Most likely the unit was in a defrost cycle when it was un-plugged. If you leave it plugged in and the controls "on" it should kick on within an hour and start cooling. If you could give me the model number I can tell you where the defrost timer is located so that perhaps you could manually advance it if it does not come on.

Our side by side refrigerator/freezer is not cooling properly


first try to clean the condenser coil, it is under the bottom of the unit,blow out or vac out the coil.
check to see if fan in freezer is running or if there is ice on the evaporator coil inside freezer.

Fridghefreezer not working


Make sur compressor is running.

Unplug for 20-25 min., plug it back in and listen for compressor to start. You will need to be behind the Ref so you can tell if you hear the compressor or the condenser fan running.

Ice/frost build up in freezer.
This is a failure of the defrost system. Evaporator fan, heater, timer, one or more could be bad.

No Cols - Temperature Controls do not respond - LED display shows a dash "-"


pencj,
My honest answer is that I have seen this before and in most cases the board works properly after the reboot.
Although you may not have lost power, you may have gotten a voltage spike. I would cancel the service man coming out, (I am a working service man myself) he probably will give you two options. #1 Wait to see if this happens again and if it does happen again soon, the board should be replaced. #2 replace the board now.
My suggestion is to soon go purchase a surge suppressor to plug into. This does not need to be a power strip style. A good quality suppressor that only has one or 2 plug in's or plugs directly into the wall receptacle should do fine. Your refrigerators maximum amp draw is listed on the model # sticker inside the refrigerator compartment.
I hope this helps, supertechks
