I have a Magic Chef Refrigerator RB19K* 3A. We unplugged it

Resolved Question:

I have a Magic Chef Refrigerator RB19K* 3A. We unplugged it to clean behind it and when we plugged it back in it no longer works. Lights insode go on but neither freezer (top) nor refrigerator section work. Compressor & fan not going on. Is there a fuse or control that might have blown? If so, where is it located and how can I change it?
