I originally thought it was thermostat related b/c after I had plugged the fridge back in, the freezer was semi freezing things. Then it got warm completely. I could hear a clicking noise in the back and the compressor never turned on. I ended up not using the thermostats (need to return) and replacing the Overload relay switch instead. I fixed it Sunday, it's now Wednesday and I have a cold fridge and ice in the ice cube trays.
