Hi, my name is ***** ***** I have been in the home improvement and repair field for 20 years. I will be very glad to help you today. It should be fine but if you find that the freezer does not reach temperature any more then you will have to defrost the evaporator. It should be fine if this is the first time this has happened. I doubt the food got thawed beyond reversal. I am sure that the food will be fine to continue to freeze also.
