Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
If you had a momentary power loss this symptom will present itself. Try unplugging the unit for 30 minutes and let the coolant system and compressor stabilize. Then see if it starts. If it does start great. If it does NOT start I need a make and model number to better help you troubleshoot. With that information I can provide how to steps and parts information applicable to your refrigerator.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

    You never bothered providing us with your make and model number yet you rate the post poorly. I could provided you with service manuals and walked you step by step through the entire troubleshooting process. I would have told you where to get replacement parts on line but you did not afford us that opportunity. It makes me wonder why I try to help people for free but, I chalk this up to finding a make and model number was too just too difficult for this particular problem and it will not deter me from helping others. One of FixYas' best took one on the chin for the team:

I have a power strip that keeps tripping its safety switch even though only one electric oven is plugged into it. What do I need to do?


did you try to plug directly in to a plug ?
maby your strip is defective or has a 10 amp overload protector this will trip with heating devices of your nature.

Rool out switch keeping tripping


assume you mean roll-out switch on a furnace....it is a temperature sensitive safety control intended to limit the temperature in the vestabule or burner area. if it keeps tripping, it's because something is causing the temp to get too high. a dirty filter would be first suspect. it could also be an inoperative blower, a dirty evaporator, or a blocked flue or vent pipe. check all these things out and you will likely find your problem..

My adp8540 has stopped working because my sister opened midcycle. Now it trips the circuit safety switch and if it does do anything else it blinks 6 times. Can it be fixed or do I jut need a new one?


Please remove off the main power supply and keep aside while pressing off the panel control. If the trip works, check if the motor is struck , release with manual action. Also check the motor, remove connection and see if the trip has changed. Also if there is any leak on the machine if the trip switch is a ELCB , which can trip with a ground/earth leak. If so check the outlet ground or use another plug point.

Gas Furnace not working trips breaker


Does it trip the breaker when the safety switch is NOT pressed? I am trying to isolate where to look for the short circuit. Is it before the furnace, or after the furnace. If the breaker trips with the safety switch not depressed, the problem is not the furnace, and could be where power enters the furnace, or further upstream from the furnace.

My dishwasher when switched on keeps throwing the trip switch


i had this probem and apparently there's a 'float switch' in the bottom of the machine. This switch is a safety cut off and when activated can not just stop the machine but trip the electrics in the house. the reason for it activating is when food clogs up the drainage bit water can not drain and fills up the bottom of the machine. this then activates the 'float switch' as a kind of safety cut off.
the way to sort it is to disconect the machine from the mains and drain and water. empty the clogged up food from the drain bit. then tip the machine back and a load of water will pour out (may need a load of towels for this bit or take the machine out the back and do it)
once this is done, plug it all back in and give it a try - works for my machine, good luck.
