Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.
Did you try setting the temp control to a lower setting?
Is the fridge in direct sunlight? If so move it or shade it.
Can you hear the compressor running?

the temperature is set at full bar (coldest) The compressor does not turn on. I moved the fridge away from the wall and it's in the shade away from the sunlight

If the compressor does not come on then it will need to be replaced. This work requires a tech with CFC certification and is not something a homeowner can undertake. Find a reputable tech in your area to take care of you.
