This is a brand new fridge . I bought it last year. I put it in storage .I have never plugged it until today . I was having g my house built. So that's why I never use it . And put it in storage for a year

OK there is a very good chance the unit had a freon leak and has no freon left in it. I would try to get it covered under warranty as that will be an expensive repair. If the compressor and fans are running and nothing is cooling the freon is out. This is something that you will not be able to repair yourself though.

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, A 5 STAR RATING ALLOWS UNLIMITED FOLLOWUP QUESTIONS AND A DIRECT LINK BACK TO are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!

Is there anything else I can check . I find it hard to believe. That it would be freon . Cuz the ice maker is not working also .plus it does look like it's made an attempt to even try to cool. Is there a code or something. I need to type in??

Are you sure the compressor is running?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I can hear it kick on .
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 6 months ago.

Then it would be cooling something, it is out of gas nothing else would cause that issue nothing and I have seen it many times.
