Where to look first when a refrigerator isn't working?

A refrigerator brand Kirdland made by Whirlpool is not cold any more. Light's still on but no ice and foods are not cold at all. What should I check first? This is not a side-by-side model, is it called top-mount? Both outsides of freezer are hot.

Thanks.

Which fan ?
Does the pump run ?

Cant say about a Kirdland.
I had bad defrost timers do the same thing. the timer may have stopped in the defrost mode or the contacts inside the timer may be bad.
That's just the start.
