    The defrost is not on. Does the mother board control everything? Are there any other temp. sensors that would stop the compressor from comming on?

    the start switch on the side of the compressor is usually the problem, but since you said there is no power going to the compressor then it could only be the defrost timer/control board or the thermostat.

    • if the fans are running, then I would double check the lines going to the compressor for power, I know you checked them already but just in case.

    • if there is power going to the compressor and it wont start then it is the start switch on the side of the compressor.

Light comes on when you open door but wine cooler does not come one (does not cool). Checked all circuit breakers.

check thermostat set it to the coldest setting if doesnt come on test stat for power if power jump stat see if starts if still doesnt test for power at compressor if power than check thermo safety for compressor if good than compressor has an internal problem which will probably require a replacement

After power loss, freezer doesnt work, is there a reset button?

Check the compressor to see if it is coming on. If not but the condensor fan is running then it is likely that the start/run device on the compressor is not working. A 3N1 start kit is a cheap fix for this. Most times the compressor is not bad.

My model ACD2234HRQ is approx 90 days out of

you need to replace the rtc overload contactor located on the compressor body,there is also a run capacitor on the contactor,replace this along with the rtc contactor,this is your problem,the contactor and overload give the compressor starting power and run power to the windings,if the capacitor is bad it doesnt have enough torque to overcome the power to turn the compressor initially

Frigidaire refrigerator

check the overload, take it loose and inspect it for a burnt spot shake it if it rattles replace the relay
you either have a relay bad or a stuck compressor
the compressor has a 5 year warranty on the part, the relay 1
so if you relpace the relay and it still doesnt run the compressor, call for serviece under warranty
