Fridge not doing too well

Got home from work today and found the fridge door ajar and temp up to 65. Removed all the food and checked the temp in a hour. It was still up to 65. Turned the temp all the way up and checked it two hours later and it was still above 60. Unplugged the thing for 5 minutes to "reset?", checked the bottom coils to make sure they were clean and now waiting to see what happens. Any advice as to what else I can do or check? Thanks, Mike

I would unplug for a couple of hours and let a fan blow underneath it. The compressor is likely off on thermal. I've seen compressors take quite awhile to cool off and reset.

If the voltage at the outlet doesn't drop two or three volts when you start the fridge, the compressor may not be drawing any current.
