There is not a reset button on most models of refrigerators. Unplugging the refrigerator for several minutes and then plugging it back in will sometimes reboot the electronic control board on the refrigerator (if it has a control board). A power surge can sometimes damage a control board and it will need to be replaced. Other components can also be damaged by a power surge.

If you need more help, submit more details and the full model number of the refrigerator.
