Unhappy NEC FR480 fridge and freezer not cold

My NEC FR480 fridge is not cool at all and the freezer has defrosted. The freezer fan sounds like it is still going and so does the fridge motor.
I have pulled off the back metal cover and found that the coils are covered in dust and the drain pan is full of water but I don't think I can empty it as it is all attached to the coil section. Any ideas of what the problem could be?

Welcome to the forums from down under.

I'm not totally familiar with your fridge but most work the same way. If it defrosted and get warm all by itself then the compressor isn't running. There is a fan under the unit. Is that fan running ? The compressor is also underneath.... is that running ?

You said the fridge fan is running which means the thermostat is probably ok. You may have a problem with the defrost timer.
