Default Fridge repair help

Kenmore model 253.7041 French door fridge with bottom freezer drawer. Has a panel on inside of door that adjust temp, resets alarms etc. Power went off while we were gone today. Now fridge has no power. Outlet has power.

I sure wish we could make a fridge that doesn't have fancy sensitive electronics.

So where do i start troubleshooting and how do i go about it? I'm guessing a board has fried.

I just replaced a board in our Sub Zero. Wasn't hard but cost $248. My wife called a repairman to look at it. That cost $65 but was worth it, I think. He said he could do it but would cost right at $600 so I did it my self. You may try a repairman first just to find out what it is then do it your self.

Could be your fridge has a safety disconnect/breaker somewhere that needs to be reset.

Probably too late for you but that's what I would look for first.

A professional diagnostic is probably not a bad idea.

From what I have read, they do not have built in reset buttons/breakers built in.

It just really annoys me. We paid $1200 for this thing and have had it 18 months. The fridge before this one was cheap as dirt and ran flawlessly for 10 years or more.
