Kenmore Coldspot Refrigerator not cooling after a power surge in home
 
Hello, my Kenmore side by side has stopped cooling after a power surge happened on Saturday. The breaker tripped 3 times and after that, it stopped cooling. Any suggestions on what to look for and how?:confused:

Your compressor probably shorted out. You can confirm by checking the compressor terminals for a short to ground. Too late now, but I would add a 1000joule surge protector to the wall outlet.

Thank you, Richappy. I will start there and see where it leads me. That is my "electric beer cooler" that can't break down! :) If I order a new compressor, is it easy to replace?

The new, modern compressors are rather expensive and pros. charge a lot to put one in, also, you will not be able to buy refrigerant without a license.
