No...I have had to unplug it in the past and plug it back in again. There doesn't appear to be any power to the unit. The light board for the temperature controls goes off. It's as if there's a short, but the outlet is fine (I don't need to flip a breaker).
This started before the ice maker stopped working. The ice maker stopped working after I replaced the water filter. I probably didn't run water through the system long enough the first time. I left the ice maker on, but the red light would blink, suggesting that it wasn't working. After a couple of weeks, I ran water through the system two different times: both with the ice maker on, and with it off. The ice maker is still not working.
However, this power issue started before I replaced the water filter. I thought the power issues might be related to a faulty water filter (i.e., too much resistance pushing water through the system caused an internal short?).
I don't know if it's worth fixing or not. I thought I'd ask you before I ran to buy a new refrigerator.
Thanks for your assistance. I can get the model number to you later tonight, but I won't be home before then. Maybe I could call Sears and they could let me know which model it is...
