Your temperature control board is the problem.It controls the temperature settings in the Refrigerators.Since you say power flickered.This is the obvious cause for the temperature control borad to be defective.Sudden high or low signal to the board will cause the resistors to break of it will make capacitors to be defective.You have to do continuity testing on the board to find out the exact resistors or capacitors or transistors to be replace.
Some time the fuse may also create this problem it is also soldered on the board.

Note:Sometimes switching it off for 8 hours more will solve the problem because if it is defrost issue and system takes time to defrost the Refrigerators.

My mobile is dead

I just had this happen to me yesterday. I fought with my phone for about 3 hours removing the battery and trying to restart it. It would take about 5 minutes for it to finally boot and once it did the touch screen would not work. So I did a hard boot and within 5 minutes my phone was back to normal. I lost all my contacts but I just did a restore with the backup software. To do a hard boot hold down the red and green buttons on the front of the phone and push the reset button on the bottom of the phone with the stylus. The reset button is on the right side of the power/usb plug. As I said my phone was back to normal in just a few minutes.

Power went out for a couple of hours yesterday and when it came back on the fridge was totally defrosted and now the fridge won't get cold at all

If it doesn't fix itself in a couple of hours, the defrost timer may be stuck on (defrost) can you give it a partial turn? (located at bottom of fridge near floor, has about 5 wires - size of pack of cigarettes. Let me know?
