Hi, flip the power switch or the breaker for 2-3 minutes. If the compressor does not kick on after you flip it back on, you have a faulty board. The main control board on these refrigerators are known for causing this issue and many others. Hopefully unplugging the unit or flipping the power switch will reset the control. Sometimes taping the top of the relay on the board will get the relay to close and the compressor to come on. You will need to replace the board to fix the issue.
