Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

This issue means that your compressor is getting too hot and not cooling down. You'll need to pull the refrigerator forward and remove the lower back access panel on the back. The fan next to your compressor is likely not moving so see if something is blocking it. If you find nothing and the fan won't run, you'll need to order and replace that condenser fan motor.
