What Are Some Common Issues with Refrigerators?

  • Fridge not cooling properly: Is your fridge not cooling enough? There could be a problem with the door not sealing or aligning properly. A poorly sealed fridge can let valuable cold air escape instead of trapping it inside. 
  • Stops running: Your fridge has stopped running possibly because the overload switches and fans that initiate the cooling process have failed.
  • The ice maker stopped making ice: Why will your ice maker not make ice? The line feeding your water inlet valve could be kinked or broken preventing the flow. If water cannot reach the unit, ice cannot be formed. It could also be caused by a faulty valve.
  • Ice building up on the fridge: You could have an improperly-working defrost thermostat which means the defrost heater will not turn on and your fridge will line with ice.
  • The freezer is not cold enough: You might have a faulty condenser fan which means the cabin temperature will increase and your freezer will not be as cool as it should.
  • Ice on the freezer floor: Why is there ice on the floor of the freezer? The drain line could be clogged meaning there is nowhere for the water to go hence it sticks around and freezes on the floor of your freezer.
  • Excess frost and ice in freezer: Excess frost and ice in your freezer might mean a damaged gasket. The gasket is now letting warm air into the freezer and this moisture is causing frost.
  • Water dispenser not working: The water inlet valve could be defective causing the water valve to stay shut and water will not flow through as it should.
  • Making weird noises: If your fridge is making unusual sounds then it could be out of kilter and need levelling.
  • A buildup of frost in ice dispenser: The ice dispenser flap could not be closing as it should, creating frost buildup in this area.
  • Leaking fridge: If your fridge does not seal properly the system is working overtime thus building up extra condensation on the coils. This condensation leads to a pool of water on the ground.

Your Refrigerator Questions Answered!

There is no known length of time as it varies with products, but a fridge will drop a few degrees every hour if there is no electric supply. When you discover something is wrong with your fridge, try not to open the door to keep the cool air inside until a repair technician can get out to fix it. Do not leave food in a broken refrigerator for an extended period or it may spoil.

32-40 degrees Fahrenheit is a good temperature for your fridge. This would be 0-4 degrees Celsius. It is always a good idea to check with the manufacturer’s suggestions to determine the ideal temperature for your specific brand.

  • Defrost your fridge on a regular basis because ice build-up makes the compressor run longer. Make sure your self-defrosting fridge is working correctly with no signs of frost or ice inside the freezer portion.
  • Let hot food cool before putting it in your fridge. Your system will have to work much harder to cool down foods because the heat will be released into the fridge.
  • A fridge has to work much harder if it is in a place that receives direct sunlight. Keep your refrigerator away from these kinds of locations or close your window coverings to prevent excessive heat.
Your fridge is designed to preserve food by maintaining an even temperature. If something is wrong with your fridge it can cause all sorts of problems, bacteria can start to form on your food or it can spoil all together if it is not staying cool. Avoid the hassle of having to throw away food due to a broken refrigerator. If there is an issue with your fridge, just call us for appliance repair services.
