You can confirm this if you touch the condenser and after 1 hour you had switch it on, then the temperature of condenser should be about 130-140 F. If it is less than 120 F then you had a Freon leak.
Loss of the refrigerant charge will also cause the compressor to overheat. It is the cool return gas coming back to the compressor that helps to keep it from overheating.
There are also many other things that can go wrong with your fridge and I have not come close to exhausting the possibilities here. I have just touched on the most common problems in a very basic way.
There are some basic trouble shooting things that can be done very easily. Most problems are above out of the range of comfort for many homeowners and professional help should be consulted before any attempt is made at repairs. Remember also, that the release of refrigerant gases into the atmosphere is a federal offense in the US. Proper care must always be taken to minimize the release of any gases. A license is also required to handle refrigerants. Make sure that the professional you call has the proper certifications to handle refrigerants properly
If the compressor and the fan, both are running and there is no cooling then the gas has leaked out somehow. It has to refilled by the fridge mechanic.

It sounds like you have a restriction. Sometimes if you unplug the refrigerator for 24 hours or so it will break loose. If it doesn't then you will have to call in a repair tech to fix it. ...

Hi Chris,The problem would seem to be that you developed a small leak in the refrigeration system. This is also assuming that you checked and cleaned the condenser coils which are underneath the fridge. Excessive dirt could also cause thi ...

Hotpoint HSS25IFMCC / HSS25IFMWW Side by Side Refrigerator
On a Jenn-Air JRT192 fridge/freezer, should the fans run continously? We have one that seems to hum continously, but when we pulled the fridge out, the condenser fan wasn't running. Don't know about the evaporator fan as I can't see it. Pulled it out to clean the coils, as the sides and top of freezer, and sides of fridge are sometimes very warm to hot (only notice in the front 1/4 of unit). Wondering if we have a problem. Can't find a manual online.
Replace or, reset your frost control; your schematic on the back of the refrigerator will show you the location. ...

Amana ARS266ZBS Side by Side Refrigerator
Fridge Problems I have a Frigidaire side-by-side. In the last two weeks or so, I noticed that it (motor?) would cycle a few times, then run or shut off. Four days ago, it stopped running (except the fan that cools the coils, it still ran intermittently) and everything thawed in freezer and fridge. After I cleaned out all the spoiled food, it started again, and was running normal. Now, it shut down again yesterday, I threw out all my food again, and now this morning, it's running (cooling) again.
What model and make is it ...
My freezer temp registers 28 - 36, I cleaned out coils, I notice that there is a fan in the back bottom right side, not sure what should make that run. My Ice is slowly melting. I had the freezer setting at 0 degrees. What makes the freezer temp run so high, Fridge adn Freezer doors are closed all day. Moderate use in the evenings.
That fan behind the refrig , is the fan that cools the compressor . It should be running any time the compressor runs . If not running , replace it . The center divider between the fridge and freezer ( front strip ) should be getting hot to the touch ...

I have a kitchenaid, KSRS25RSMS01, refrigerator and the freezer is fine and the fridge is not cooling. I have checked the evaporator and it has normal frost, and the fan is turning fine, but the air coming out into the fridge is not as cold as the air coming off the fan. The coils under the fridge are clean and the compressor is running fine. What could be wrong?

I have a side by side fridge that quit cooling (freezer and fridge) yesterday. the compressor is hot on the top and sounds like it is running. i turned it off for 24 hours to see if it was possibly frozen. i did not have any water and still will not cool (it does have self defrost). condensing coils are clean and fan is blowing. when i turn the temp to off for the fridge side and then turn it back on i initially get a clicking noise that comes from where the interior fan is housed, but the noise

Frigidaire 22.6 Cu. Ft. Counter Depth Side-by-Side Refrigerator - Stainless-Steel
Freezer not freezing. Especially on the top shelves. I can somewhat feel air coming out on the lower shelf just above the drawers but on the top shelf I feel nothing. Cleaned the coils and vents checked to make sure the compressor fan was operating and it is. Fridge side seems to be okay. The freezer is definitely the problem side. Looking at the control panel on the back of the fridge there are 2 red LED's that are lit. One says LED1 (this was not lit until I unplugged the unit for about 1

Samsung RS265TDBP Side by Side Refrigerator
Model# 596.58642891 freezer side thawed first and now the fridge side is warm. The fan is running constant and adjusting the temp controls has no effect. The doors are sealing and the coils and fan are clean. It's been 4 days and when I removed the back panel the compressor was very warm to the touch. The ice maker works but its not cold enough to make ice and the food in the fridge side has spoiled.
I humbly disagree with Sea Breeze. We know the thermostat (cold control) is working because the fans are running and the compressor is hot to the touch. So we're getting power to the compressor. Now, only TWO things will keep the compressor from firi ...
I purchased a used GE Profile TFX22PP Side by Siide which was working perfectly. I transported the item to my home, cleaned it, vaccummed the borrom coil and plugged it in. The unit has been running for about 14 hours and it is not cooling. The fan comes on, I believe I hear the compressor kick-in but the thermometer I placed into the Fridge (1 in the freezer side and one in the main side) are reading 78 Degrees. Lights come on, Fan is running and I believe the compressor also. What now?
Amana BRF20 Cabinet depth Refrigerator (Bottom Freezer). Freezer not consistently staying cold. Will make ice one day but two days later it will be half thawed.
A couple days ago:

This has not appeared to help, still inconsistent cooling.
2. Took inside freezer rear panel off and no ice on any of the blades (not a frost free problem). Fan is running and appears to be circulating cold air

KitchenAid model no. KSRS22FGBL03
Fridge is not cooling; freezer side is ok. No cold air being blown into fridge from top or vent in about the middle of the demising wall between freezer and fridge; even when cold air IS being blown into freezer. Compressor seems hot when running and freezer is cooling; even with an external small fan blowing on it to help it out. Normal cooling fan adjacent to compressor is running. Coils are dust free for the most part.
