Freezer iced up, defrosted it and fan was not blowing. was trying to test power input to fan and accidentally shorted something and blew the breaker. reset the breaker for the plug and it has power but no lights on front panel on and no power in fridge. Did I short the panel or a control board? how do I test for this?

So replaced the control board and lights and fans came on but compressor will not kick on. Is the a relay or started for the compressor that might have been shorted and could be replaced or am I looking at a whole new compressor?

You have an inverter compressor. The inverter needs 3-6 VDC signal voltage across the two smaller wires and 120 VAC supply voltage across the two larger wires. It looks like the inverter only comes with the compressor.
