Ok thats really good news.....There are a few other things that can cause this as well.
First let me describe the timer again. It may have gotten stuck or there could be a loose connection on the timer. If you find you have to dig into it if it is a loose connection on the
timer the wire up next to the timer will have discolored. Again these wires are carrying
electricity at all times so be careful. There are different timers it could be a 10 or 12 hour
or it could have already cycled and kicked on again.
I have seen cold controls the one in the fresh food compartment get a bad spot if its left
at a setting for a very long time. Moving the control one way or the other should cure that. If you find this is the case you will need a cold control.
Loose wires at the cold control.
Loose or burned connections at the compressor normally you will be able to see that
after the cover is removed.
No matter what you do to try to find the problem you run the risk of disabling the unit. There is not a way around it.
But at least its repairable if you can find the problem.
And please remember. Everything in there has electricity at all times.
Oh and one more thing I am pretty sure there is a wiring harness connector in that panel that holds your cold control, it could be loose. I ll look to be sure and get back with that drawing. Give me just a bit.
