Pressed a button, now fridge won't work
you have pressed the defrost button that is why the compressor stops and would not come back on. there could be a temperature sensor on the thermostat or a timer where in it would only reset back after the temperature of the fridge warms up. try to remove all the food and let is sit for a while, plugged and watch if the compressor would kick in after about two hours or untill the fridge warms up. if the button is stuck, you may have to spray lubricant in the thermostat or replace the thermostat .

The refrigerator/freezer is not cold?
The problem may be very simpler than you realize. The first thing you have to check is your refrigerator's temperature control settings. Perhaps it got accidentally shifted. If so, shift your refrigerator to a colder setting and see if that helps or not.
Another possible issue is the heavy food load. Ensure that there should not be too much food near the air vent. If your fridge or freezer is packed too full, you may be blocking the air vent and preventing cold air from entering the fresh food compartment.
Now, examine your refrigerator's gaskets to ensure they are sealing properly. A poor seal could cause the refrigerator to leak all cooled air. Repair or replace them if feels necessary.
Also, check the state of the refrigerator's condenser coils. If they are significantly dirty, they won't regulate properly and will make refrigerator work harder to keep itself cool.

Aficionado hvt18dfbb is running but NO TEMP CHANGE
There is no compressor on these units. These units use a Peltier cold/hot module where the cold side faces the heat sink and the fan exhausts the heat side. Another fan sends the cool side into the frig. I have the same unit, I am experiencing the same issue. I was looking to change out the Peltier modules (about $7 each) and try that. I did find a replacement Control Board is about $45 and if the Peltier change doesn't work this may be my next step.
