do you hear the compressor running? how long was this unpluged?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes, the compressor runs, it was unpluged for about 45 min.
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
it needs to come back down to temperature before the light will go off. give it a while and it will probably go off. let me know thanks Bryan
