How long can you keep food in a broken fridge?
Similarly one may ask, how long does it take for food to spoil in fridge?
three to four days
Similarly one may ask, what to do with food if refrigerator stops working?
The first thing you should do when a refrigerator stops running is find every cooler you have in the home. Load the coolers with ice, ice packs, or even those old frozen bags of peas to keep your perishable foods cool. (Throw away those frozen peas afterward, if they thaw.)
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the average refrigerator will keep food cold for about four hours without power, as long as you keep the doors closed. The more you open the door, the shorter that period becomes.
