Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

When you say it stopped working do you mean its does nothing at all, no lights no nothing no power?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is a slight flickering of the deli tray lights if you have both the power cool and power freeze bottoms pushed.
Otherwise nothing. The back panel gets hot on the rear of the refrigerator if plugged in for a while.

The main power board on the unit has failed and needs to be replaced. Its located behind the cover on the back on the unit:
