I have Frigidaire refrigerator in my garage. i had a friend who tried to install an electrolux garage kit for it... when he was taking the inside mounting light housing off, and separating the plugs, he did not turn the power off. he touched a screw driver with the black power plug and sparked the wire. (he did not get electrocuted but i want to kill him!)... bottom line, after putting the electric/light housing back together inside the fridge the lights work inside the fridge but the motor is not running. is the fridge ruined?

but the motor is not running
Measure the voltage across the two wires on the compressor. If the voltage is 0, turn the defrost timer a couple clicks and see if it turns on. If not, check the cold control for continuity. Whenever checking continuity always unplug the machine.
