Need help

Does anyone have any ideas on what I could do about this problem? We bought a chest freezer for out in the garage. Unfortunately, the outlets in the garage are GFCI. While we were out or asleep or something some time ago, the power blinked out. We never even knew about it. The way we found out was because it tripped the GFCI in the garage, everything in the freezer thawed and started leaking out the bottom into the garage. GROSS!!!!!!!

We have since cleaned, bleached and cleaned again. But we are afraid to plug the freezer back in and use it again.

Is there a way to bypass a GFCI circuit, or force it to reset when the power comes back on? If the power goes out, we KNOW there is a freezer out there we have to contend with. However, if the power blinks off when we don't even know about it, we want the freezer to come back on when the power does.
