Hello. Yes, it sounds like the cooling unit is bad and not circulating. You can sometimes visually see a yellow crusty looking substance at the rear of the refrigerator near where the burner box is on the lower right side. this is where usually the ammonia solution leaks out of the coils.

Thanks I'll check for that in the morning

Even if you don't see any yellow, it could of had a small leak somewhere else, if inside the box of the refer.....you can sometimes smell a faint hint of ammonia in the freezer or refer box. The gurgling or bubbling sound means some of the fluid that is left in the coils is boiling hot, so don't leave it running for a long time now.
