Both fans are working. Compressor is humming and very hot to the touch. Attached is pic of evaporator coils. Neither freezer or frig are getting cold enough. Thank you!

You have a restricted drier. Requires a sealed system repair like dab said. Would probably cost $400 or more to have a technician fix.
