Question about Refrigerators
For most refrigerators and freezers:
If the fridge and freezer are not working because there's no power, first, you must check if the power cord is properly connected to the wall socket, or you have to make sure that the socket is working.
If there's a power on the unit, but fridge and freezer are not working, go to the back panel of the fridge and listen to it. If you hear a "hizzing" sound, then there could be a leak on one of the copper tubes, and it's out of refrigerant or freon.
If you're not hearing any hizzing sound, try to adjust the defrost thermostat. Or check if the condenser is working.
If you're not sure how to test it, it would be better to call a technician, and have him test the compressor. If there's a part or components that needs to be replace, the tech and estimate the cost, and estimation should be for free.
Thank you and good luck!
