Let us discuss the most common refrigerator problems.

What can cause a refrigerator to stop getting cold?

Clogged coils can cause poor cooling. Check to make sure nothing is stuck in the condenser fan. And that it spins freely (models with coils on the back won’t have a fan). To do this, you should unplug the fridge and pull it out. Plug in the fridge and make sure the fan runs when the compressor is running.

How do you troubleshoot a refrigerator problem?

  1. Check the temperature setting.
  2. Assure that there is enough room for air flow in the refrigerator or freezer.
  3. Check for air flow restrictions in vents.
  4. Test the temperature control.
  5. Clean the condenser coils.
  6. Check the door seals.
  7. Test the door switch.
  8. Test the defrost heater.

Is it worth repairing a fridge? Our technicians can easily solve fridge repair problems! But take into consideration the following facts!

Built-in refrigerators are almost always worth repairing. Not only are they less expensive to repair but typically have a longer lifespan anyways. And you should repair side-by-side refrigerators  within a five-year window. And think of replacement after that.
