If you hear the whir of a fan as well as the hum of a motor, but the fridge contents are not cold, you likely have a problem with your condenser coils. A pro will find and repair any leaks.
Too much heat behind the fridge can lead to bigger problems and should be attended to quickly. A pro will assess if the compressor start relay and assess if the entire compressor unit is shot.
This is tricky to find the cause and a pro knows what to look for. It could be a shorted component within the fridge, frayed wire, bad compressor or moisture buildup around the outlet.
A sizzle from the freezer and a pop from the fridge's condenser fan are normal throughout the life of the appliance. However, if you start to hear these sounds often, it is time to hire a pro.
If you have checked the circuit breakers and have made sure the fridge is plugged in to a non-grounded outlet but it is still not working, a pro will diagnose the problem.
