Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Ok so if all the fans are running and the compressor is running and its not cooling then the sealed system on the unit has developed a freon leak and is not cooling. The only way to repair that is have a licensed company come in find the leak repair it , and recharge the unit with freon. However the cost of such a repair is not gonna be justified on a unit that old. My advice at this point is to replace the refrigerator.
