Fridge door left open all day.. now its not coming on?

The door on my fridge was left open all day (about 9 hours). Now it's not wanting to come back on. I have tried flipping the breaker off for a few minutes then turning it back on, and also unplugging it and putting it in the bottom plug in. I need help on a fix that won't cost a lot of money. How do I get it working?

The compressor overheated. Unplug the Ref for 20-30 min. to let the compressor cool. Remover the back cover so you can see the compressor, this will help it cool off. A window fan set to blow on the compressor will help.

When the compressor is cool enough to touch plug it back in. It may start and run just fine or if it just clicks and does not run, replace the compressor relay.

Fridge not cooling after doors left open for at least 2 possibly 5 days. What should I do? Turn off for 24 hours? I have limited skills when it comes to repairing anything. Thanks!


It would have been far easier to switch off and just scrape the inside with a pladtic scraper ...then give it a good wipe and after a couple of hours plug it back in.

Why is Fridge not cooling well?


The part number you need is going to be WR09X10050. This is for the damper assembly, but while you are at it change out part number WR55X10150. this is the part that controls the damper and more than likely if one fails the other will be soon to follow

Freezer side is working fine. the fridge side appears not to be as cold as it use to be. a few days ago my kid left the door ajar all night. how ever it should be cold by now. there is power I can hearthe...


When a refrigerator door is left open the freezer will continue to run to keep it cold and since it can't cool an open area it will freeze up on the inside, to resolve this you will need to unplug the fridge and open the freezer door and allow the freezer to thaw completely, once it is thawed you can plug it back in and everything should go back to normal after a 24 hour period

Fridge door was left opened and now the fridge wont work but freezer working fine


All the cold air comes from the freezer side so if the fridge side is not cooling then the baffle door is not opening up or it has accumilated ice in it and frozen up. I would try to unplug it for a hour or so with the doors open and let it thaw and then plug back up and let it run for a couple hours to see if that fixes it. If not then I would suggest having the baffle checked.

This is s top freezer type. the bottom door was left ajar for several days. freezer seems to get cold but the bottom doesnt get cold.


Shiut down the fridge and let the fridge defrost off maybe about 8 hours. When the door was left open there could have been frost build up in the evaporator and blocked the vents.
So once the frost has been cleared off the fridge can be switched on to perform well.
