i really doubt the freezing was the issue, but I’m wondering about the other things and times that you didn’t describe more. Here’s what I mean.
Was both your old refrigerator as well as this new one, modern frost free units and not those small “dormitory” units?
How long was your old frig bad before you noticed it? Could the meat have gotten warm for a period?
You said you set the temp on the new one and went to bed, but was the new one at least cold before you put the meat in and went to bed?
I’m not sure about that bottom being soft as it really should not be this far into the aging. Have you done a nose test?
