I heard a loud noise coming from behind my unit and everything seemed to be getting warm and defrosting in the freezer. I pulled the unit away from the wall, cleaned everything I could, put a fan blowing on it. The noise seemed to stop and the freezer appears to be freezing still, but the fridge is warm. I do not hear any fan noise now but it does not seem to be keeping things cold in the fridge part.
ANSWER Hello Richard. Check and see if the unit has a defrost issue. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
