What happens to food in the fridge and freezer when the power goes out?

    if without power for long enough, the interior of the fridge/freezer will heat up to room temperature, causing the food inside to spoil. if this happens and you do nothing about it some of the rotting stench will get into the circulation system of the fridge and it will smell horrible. happened one year in my basement freezer.

    Also, as a general tip, food that needs to be chilled should be thrown out after a few hours if the temperature has not been restored.
