The fan is running after I tuned the temp to 9. There is no frost in the back of Refrig. There are 2 black tanks. I assume for the freon. one of them is hot to the touch.

you are low on freon in the fresh food side, its a sealed system issue, very common on these, there are two compressors in this on for the freezer and one for the fresh food, you will need an HVAC certified tech to fix this, sorry. hate giving bad news. thanks Bryan
