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

At a paid site an online tech told me the compressor was broken and had to be replaced (a $200-400 fix on a 6 year old $350 fridge). When I checked it this morning the compressor was just warm to the touch, and the fridge was cool, but not up to the correct temperature. I'm not sure if it's related,
