Keep the fridge door closed and don’t open it.  If you don’t open it, you will have 24 hours or more!

18 hours normally. As long as you leave the door shut. (I work for a Electrical British Power Distribution Company)

Just don’t open the fridge and you should be good for awhile… or limit it to as little as possible.

I was alwyas told that as soon as it goes out move everything from the firdge, milk,eggs cheese to the freezer and it will help keep it cold longer also if you have ice in the freezer it will help. I always keep a bag of ice in the freezer for that reason. 18 hours is about right or if frozen things are no longer frozen or cold things from the fridge are no longer cold
