Question about Refrigerators
First are the evap coils one big ice block? if so melt the ice and look for a air gap in the door gasket. the comp. turns on so the thermostat is sending the signal to turn on. on these the drain from the evap (cold part/ top) could be blocked. blocked drain, water sits, then freezes and blocks air flow

SOURCE: not cooling
hi thanks for the question is the compressor running hot if its not hot and the fan by the compressor is running the problem is that the compressor is not starting check the compressor you might need a new start relay mounted on the compressor thanks the appliance doc

check the thermostat for proper setting, evap could be frozen up, the condenser fan could not be running, unit could be low on freon. start check some items and let me know.

How To Test the Compressor Relay
The compressor relay's purpose is to
start the compressor. A faulty relay can result in the compressor
failing to cycle on. The relay is accessed from the lower rear of the
relay is located in the terminal box which is located at the side of the compressor.
Before testing a compressor relay, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard. Also, if the compressor uses a capacitor, it must be discharged first to avoid the risk of electrical shock.
Beneath the terminal cover is found the compressor relay , overload protector and the electrical terminals of the compressor motor.
Remove the compressor relay by pulling it straight off from the compressor.
Pull the wire off of the side terminal of the relay. It is connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
Inspect the connector and terminal for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.
There are two types of relays you may encounter, wire coil and solid state. If the relay has an exposed wound wire coil it can be tested for continuity. Otherwise, the relay is of solid state design and requires specialized equipment for testing.
