I was vacumming the coils under my whilpool side by side when I believe I heard a faint whistle along with a odorless thin white smoke that stayed low to the ground. The compressor is hot to the touch, yet the freezer is holding at 0. The center dividing wall where both doors meet and seal side by side is hot to the touch. All tubing is hat or warm as well. The back is cold though and the air flow is cold. Did I puncture the coil and have a R134 leak? Should I shut down the unit?

We are having problems with the compressor heating up and the colling fan to the compressor not going on. Also, when you open the doors (either door) you can feel that the strip between the two sections is quite hot....like something underneath that area is heating up as well. This is on the strip facing you, and the heat runs from top to bottom. It does not feel hot inside either unit.

Have thermostat set to 46 degrees, display shows fridge is only cooling to 56 degrees. Fans are running. Pulled fridge away from wall. Compressor is hot to the touch. Nothing leaking.
Door to fridge was left open the other night, so was probably running all night trying to cool. Could this have damaged the compressor?
Any ideas for ways to fix it myself, or guidance on whether it will need service, would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, i have a Hotpoint FFA61 Frost Free Fridge/Freezer.
Recently the freezer has dropped temperature and the freezer temperature too high warning light is constantly on.

Amana ARB220RCW Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Found the unit circulator fan running but not cool in the freezer or fresh food compartment. I unplugged and replugged and the compressor started running shortly. I checked the frost-free feature already (clicked the light switch in the fresh food compartment 5 times in 6 seconds). I took the cover off the back of the cabinet and the compressor is now hot, but not too hot to touch. The unit is just not cooling off very quickly. I know the compressor is only 1.1 to 1.6 amps and that's not much. I
