You are not following the steps. It is not possible to plug it in to charge for 15 minutes after only 2 minutes have passed.

Please follow these steps:

Plug in the Kindle to charge for 15 minutes. (If it is plugged in already, please unplug for 10 seconds to restart the process.)

Once 15 minutes passes, please keep it on the charger and hold in the power button/on switch for 40 seconds to reset it.

Keep it on the charger for 15 additional minutes.

Let me know if it unfreezes after you follow these steps.
