Generally, the purpose of turning off the fridge is to control its cooling and save electricity. Although there is no sense in closing the fridge for one or two hours a day. In today’s time, most refrigerators are coming with autocut feature, which automatically turns off after cooling up to a certain temperature. After the autocut of the fridge, the compressor also stops and the electricity continues to be saved. Then as soon as cooling is needed, the compressor starts automatically. The fridge automatically turns on and off as per the need. You don’t need to close.

First of all, the fridge has to be emptied and all the things have to be taken out from it. After emptying the fridge, you can close it. This will not damage the fridge and after returning you can clean it again and start it. However, if you are going out of the house for 1 or 2 days, you can leave the fridge on.
