Question about Refrigerators
Heres my problem I unplugged my fridge to clean underneath it was unplugged for about 1 hour I plugged it back in a 2pm by 5pm the compressor and fan did not stop at all. I turned the temp gauge down until it turned off then I turned it back where I had the temp it stayed off for 2min. at 5:02pm it came back on and ran until 6:45pm before it shut off on its own and I believe it stayed off for 20 mins before it came back on again. I guess my question is...... isn't 5-6 hrs a long time for the compressor and fan to stay on constantly. I noticed a 3/4 rip in the freezer door rubber piece
No, that's not too long. It takes a long time to bring the temp in there down from room temperature to around 38 degrees and zero degrees in the fridge and freezer, particularly with the smaller, energy efficient compressors we now have in most of our appliances.

Its the old story, is it now working fine, if so leave it,
the answer to your question though, how long would it take to cook a pie with the oven door not closing properly, or at the wrong setting,
it varies by what the outside influences are, as long as it settles down in the end and now works properly then all is well, don't forget the fridge will have warmed up as it were so it would take a while to get it to the right coldness, if the door wasn't closed it would take forever wouldn't it????
