Question about Refrigerators
I would be better for the unit if you unplugged it and allow to completely thaw. Also, double check all food as salad dressings also goes bad in higher than normal temps. I reason behind the unplugging is to allow the unit to thaw and reset. 50/50 change if you close up the unit it will function as normal.

This is probably because you turned off the fridge at the mains (to defrost??). To stop the flashing lights and to restore normal operation, turn both the Supercool and Superfreeze knobs counterclockwise to "off" and then back to the operating position. Thats all!

Make sure fridge OFF freezer OFF ... then turn mains on. ONLY turn freezer to max, after 30mins put fridge to 1care ... this should overcome the problem of the flashing lights. When both nice and cool turn settings down. it worked for me

This is a code that the Freezer temperature is too high not cold enough. If this is the case you will want to check and see if the coils on the back and bottom of the fridge are clean and free of dirt as this will cause your freezer to warm up and not work properly. Also listen to the fan in the freezer and make sure that it is running, if it is not running you will need a service tech to come and check your freezer.

SOURCE: I accidentally left the freezer
If the fridge has been left open for so long you may need to perform a complete defrost. First try disconnecting power for five minutes. To do this trip the circuit breaker or disconnect the fridge's power cord. If that does not work, remove food from inside the unit and perform a complete defrost by leaving the fridge not connected overnight. That should solve the problem. In case the beeping does not stop, even after defrosting, it means that the overload caused by the door left open had damaged parts inside the freezer. Compressor relay and parts in defrost system must be tested. While door was open the fridge has been under load most of the time, and this results in parts blowing. In that case call Hotpoint at the number listed in the user manual.
First try disconnecting power and performing a full defrost. Most of the times that is enough to stop the beeping.

The ventilation fan that circulates the COLD air from the evaporator coils could get clogged with frost and so could be jammed. Also the wires to the fan can be worn out due to the frost. If so check if the defrost timer works to switch the heater to remove the frost. Also the check if the compressor is shut down by the timer /thermostat . If the heaters are not working, check continuity of the heaters. Please check this link for tips to work. Thank you for using Fixya.
When the door was replaced it was necessary to check the aligment and specially if the ddoor switch is closing in .Also if you have tilted the fridge to replace the door then it is possible that the oil could have flow out and disturbed the settings. So shut down the fridge for few hours and try again. Now If there is no cooling at all , before we go further we must confirm the first step of confirming the compressor and gas pressure. Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge. If there is no ice formation we have a big issue as the compressor and gas must be checked out. If compressor is running check the pressure, get help to test gas pressure. If not you will need to fill up ,If gas pressure is good the possibility of the compressor being inefficient is high. In such a case you must take consensus to estimate and decide, if RPM of motor is low check capacitor.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off. If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
So attempt to test using a multi-meter / clamp tester from the outside and make your observations so that we come to the solution.
