It sounds like the compressor is locked (seized). The current overload is doing it's job by opening the circuit. Take a current reading, on the common leg, while the compressor is trying to start. The locked rotor amps (LRA) for that compressor will be indicated on the compressor tag. If it's drawing LRA while trying to start, you need a new compressor. Which is the costliest part in that unit and requires specialty tools to replace.

Probably needs to be vacuumed and a little oil, if that doesn't help the fan may need to be replaced

Logically it would be warmer. Up = higher temp; down = lower

One reason for the fan running is that it is trying to distribute the air in the compartment. Look at the very rear of the freezer on the bottom and see if the little vents, which allow water to disperse, are not filled with frozen ice. If so, turn off the fridge (unplug it) and use a hair dryer to melt that ice until it is all gone. That will probably fill the condensation pan under the unit and you'll need to empty it.

Sounds like the thermostatic control is worn out. Replacing it should fix the problem.
Hope this helps.

I think problem its not with thetmostat but the compresor work but not correctly not have enought power to create pressure.

Try clearing all vents - inside (make sure vents not covered - in fridge and freezer) and outside (gently vacuum - the coil areas in the back and bottom of fridge)
Air needs to circulate in both parts (dependent on eachother)

check and empty the drain pan, you should be able to gain access by removing the vent grill below the door if there is one. The pan is under the unit somewhere. There is also a drain tube, make sure its not blocked with ice.

Is the compressor relay bad?

A Torx bit for a power screwdriver or a Torx wrench size T20 or T15 probably.
