No, it still goes up. Second Law.
My assumption was that if the room is at 0C, the fridge won't be running, therefore no energy will be transferred to heat.

Unless the thermostat/mains filter capacitor draws current, in which case it will rise.

In a perfectly insulated room contained in a perfectly insulated house, repeatedly opening the room's door to have a look at the fridge will release sufficient energy over time to make the temperature of the room unbearable. (A very long time).

Just below the cut-in point of the fridge's thermostat, that's all.
