The 4 Most Common Refrigerator Problems

The 4 Most Common Refrigerator Problems

If your refrigerator isn’t functioning properly, it may be time to schedule a service call. Here are four common issues that people have with a refrigerator:

  • It’s not getting cold enough – This can happen for a lot of reasons. It can be everything from a simple fix like the thermostat not being adjusted properly to the evaporator or condenser fans being on the fritz. A refrigerator that isn’t staying cool can lead to food spoiling prematurely, so don’t ignore this issue.
  • Stuff is freezing in the fridge – Again, this may be a simple thermostat issue. However, there are also many electrical components in the fridge that control how well the thermostat works. If changing the settings isn’t helping, you probably need a professional to check the thermistor and temperature control board.
  • Ice is building up inside the freezer – The older your freezer is, the more likely this is to happen. Usually, the issue is a problem with the seal around the freezer door. Alternatively, there could be something wrong with your refrigerator’s automatic defrost settings.
  • The ice maker won’t work – A built-in ice maker can go from a convenience to an annoyance in a hurry. The problem can be everything from the water supply line to the water filter.
