Question about Refrigerators
Replaced capacitor on circuit board
It sounds like you may failed to reconnect all / improperly connected one of the plug-in connectors after the repairs were made. You may have also dislodged one of the connectors during reassembly. Go back and double check the connectors - and make sure that you observed polarity when you replaced the capacitor. Most are clearly marked and reversing it is usually a "go / no go" deal as opposed to "close enough".

the start and run capacitors of the compressor can go short circuit and cause a big spike that can blow the bulbs, trip fuse etc. Inspect the capacitors for splits etc, you may well find that the start cap has blown and so there will not be enough current to get the compressor running.

With the problems it is presenting, I would say it's very likely.
However it may take a bit of detective work to find which board is defective.
Check a part suppliers link Here for price comparison so you have some ideas.

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........
In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.
Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.
Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)
Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.
