Refrigerator or Freezer Not Cooling?
Your refrigerator is the most frequently used appliance in your home. If your refrigerator or freezer is not in tip-top shape, the consequences are disastrous, at worst or inconvenient, at best. The lifestyle of everyone who lives in your home is likely to be disrupted by a food storage appliance that does not cool effectively.
Once you realize that your refrigerator or freezer is not functioning properly, immediate attention is required to mitigate food spoilage or water leakage.
Below Are Some Possible Reasons Your Refrigerator Or Freezer Is Not Cooling:
- Dirty Condenser Coils: Hopefully, this is your problem, since it is easily remedied without service assistance. The coils are located on the back of the unit and function to dissipate heat from the internal cooling process. Simply vacuum the back of the unit for greater cooling efficiency.
- Failure of Evaporator or Condenser Fan Motor(s): Obstructions, defects, or wear and tear can cause one or more of these fans to stop working.
- Temperature Control Thermostat or Thermistor: If you can hear the compressor and fans running, these parts may be at fault. Incorrect or continuous cooling are signs that they may need replacement.
- Start Relay or Capacitor: These are parts that work together to allow the your appliance compressor to start.
- Compressor: A larger repair that will need to be diagnosed and accomplished by an appliance repair professional.
- Control Boards: Temperature and main control boards are not common refrigeration issues, and are often misdiagnosed. If your unit is not cool enough, these should be the last thing checked.
