If the whole house power wasn't down, then you could have a circuit breaker that is flaky or a wire connection in the breaker panel or at one of the outlet boxes along the way from the panel to your outlets. If it happened once, it will happen again. I'd cycle the power at the breaker, just on general principles to make sure the movable components within the breaker are where they are supposed to be. If it happens again, I'd start at the breaker and check every outlet box in that circuit for a loose connection, either a screw or wirenut. Breakers aren't expensive to replace if you can't find any loose connections along the way.
There is no reset button.
Firstly turn the fridge off at the wall switch. Wait 5 minutes then switch the power back on. If the fridge still does not start then you have a problem with either the fridge electrical circuit has a fault or the circuit board fuse has blown.
is the compressor running if so try this.
1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses. 2. Can you hear the compressor running. If not do you hear any clicking sounds. 3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator. 4. Wait one hour. 5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man. 6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man. let me know.
You'll need to get in touch with the store you bought it from but Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start. Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.
Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm
Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.
Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).
Of course check breakers, then unplug unit from wall for several hours (let unit compressor cool) then plug back in. If after plugging it in you continue to hear a "clicking" sound on rear of unit either start device on compressor is bad or compressor its self is gone.
