Question about Refrigerators
It's a Kelvinator Classic fridge/freezer and I defrosted it by switching it off, letting the ice in the freezer compartment melt and then I cleaned the inside. When I plugged it back in again it doesn't want to turn on again. I did check the plug, that's not the problem. I know these fridges need to be level in order to work and I might have shifted it around a bit but I have the fridge postioned as level as possible and it still doesn't want to turn on again. Please help and thank you!
Check the defrost timer.
The defrost timer could have automatically cycled to the defrost mode which means it should come back on in 15-20 min. If it doesn't then the timer could be stuck in the defrost mode.

Check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the freezer or evaporator fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils under the unit for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan to see if it is running.
If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling the freezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked.
You could defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigerator and letting it sit for at least 24 hours with the doors open to allow the frost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start the warming up again.
