are you getting any cooling at all in the freezer section?

And is the fan in the freezer running?

fan is blowing and no cooling at all

Ok can you get behind the unit and remove the lower inspection cover and let me know if the Condenser fan is running and if the black domed Compressor is running or not ?

Its a smaller fridge no fan and the compressor is in the back lower center. It's vibrating slightly and room temp maybe slighty warm, definitely not hot

Ok so this unit has a static condenser coil up the rear exterior of the unit .

And if the compressor is running but the unit is not cooling , then you have an issue with the units sealed refrigeration system.

Either the compressor is running but not pumping refrigerant or the system has a refrigerant leak

which means either way you would need a EPA certified repair person to work on the unit and it could cost you anywhere from $500 to as much as $800 in parts and labor.

Do you know how old the unit is ?

Fairly new

is it less then 1 year old do you think?

ok so it is out of the warranty period with means your either going to need to have it looked at by a certified repair person or purchase another one .
