IIRC your refrigerator has an electronic control in the front face of the freezer door. Both sides have 3 buttons in a vertical column. Is there any sign of life on this control panel (IE do you see the stack of horizontal green bars lit up and does pushing the "freeze" or "fridge" button change them)? If not, then the most likely scenario is that you had a big power surge when the AC voltage came back and it blew out your control panel. If you can install an adequatley rated surge protector in the power line for your refrigerator you can prevent this from happening again.

Westinghouse ice maker quit working


Is it your ice maker, or possible the blades that crush the ice or dispense the cubes? What can happen in the latter case is that during the storm the ice melted and pooled in the cutter mechanism. Then, when power was restored, the blades were frozen solid. To fix, investigate taking out the cutter mechanism and letting it thaw and drain. Then reinstall and use frequently for the first few days to prevent refereezimg.

Unplug from the wall and hit the power button on the tv. The light may come on dim then fade out or you hear a click. This means it has built in surge protection. Plug it back into the wall and you should be good to go if nothing burnt up.

We had a thunder storm a few days ago and that we lost power and that the pc shut down by it self so the next day we try to turn on the pc so it won't turn on please can you help us


Make sure that all the plugs are plugged in. Try a different outlet, if it's plugged into a surge protector make sure that it didn't trip. Or if is plugged into a regular power strip press the reset button on the side of the strip. If that doesn't work there usually is a fuse inside the PC that might have blown.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there is no reset on the phone system, and it's a near certainty that a power surge during the storm "fried" the sensitive circuitry in your phone. The same thing happened to me a couple of years ago and I ended up replacing my phone system. A corded phone in the house at the same time lost its ringer during our storm. To this day it still works fine, but will not ring. While you cannot save your present equipment, it's possible to protect your replacement by installing a phone line surge protector (available at just about any store that sells phones or computers) and a whole house surge protector that you install at the main outside breaker box (you'll need to search the web for that one. Look for a SYCOM surge protector).

Whirlpool Gold Ice Maker Quit Working


IF THE FRIDGE IS COOLING AND FREEZING WITHOUT AND HASSLE THEN YOU DONT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR CONTROL BOARDS.ALSO IF THE WATER IS STILL COMING OUT THE WATER SIDE OF IT.YOU NEED TO LOCATE THE WATER VALVE AND CHECK IF THE VALVE TO THE ICE MAKER IS NOT BLOWN THAT MIGHT BE THE CAUSE OF THE FRIDGE NOT MAKING ICE.

GOOD LUCK.
