Roper Fridge problem

I heard a pop like you'd hear in short fuse with a little spark I suppose coming from the refrigerator. When I went to check I noticed that around the plug there was a black imprint and it wasn't working anymore. I unplugged the fridge and tried other outlets near by but no luck.
I am a renter, called the superintendent, no answer. I have lots of food in it and would hate to see them go bad.
I'd like to fix it myself if it's possible or have it repaired rather than waiting for a response from the super.
I reside in 10024 area in Manhattan. If you can help me to find a repair service close by or even better how to fix it I'd greatly appreciate it.
Thank you very much in advance.

My roper refrigerator has a freon leak can i repair it myself?

I would say You need new fridge. Roper fridge will cost less then repair, because You will have to call refrigeration company. Job is costly, would estimate at 500$-1200$. Hope that helps!

Fridge keeps tripping breaker and I hear a loud pop

Unplug and keep unplugged until the short circuit is found. COULD BE:
Line cord coming in is bad. A wire is bare touching chassis. A shorted motor capacitor. A shorted Compressor. A shorted wire to cooling fan. You could start a fire or get shocked, be careful.

Light bulb blew out. Put in replacement bulb, which will not turn on in frig, but will work in a lamp. Is there a fuse top replace or a circuit breaker to reset?

No there is not a fuse I am sorry to say, you are probably dealing with a broken wire or shorted socket. If you are brave you can unplug the fridge and remove the screws holding the control box(plastic casing the light is set into) and check the 2 wires going to the light for breaks or burns. Also make sure your door switch is opening and closing to allow the light to come on.

Roper fridge not cold

That is then the first thing you will need to insure is running. The fan can be removed and checked. Now if the compressor is not running I would believe you have another problem. You can hear or feel the compressor running and the fan is usually connected to the compressor wiring so they both should be running at the same time. I have seen the fans run for a short period of  time after the refrigerator was turned off and then back on after cooling, so if stopped and starting of the condenser fan can at times trick you to believe the fan is OK   
 Hope I have been helpful, Sea Breeze
