Remember, the colder you make the thermostat, the longer the compressor will run to try and reach the required temperature. Question is," is the temperature in the fridge cold enough or not cold enough." If it is, then you will need to have the thermostat replaced.(there is no control). If not cold enough at any time, then there is an issue with the cooling circuit.(Will then need to have it checked by a technician.

Without drawing a diagram, and assuming you have the controller, you need to do two things: Power the controller by finding a wire pair in the fridge that is always hot, and finding the wire that the resident thermostat uses to interrupt the operation of the compressor. This thermostat is usually located behind a panel in the top part of the refrigerator section and has a bulb that resides in the freezer. . Your controller should have an on and off range; that is, it should cut the fridge on at, say 61, and cut back off at, say, 60. You'll need some kind of range, thereby giving the compressor some "off time" of more than a couple of minutes. If you don't do this, you will reck the compressor, or it simply won't start. (Refrigeration systems need to equalize so that the compressor motor won't have to start when the pressure is really high. At equal pressure between evaporator and condensor, the motor can start easily.) . You have quite a project ahead of you. I suggest when you get into the nitty gritty of it, enlist your neighborhood MacGyver type. It shouldn't be that hard to pull off this project.

Testimonial: "tks very much for the advice pj, I have the new controller, it appears to be quite sophisticated & has delays. It is a KI&BNT model MTC-2120"
Tips for a great answer:
Hello AnnArborMom, thank you for your inquiry!
I would recommend you adjusting the temperature to a lower setting to see if that would start your compressor to cool. If that is not successful I would contact a professional to come and properly diagnose your appliance. It could be that the power outage shorted the main control board or relay. I hope this is helpful. -Matt
