Upright freezer door was left open overnight. Now it won't run when I plug it in.

Frigidaire MFU17F3GW4 upright freezer, manufactured 1/99. The door was left open overnight and the next morning there was water on the floor, food thawed out and the motor was not running. I cleaned it out, soaked up the water and have let it sit for a day with the door open. Everything seems to be dried out but when I plug it in, nothing happens. I never smelled smoke or a burning smell, so I don't think the compressor burned out. However, I'm wondering if it's worth trying to get it repaired or if it would be better to just cut our losses now. I read on another site that possibly the start relay might have stopped working because it was going all night. Is that something easy to determine and repair? Is there a restart button on this model? Any ideas would be appreciated.
