Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. Sorry to hear that you are having this trouble. Have you tried unplugging your appliance for 5 minutes to do a hard reset yet? If unplugging is not easy to do turning off the breaker for 5 minutes does the same thing.

The refrigerator side is working
Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 4 months ago

Y​es I understand but if the fan is not running and the compressor is running hot its only a matter of time before the fridge temp drops as well. That is why I am trying to figure out if its just a fan or something more.

Compressor not hot
Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 4 months ago

ok ​so what we need to do is take the back wall on the inside of the freezer panel off to see what is going on in there. If its ice built up and to check the fan out. The fan should run when the door is shut and stop when the door is open.

Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 4 months ago

honestly I know it sounds hard but its not hard at all. This is something simple you can check.

you will see vents in the wall and most of the time you just push up and out to get the panel out. If it has a couple screws remove them and then push up and out.
