Here are some of the most common issues your refrigerator may run into. Before you go out and buy an expensive brand new fridge, it may be a good idea to see if you can repair your current one.
Ice Maker Not Working
Before you begin diagnosing, its a good idea to turn off the water line to your house prior.
It’s possible you could have a clogged water inlet valve. Carefully check your water line for any kinks or holes.
Check your water filter for any debris that may been causing a blockage.
Frost in the Freezer
When moisture in the air is trapped in your freezer, it create condensation in the form of frost.
Check for cracks in the freezer door or seals. Clean out your door seals to ensure proper sealing. Another problem could be with your defrost sensor.
Fridge Not Getting Cold or Maintaining Temp
First, try to unplug your fridge and cleaning the condenser coils with a coil brush or vacuum. If this doesn’t work, the problem may be with your defrost thermostat. You may need a professional appliance repair technician for this. If your refrigerator is making strange noises, another good possibility could be a damaged electronic control board.
Moved And My Refrigerator Stopped Working
If you move your refrigerator to a new home, keep it as upright as possible. What happens to a refrigerator if you lay it down? The lubricant escapes from the compressor into the cooling pipes, and if you run the appliance too quickly after having been on its side, the compressor could be permanently damaged, and the fridge will no longer work. If you must lay your refrigerator down, give the lubricant several hours to settle before turning the appliance back on.
