Is It Continuousley Running Or Dose It Run For A Very Short Time Then Stop?

is it a fridge freezer? If so, you may need to defrost the freezer. Most fridge freezers now days, although advertised as being frost free, often get a build up of ice behind the back panel in the freezer. If this has happened, the cool air cannot get up to the fridge compartment

Have you accidentally knocked the temperature dial inside (if yurs has got one) onto 0?

Would guess the thermostat has gone or gas pressure leak. Have a look at the back there will be a round gas unit does it have a pipe with a tap? If it does it may be worth getting somebody out to look at it as they can check thermostat or if it is the gas, seal the leak and top up the gas. If its a sealed gas unit (small pipe off it, braised shut) it's probably going to be most economical just to buy a new one.

Problem: Refrigerator runs constantly but doesn't get cold.
Solution: Check the thermostat dial and make sure it's not on the warmest setting. The condenser coils may be clogged. Remove the bottom front or rear panel and vacuum under the refrigerator. Try to reach as far as possible with the extension wand to clean the coils. If neither of these solved the problem, here are a few others to check.

* Condenser fan is blocked -- Remove the rear panel and remove whatever is blocking the fan. Clean any other debris while it's open.
* The door may not be closing all the way -- Check to make sure the fridge is level. If it's not, there are legs with threads underneath that you can screw/unscrew to the desired effect. Also, check the door hinges to make sure everything is lining up right.
* The door's gasket may be bad -- To replace the gasket, lift the gasket and unscrew the holding screws. As you remove the old gasket, feed the new one into place and tighten down the screws.
* Door switch may be bad -- If the switch is bad, the light will stay on inside and keep things warm. The switch can be pried out with a flat screwdriver. Remove the leads and set your VOM to RX1. Clip the probes on the terminals and you should read zero with the switch open. Close the switch by pressing the plunger; the reading should be infinity. If not, replace.
* Evaporator fan could be bad -- Remove the back panel on the inside of the freezer. Unscrew the fan housing and remove the leads from the fan. Probe the two terminals with your VOM set to RX1. If you get a reading under 50 ohms, or an infinity reading, replace the fan.
* Condenser fan could be bad -- The condenser fan is located underneath the fridge. Access is easiest through the rear bottom panel. Disconnect the leads and follow the same instructions as the evaporator fan.
* Refrigerant may need to be replaced -- For this, a professional should be called due to all the environmental laws surrounding refrigerant removal

If it was the thermostat failing to switch the fridge on, then the fridge would just sit there silently. But you say that it's making all the right noises so I doubt that it is the thermostat,
