First, I would I would like to thank you for reading my post. Last year, my refrigerator and freezer were not cooling. I noticed the condenser coil fan spinning very slowly with very hot condenser coils. I replaced the fan motor and it fixed my issue.

Now a year later, my fridge and freezer are not cooling again. The compressor is very hot and both the condenser coil fan and the evaporator fan in freezer are running. I unplugged my fridge for a couple of days and it worked for a week until there same issue of poor cooling. Also, there is no ice build up in the evaporator coils.

Any suggestions for troubleshooting this issue? I vaguely remember doing some Ohm testing of the mother board and it being OK then. However, I am unable to find the same troubleshooting info.

...The compressor is very hot and both the condenser coil fan and the evaporator fan in freezer are running.
... there is no ice build up in the evaporator coils

1) is the Compressor running, ? OR just click, pause, click, ?
2) no frost on the Evaporator Coils inside the Freezer ?

Thanks for the reply!
Of course it's cold this morning. I opened the doors and pushed the turbo cool button to get compressor to run (humming and slight vibration).

There is a small amount of surface frost on evaporator coils after being on overnight. One small section (2-3 could has larger crystals growing about 1 cm thick).
