There is a soldered-in fuse on the main board that has probably blown. If you have a soldering iron you can either replace it or just bypass it with a piece of wire as your circuit breaker still protects the circuit that the fridge is plugged into. IF there is any problem with this working after doing the mentioned repair then you will need to replace the board. A fuse is way cheaper than the board.
