Hi my name is Robert.....

When you tried to do the reset was the fridge running up to that point?

OK

I just see where you have tried letting it cool down. Make sure you have over 12 volts at the back of the fridge, what you can do for testing ONLY is bypass the sensor and see if the fridge comes on if so you have a faulty sensor, you should have a blue wire and red wire at the sensor and if you remove them and tie them together the fridge should come on, you can NOT leave them bypassed as it is a safety feature for the fridge......

Hope this helps, IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me... Robert
