Hello, lets go slowly on this, $750 is about 4 times as much money in parts than virtually all repairs require... get me a list of the parts and prices, not part numbers, but description... such as defrost heater, compressor or control module. and tell me who quoted you those prices.

Electricians are not at all trained in refrigerator repair... that will be the next issue we investigate.
