How long will food last with refrigerator unplugged?

Bear in mind that a refrigerator continues to insulate even when it is off, so cold food inside a refrigerator can remain adequately cold for about 4 hours or even up to 6 hours, depending on the refrigerator itself, the ambient temperature, and the number of times the refrigerator door is opened. The food in the freezer section will keep longer - 1 to 2 days (if the freezer is full). See Related Links.

Why is a freezer compartment at the top of a refrigerator?

In the old days and still in many refrigerators, the freezer was actually inside the refrigerator cabinet. It is the coldest place in the fridge where the cooling coils are located, and when cold air leaks out of it, that cold air falls down into the outer cabinet of the refrigerator. Warm air from the refrigerator portion rises up to the freezer section and gets cooled in turn. This is also why the vegetable "crispers" are located in the bottom of the fridge, I believe--the coldest air from the freezer falls there first, keeping the fruit and veggies freshest.
