I was removing the switch for the light in my GE fridge (about 10 years
old) and neglected to unplug it first. I got a large pop and spark
before as I tried to remove it and now the fridge won't run. I checked
the circuit breaker and it hadn't tripped but I reset it anyway. I
turned the fridge and freezer up to the coldest setting and it wouldn't
start running. Is it completely dead or can it be fixed?

Any kind of a short of the electricity can burn a plug in.
Get a lamp and plug it in the receptical the refrigerator was using and see if
it has good power to it. Also do you think that something costing 99 cents at
walmarts can take a hit of a 100 amps or more when it shorts out and still be
good. Think about it.
