I came home after a long weekend away to find my fridge warm. It still runs, lights up when I open the door, and looks and sounds the same way it has for months. It just doesn't cool! If anything, it was actually heating up! I've looked for repair suggestions, but they all seem to focused on full size refrigerators. This one doesn't have any grill on the front, and the only exposed parts are on the back at the bottom. I can upload pictures if that would help, since I don't know what exactly I'm looking for. I'm not sure what's wrong or what I can do. Thank you for your help.

Feel the compressor to see if it is running.  If so you have a compressor/sealed system problem which would not be worth fixing unless under warranty.  If it is not running see where you have lost the power to it, like the cold control, wire to the compressor, start relay, over load.  This is just a smaller version of any full sized non-frost free frig.

Thank you for your quick reply. The compressor makes a slight vibration and is quite warm to the touch. I guess this is a problem I can't fix. :(

Unless it is under warranty, will cost lots less to replace the unit.
