Hi, it sounds like it's stuck in defrost? You can manually advance the defrost timer and see if the fans and compressor come on they both should. We work on the honor system here at Just Answers.

How do I manually advance the defrost timer? Where is it located?
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 1 year ago.
Is this a bottom mount freezer?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. Top mount freezer.
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 1 year ago.
It's inside the refrigerator section normally by the control knob. It can also be on the back. What is the complete model number from the sticker on the inside wall of the refrigerator section? Thanks
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Model #th2153w
Mfg no. P1195606ww

I'm not able to pull up a parts diagram of this model. It must be to old? Have you looked inside the refrigerator section behind the panel where the controls are? It's either there or on the back. Bottom mount freezers its always on the bottom front behind the toe kick. We work on the honor system here at Just Answers. Were not credited for our work until you rate our answers positively.

I'll check those locations.
The re fridge is another location than where I am currently.
It was bought new in 1995-1996.
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 1 year ago.
That's new enough there should be a parts look up. It's going to be in one of those places.

Ok. So I find it, then what?
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 1 year ago.
Turn the middle of it with a flat head. It should go into cool mode. You'll see the spot to twist.
