fridge not coming back on after defrost!
Last night we defrosted the fridge/freezer (turned it off, put a bowl of hot water in the fridge next to the coils, let it drip) then toweled it off, put our food back in, and turned it back on (electric) to #5. (It had been on #4). This morning (~9-10 hours later) it's not cold. Did we miss some part of turning it back on? Was there a dance we were supposed to do?
I read through the forum and see that it may be early-- sounds like some wait a day for it to function once off. But in case I've missed anything I want to nip it in the bud. It is not warm in there but yet we had cold food in the sealed box all night, so that may be the reason there. I believe we're level (but perhaps not 100%? How important is that with electric?), and we also did not look in any vents for obstacles. But it was working fine (a little less than, actually) before the defrost.
Any suggestions? Thank you!
