Thanks for sending the image of the foam. When refrigerators and freezers are manufactured the inner liners are installed in the cabinet. The cabinet is laid on its back and foam is put between the inner liner and the cabinet with pressure. The foam expands as it cools and fills the space between the inner liner and the cabinet. It looks like some foam was probably sprayed into the liner of your refrigerator.

The foam you see would not affect the cooling of the refrigerator.

You should listen to see if the compressor is running and watch the coil you have loose to see if the entire coil coats with frost. If only a portion of the coil coats with frost, the problem is in the sealed refrigeration system. This would not be worth the cost of repairing if that is the case.

If the compressor is not running, you should check the thermostat. If the compressor is humming and clicking, you should check the start relay.

If you have more questions, reply on this thread and I will be glad to help.

Jimmy, Thank you for your advice. I plugged the refrigerator and all I hear is a click sound every few minutes. But nothing else. And the refrigerator does not cool at all. Does it have freon that needs to be replaced. Or do you think it would be worth checking the compressor? I don't know why it won't cool off at all. You mentioned to check the "start Delay" what and where is that located, because I cannot find it in or behind the fridge. Thank you once again for your help!

Adrian, the start relay plugs onto the electrical terminals of the compressor. Disconnect power to the refrigerator and remove the plastic cover on the side of the compressor. The only way to test the relay is to replace it. If the problem is in the compressor instead of the relay, you have bought the relay for nothing. I think you would be better off to replace the refrigerator.
