Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath the fridge is running.
Is the compressor motor near that fan running.
Are the coils warm ,cold or hot.

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. stopped up? clear? ice in one spot . frost everywhere.

Note any noise you can hear when you try to turn the unit on after being turned off for 10 minutes.

If ok check compressor.

Default Same problem

I just had the same thing happen a few days ago. We smelled something burning though right before it happened. Compressor maybe? Someone else suggested the fan. Any ideas? Thanks!
