I unplugged my GE fridge to clean massive dust off the motor

Customer Question

I unplugged my GE fridge to clean massive dust off the motor and when I plug it back in-- nothing. No power. Did I break it?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: It's about 15 years old. I have the manual but it does not list the model number. Where would I find that?
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: There was no work--it had been leaking and it was clogged with dust so I cleaned off the dust.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Just what could be preventing it from starting back up again. Do I have to wait a certain amount of time? The outlest is working GHow much does this cost?

Check the outlet and try a different one and then I would follower where the cored connects to the unit maybe the molex plug came undone as you would have been working right there.
