Amana BCI20TW, about 20 years old. All of a sudden, I'm getting 48F in the fridge section and 28F in the freezer. The circulating fans in both are running fine. I pulled the panel at the freezer, no ice at all on coils. Defrost tube is cold when not in defrost mode. Compressor isn't making any funny noises, seems to be running fine and the blower in the rear is moving air like it should. Nothing seems to be wrong other than the temperatures. What do I need to check here? Thanks!

The compressor is shot. Seems to be a very common problem on Amana bottom mount machines. The repair costs would exceed the machines value.
