We have a Frigidaire Gallery refrigerator. After a brief

Customer Question

We have a Frigidaire Gallery refrigerator. After a brief power outage about half an hour ago it is off with no lights to the control panel. There is power to the receptacle. I tried pushing the power switch on the control panel for several seconds with no response. Any suggestions?

Do you have a model number so I can better assist you? The model would be located on a sticker near the ceiling of the refrigerator section.

OK perfect, thank you. So first you'll want to run an extension cord to another outlet that you know is working so you can be certain the refrigerator is getting power from your house. If you do this and the refrigerator still won't work, your main control board below the refrigerator shorted from the power outage and the main control board would need to be replaced I'm sorry to say. To access this board you need to remove the vent below the doors and you'll see a plastic box screwed into the floor of the refrigerator. Below is a link to the part you'll need to order and replace for your model number.
