is the unit cooling at all? Either the refrigerator or freezer?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
No it is not on either side. It acts as if it wants to run but cannot start.

ok so that's exactly right, the HRS means that your compressor can't start up. Unfortunately this means you need to replace the compressor itself. You can unplug the unit for 24 hours and let the compressor cool down and see if it will start up when you plug it back in, then that means you need to order and replace the compressor.
