After the power went out my fridge won't operate and keep cool, Why?

Hello - I need help I have recently discovered that my Model #KSRG25FKSS15 - KITCHENAID Side-by-side refrigerator is not functioning properly. Two nights ago a bad storm came through my area and after a large flash of lightning power went out in my neighbored - 3 hours later power was restored. Within the past two days, my fridge and freezer have stopped keeping cold or frozen and will not work properly.....I am making an assumption that the power outage has something to do with it being that I have never had any issue since I purchased the unit in 2004. I have tried turning off the breaker for several minutes and then turned it back on but it will still not get cold. I have power to the fridge (when you open it you have light and you can hear a motor running - and the air flow is also working) however I do not hear the compressor running like it can hear it click on for a few moments then it clicks off....I also hear a click every so often........any suggestions?
