Frigidaire upright freezer and frig with freezer on top
I had a power failure. Bought dry ice. Put 1 10lb block in frig and 1 10lb block in freezer. Power came back on while I was not home. Frig/freezer shut down, presumably because it got too cold. Has not come back on since it got too cold. Does anyone have a solution? Larry

Air from the freezer is blown into the fridge by a fan, some new type frigs have electronic controls that open and close a vent to frig. the older ones have two vents in the frig from the freezer and when covered with frost or ice the air will not reach the frig. check for ice or just defrost the freezer if there is ice or frost, also check for food or plastic over vents in freezer. Also check that the freezer fan is running as these sometimes become blocked or defective motor.
The sadle valve is located on the copper pipe where the tube attaches to your water pipe in the house. Shut the water off at the saddle valve. Remove the hose from the rear of the frig on the water inlet valve and put it into a pail. Tunr the water on at the saddle valve and see how fast the water comes out. Some times if the saddle valve is installed on the bottom of the copper pipe they will get corrosive and restrict water flow. Open and close the valve several times to make sure it is clear and reinstall the hose to the rear of the frig. Turn the water back on to see if it works.
pat,this is tom.if your box temps are fine.then you have a blocked defrost drain.[if temps bad ,will condensate in fresh food because warm temps]couple ways one is to shut box down eight hours other is to remove the back frezer panel and clean out all that ice and clear drain.you can use blow dry to melt ice[watch water and electricty do mix at all,be carefil]once ice gone use weed eater line with nott in one end to push threw and come out ouher end and cleanin His name,tom
