Customer Question

My Fridgedare deep freezer door was left open a bit for a few days and now isn't working.

Good morning. You'll want to unplug the unit for 24 hours and make sure everything thaws out in case too much frost built up due to the door being left open. After everything has thawed out, plug the unit back in and see if it works like normal again. If it doesn't, the compressor was over worked and isn't as efficient anymore due to overheating so the compressor would need to be replaced which is about $650 and probably not work fixing but that is completely up to you.
