Hello, thanks for using this service I will be assisting you today. When you respond to me sometimes it may take me a bit to respond back as I am researching your issue and it takes time to type so please be patient.

WHen you plug it back in does the condenser fan come on? Also is the compressor quiet at that point?

The unit may be in defrost, but if everything was running and nothing was cooling that would be a sealed system issue.
