I have been away for a week on travel and get home to find that both sides are not cooling. Temp in the freezer was around 33F and refer was 52F

I removed the coil cover and there is no frost at all on the coils. The compressor fan is working and the compressor is hot.

I tried pushing the Lighting and Energy Saver buttons per the troubleshooting instructions from the label on the back of the unit. No LED flashes to indicate any problems.

Does anyone have any idea what to try next?

Thanks

You have a sealed system problem, seen this many times on my service calls.

The sealed system consists of the compressor, condenser, evaporator, heat exchanger, filter/drier and refrigerant.

Common problems with a sealed system are bad compressors, refrigerant leaks, and system restrictions.

Sealed system repair costs will often exceed the machines value.

Time to go refrigerator shopping IMO.
