 PULL THE PLUG FROM THE WALL , Check the compressor at the bottom rear of the refrigerator to see if it is "HOT" don't get burned. If it is hot then probably the fan next to it is not working,( I found my light bill caught in the blades of mine). You will have to plug in the refrigerator to see if the fan works. If nothing is working and you have a repair manual for your Model refrigerator. Read the directions on testing the relay unit on the side of the compressor. If This is OK then check your defrost timer. The above 2 items plus the thermostat are the only things that keep your refrigerator from operating. If the "COMPRESSOR" is cold when you check it then immediately suspect the relay unit on the side of the compressor or the defrost timer. If you have already checked them and they are still good the contact your electric company for damages as the Brown-Out may have fried your Compresspr due to the surge of the electric coming back on. I have seen this happen time and time again over the past 55 years. Remember always disconnect the electric when repairing any type appliance. To check the items I mentioned you will probabley need an Ohm-meter. You may have to call a certified repairman to give you a repair bill that you can submit to the electric company. Then again some electric companys are consumer friendly and send their own inspector to certify your claim.
