    Thanks for the reply promptly, we'd reset gfi but it's not a plug-in problem. In fact we found a solution submitted by user rwparker1. (listed below) After we followed the instruction, our ref is up running! :-)

    Ok, what I found out is that there are codes built into the front
    panel. If you hold the top left and right buttons for 5 seconds, the
    fridge will reset. If there are no issues, the panel goes blank. If
    there is a dash in the right side of the panel, there is an issue with
    the fridge side. In the left, freezer side. The dash indicates a
    defrost problem. Only a couple of things can cause this. 1. Sensor 2.
    Heater 3. Fan, 4. control board.

First thing to do is to make sure that the plug is hot that your refrigerator is plugged into. Most of the time it's a gfi and it may need to be reset. if youi don't see it there sometimes the electricians will pu it in the garage and or the bathroom but it is still on the same circuit. Hope that htis helps you out.

Loud fan and wont turn on

power supply is probably shot and you are feeding a voltage way over what is needed. I have a dell that refused to operate one day. I went to www dot affordablesurplus dot com and found a 350 watt power supply with all the RIGHT plugs. Never had a problem since.
