There may be a fan and duct arrangement that blows cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator compartment.  That fan is controlled by the refrigerator thermostat.  If the door was open for a long time the fan might have been blowing cold air continuously and ice may have built up and blocked the duct preventing air flow to the refrigerator.  Check to see if you can hear the fan running.   You may have to press the switch that controls the light since that also sometimes turns the fan off when the door is open.  If you can hear the fan, check if there is any air flowing out of the vent holes at the inside back of the fridge compartment.  No air flow=no cooling.  If no air flow, unplug the refrigerator for a couple of hours to see if ice in duct will melt then start up and check for fan operation and cooling.  Frozen food in freezer will be OK if you keep it closed while refrigerator is unplugged.

Most likely the introduction of outside air with it's humidity has frozen the evaporator coil over. The problem may clear itself if the defrost system is working properly. Give it a day to recover on it's own. There is a way to speed up the process but you'll need to locate the defrost timer first. If you can find the timer, advance the timer with a screwdriver,slowly until a "click" is heard and the compressor stops. Check it in an hour or so.

Amana BR22VL refrigerator section stopped cooling.


is there any frost on your food packages or on the ceiling where the light is?if so the door was left open and the air vents are froze up or you have a bad damper or evaporator fan motor,open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing?if so the fan motor is good,check for ice on the ceiling and packages,if that checks good look at the back inside wall of the freezer,if that's covered with like snow or frost you have a defrost problem or also you have a damper in your model,it's closed and won't open to let the cold air in from the freezer.

go here,this is the part,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air from the freezer up into the fridge section,in your model the damper door opens to let the cold air in,when it gets cold enough the damper closes and that's it,so if the door wasn't left open and the fan is blowing in the freezer you have a bad damper.

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.

Built in freezer compartment only gets cold on right side and some on back, not left side, bottom or top. Is it fixable or do we replace refrigerator....GE Model GMS10AAMLWW


Try defrosting it for a day or 2, could be ice build up on the coils, just empty it, unplug and leave the door open, have something handy to wipe the water up with as it thaws out.

REFRIG WILL NOT GET ANYTHING COLD


make sure there is no frost buildup behinde the freezer back panal and the ducts to the frig are clear. Leaving the door open will make a lot of frost and diminish the cooling capacity.

Hotpoint CTF15ELD top freezer refrigerator - freezer O.K. refrig too warm


It's likely the door was inadvertently left open, and the cold air passages from the freezer have built up enough ice that the cold air from the freezer has no way to enter the refrigerator. Check the cealing of the refrigerator. If you can see or feel ice in the passages between the freezer and fridge, you can probably solve the problem by finding a safe temporary home for your food, and leaving the refrigerator unplugged overnight.
