refrigerator not cooling


Amana side-by-side has stopped cooling . The lights are on, the fan is running. But neither side is cooling. I thought it might be the relay switch.

On a frost free fridge, if the evaporator fan is blowing air through the freezer compartment, then the compressor SHOULD be getting power as well. If the compressor isn't running, I'd suspect the start relay too.

How old is it? Do you hear a buzz followed by a click every 5 or ten minutes?
