The compressor is on but how do you determine if the compressor is pumping and how to determine if the freon is low or out; without putting access vales on the copper lines?

Open the freezer compartment, remove the evaporator cover and check the frost pattern. Post a picture of it here if you can. Your make and model number of the refrigerator would help in troubleshooting.

unfortunately, this happened about a month ago and I wasn't aware of this site. But there was not a frost pattern at all, the fridge and freezer compartments were room temperature. Both fans were on and the compressor was on.

Then you have a leak in the sealed system, not worth repairing unless you paid over $2,000 for the unit or unless it's a built in.
