Hi my name is Robert...

The cooling unit has failed and would need to be replaced. A new cooling unit can be installed but that is going to cost more then 1/2 of what a new fridge will cost. The labor is more as well to replace the cooling unit. In the shop it takes about 4 hours to replace the cooling unit vs 1.5 hours swapping the fridge out. I would consider a new one as you will get a warranty and not have to worry about other components failing... Hope this helps some, If you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me, follow ups are included.... Robert
