Question about Refrigerators
ngfam at you service! happy to assist!
The fact that it was left off and then restarted is coincidence, to the failure to work! There was already a problem that was waiting to happen, without any ones help!
So do not blame the person who caused the freezer to be unplugged! freezers with a lot of food in them can stay frozen more than 24 hours if no one keeps opening it! Even 48 hours!!!
Time for factory service and diagnoses!
If the freezer is 10 years or older its not worth investing money to fix it! The new ones are mush more efficient and save you real money on your electric bill!!!
Either way this is a service problem to remedy!
Below I gave you a nation wide service thats very good!
We sell appliances for 65 years and I recommend this nation wide Factory repair service!
Call A&E Factory Service /They service nation wide
And are available 24/7 for making appointments!
If the appliance is 10 years old or more,it may make sense not to invest any money to fix it!
Happy to assist you,
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!

Tips for a great answer:
Top of Form
If there is no cooling at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that the compressor and gas pressure is OK. Now shut off the fridge and leave it powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
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.
However if ice forms in the freezer 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. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.
