Really bad day that concluded in no refrigerator.
We are certain there was a problem in the contact between the refrigerator and the thermostat but not sure the contact was bad before we disassembled everything. Remained that after fixing the contact problem the refrigerator still stay off.
We are suspecting that the control unit of the refrigerator is bad.
Short summary of a bad refrigerator day.
