No matter the brand of refrigerator you own, you need to do what you can to take care of it and, should problems come up, troubleshoot the appliance. Here are the five most common refrigerator issues to watch out for.
Temperature Isn’t Cold Enough
If a fridge is not staying cold enough, there is a chance the thermostat needs to be replaced or, at the very least, the contacts need to be defrosted and the condenser coil cleaned off.
The Refrigerator Isn’t Working at All
If your refrigerator isn’t working at all (not staying cold and the light isn’t coming on), there may be a problem with the electronic control bod. This usually happens when a power surge shorts out the circuits.
Ice Maker Isn’t Working
There are a handful of causes behind this. The motor may have died and needs replacing. Other times the water inlet valve may be clogged.
No Water or Ice
If your fridge is not dispensing ice or water, there may be a clog in the filter. Changing the filter should correct this. If it doesn’t, there may be debris stuck in the inlet valve running to the refrigerator.
Odd Noises Coming from Refrigerator
There are a few different reasons why your refrigerator is making odd noises. Sometimes the electronic control board causes refrigerators to make these odd sounds. Usually, if there is damage to this board, it is best to bring in one of our professional and certified technicians to make the necessary repair.
