Hello my name is***** will be helping you today. When you leave a refrigerator open what happens is hot air gets inside the unit and frosts up in baffle area and doesn't allow air to circulate with your fan. The easiest way to fix this is to shut it off for a good 10-12 hours. If you want to manually do it, it will take about 2 hours to complete. If you want to manually do it I can tell you how but if you dont have much experience with refrigeration I wuold recommend shutting it off to prevent you from damaging the unit.

If I have answered your question please accept and rate the question. If you are going to leave negative feedback pelase message me first. It is my job to ensure you are fully satisfied.

unplug until tomorrow 7 am
Expert:  kingmz replied 2 years ago.

Unplug it, leave all doors open and have a place to store your food and you will be good to go. Make sure to allow 24 hours after you plug it in for it to get back to the proper temperature.

Hey thanks for the info fridge is working fine but ligths never went on. I replaced them but still dont turn on.
Expert:  kingmz replied 2 years ago.

There's a few reasons why that would happen. Your door switch can be stuck closed, the door switch is bad, the light bulb socket can be bad, a wire could be loose in that socket or lastly the board is bad. Locate the door switch and make sure you press it in and out and its responsive. I'm going to look up a few things.

Could you locate the model number please, it will be located inside the fresh food section on a sticker.

Expert:  kingmz replied 2 years ago.

Just to confirm its the fresh food lights or the freezer lights?

Expert:  kingmz replied 2 years ago.

I want you to find this switch and tell me if you can push it in freely. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Door-Switch/DA3410120E/2030445?ss=-x64613334313031323065&mr=0
