Entire refrigerator is off Circuit is fine --no lights no nothing?
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

If you're certain that the refrigerator is getting power from the outlet, there is only one part that would stop power to the entire refrigerator including the lights. Unfortunately that part is the main control board located on the back of your refrigerator. Below is a link to the part you'd need to order and replace to fix this problem. It's all plug and play so if you're handy you can't definitely do it yourself, but the part is about $175 or so.

What is possibility of a bad plug?

You said the circuitry was good. Run an extension cord to another outlet if you think the outlet is bad.

the plug itself ?

You mean the power cord? Unless the power cord looks damaged, I have never seen one just "fail"

it was a fuse in the control box not only one in the area with said problem

I'm not sure what you mean? The fuse on the control board?

Ffuse inside the control board! Fuse just after thecord entrance into the control board
so that fuse in the control board is part of the noise filter assembly and it means that your board itself surged with power so I wouldn't expect that replacing the fuse will last any real length of time without replacing the board along with it.
