Left refrigerator door open over night, next day it stopped working
The refrigerator door was left open and next day I found the machine did not work. I closed the door but it can make noise as usual but the temperature remains the same. Could anyone give me some advice as to how to fix this? Thanks.

I now have these kinds of refrigerators and freezers to maintain, and have found some will take as much as 18 - 24 hours before the lights will shut off after they have overheated from their doors being left open.
God bless your day.
Leaving the door open allowed an unusual amount of moisture laden air to enter the refrigerator, resulting in excessive frost build up on the evaporator. That frost is blocking the cooling coils so air can no longer pass through them. You can fix this by unplugging the refrigerator for a day or so, allowing the frost to melt, or taking the back wall out from behind the freezer shelves and melting the frost off with a hair blower.
turn it off for a day or two let it defrost and then turn it on. it just has frozen up the coil, or the compressor has heated up cause it was working to hard turn it of for a cople of hours to let the compressor cool
Either your door was left open or your have a defrost problem.
Unplug the refrigerator and let it sit overnight (with the doors open). Start it back up (give it at least twelve hours) the next day and see if it works. If it does, see how long it stays working for you. If it quites again, contact a service agent and have him repair your self defrosting problem.
