Is the compresor and fan running?  Are the evaporator coils clean?  If compressor and fan are running touch the top of compressor is it pretty warm to the touch?

Yes the coils are clean and dust free.    The compressor is running and fan is blowing air over it and it does not feel warm to the touch

Ugh, most likely low or out of refridgerant or compressor has internal problems.  I have found in most cases it's too costly to mess with the sealed system and you would be better off with a new fridge.  You could ohm out the compressor but it would just be a verification of the problem. 

Ohm 1)C to R; 2)C to S; 3)R to S; 1+2=3; Ohm each to compressor housing should read open if not it's grounded to the housing.

Perhap's one of the tech's with more HVAC history would have an economic solution...but if it were my service call I would most likely condemn the machine.  Sorry.

It used to be all of the domestic manufacturers had a 5 year warranty on sealed systems.  I checked your warranty and you only have a 1 year warranty.  It might be worth it to call Electrolux and see if they'll give you a concession. 1.800.944.9044

Put a clamp on amp meter over one power wire to the compressor to make sure it is running and tell us the amp draw reading.

No ice NOR frost on the Evaporator ?
Has this Fridge worked OK up till now ?
Has it been in storage or OFF for any length of time ?
Has it been moved latley ?
