  • Mine does that too. As long as it doesn't stay open for too long, it should be ok I would think.

  • As long as the food never got about 40 degrees you should be okay.

  • As long as it didn't thaw out you will be fine.

  • Since you still had ice and not water I would say it is ok. As a general rule, the food has to be more than 50% thawed to count as a "thaw" - so yours is likely mostly frozen, and ok.

    An easy way to prevent a scare in the future - move all the meat to the back of the freezer where it won't thaw as fast. Put the ice cubes, frozen dinners, pizza, etc up front since it won't matter as much if they get thawed.
