No, the lights are not working either

Ok, Plug something else into the outlet the fridge is plugged into. Does that appliance work, or not?

when I went to pull the plug out of the socket, my refrigerator came onnnnnnnnnnnn!!!!!!!!!


Thank you


It sounds like you may have a bad outlet. Jiggle the cord hold it tight to the outlet. If the cord movement makes it go off/on, then replace cord. If the movement of the outlet does it, or not....I still would replace the outlet anyway. I hope that I have been of assistance. Please give me a great rating if I have done so.......Thank you
