with a water hose and a product called simple green.Spray the simple green on the fins leave on for 5 min then rinse with a hose and water.
There may be a manual reset high limit... look for a red button on a round part hooked to the small copper line and push it in hard...
Also the compressor may have kicked the overload and needs a few hours to cool and it reset, that is interanl insdie the compressor.
Contactor may also have went bad...

Its Most Likely Lost Its Freon Or The Compressor Seals Are No Good When The Unit Is On See If You Hear A Whirling Sound Alot Like Your Fridge. Put Your Hand On The Compressor To See If Its Vibrating ( Looks Like A Metal Ball) If It Is Have A Ac Repair Place Check The Freon To See If It Has Run Out Or Is Low. If It Doesn't Feel Like Its Running Have Them Check The Compressor For You. Cooling System Components Should Not Be Serviced By Anyone Who Has Not Been Properly Trained To Deal With Freon. Sincerely, Michael Scott
3 most common things that cause this are a defrost problem (will notice frost build up on back freezer panel), bad evaporator fan motor (should hear fan running in the freezer), or bad damper (vent to the fridge section). If no frost and fan is running check for air flow out of the vent. It should be at the top of the fridge section.
