I have a 6 yr old Samsung Side by Side refrigerator. Couple of days before there was some noise when the compressor was running and then the items in the freezer started melting and the freezer stopped working. I opened the back panel andno ice or anything but a little dust. I cleaned the dust but still the freezer doesnt work. When I click on the close button the freezer, I hear a fan starting to run but no cold air or anything. It is at room temperature now.
Now from today, the fridge is loosing chillness and when I checked the compressor, it was hot but the fan near the compressor is running. The compressor is still running with the noise no issues but the fridge is loosing chillness. I have kept a standing fan near the compressor to cool it and I find the fridge temperature slightly better but still not normal.
Any suggestions or troubleshooting tips is appreciated.
