Fridge is warm, freezer is ok

You are facing a rather typical problem with your fridge if it isn't cold yet the freezer is working fine. The most common causes of this are frosted evaporator coils, malfunctioning damper controls, or malfunctioning evaporator fans. Don't worry, it's an easy fix that we can usually assist with the same day.

  • ● Compressor: Another costly and frequently misunderstood fridge repair problem is the compressor. Refrigerant is pumped through the coils of the evaporator and condenser by the compressor. Before assuming that a malfunctioning compressor is the cause of the issue, all other components need to be examined. A multimeter can be used to check its continuity.
  • ● Two Evaporator fan motors: One for the freezer and one for the refrigerator—are found in some refrigerators. Air is circulated throughout the refrigerator by the evaporator fan motor, which also assists in drawing air over the coils to cool it. If the fan blade still does not spin after trying to crank it by hand, the motor needs to be replaced. The noise can potentially originate from the motor. To ascertain whether the motor has continuity, a multimeter can also be used to check it.
  • ● Temperature Control Board: Be careful as this is a regularly misdiagnosed item. Examining every other potential component first is crucial.
  • ● Thermostat: A refrigerator's compressors and motors receive a lot of voltage from the temperature control thermostat. Try turning the thermostat from low to high and see if you hear a "clicking" noise. It should be fine if it clicks. You can also use a multimeter to check if the thermostat has continuity on all of its settings.
  • ● Condenser Coils: Easily filthy, the condenser coils are under the refrigerator. As refrigerant passes through these coils, heat is dispersed. The coils require cleaning if they become dirty because they stop functioning as well. Yes, it's a simple solution!

Fridge is leaking

You should get a leaking refrigerator fixed right away since it might cause water damage to your house or place of business. The reason of the leak is frequently a frozen or plugged defrost drain hose. In other situations, a broken water inlet valve may be the cause of the refrigerator's leak.

  • ● Water Inlet Valve: This valve permits water to enter the ice maker and water dispenser. It's possible that you can manually tighten the valve. Examine the water inlet valve for any fractures and replace it if necessary.
  • ● Defrost Drain: Water will overflow the drain trough and finally find its way onto your floor if the defrost drain is frozen or clogged. You might try flushing the drain with hot water if it's frozen. Check for obstructions as well.
  • ● Water Tank: There may be a leak in the water tank assembly. It can be little, so be sure to examine closely. The water tank needs to be replaced if a leak is discovered.
  • Water Filter System: The water filter head, housing, seals, filters, and water tank assembly make up the water filtration system. They should all be thoroughly investigated because they might all be the source of a leak.

Fridge is noisy

Check for ice buildup in the area where the evaporator fan blades are grinding against if the refrigerator is making strange noises or running at a high speed. If the condenser fan is malfunctioning or there is something lodged in its blades, it could potentially be the source of the noise.

  • ● Condenser and evaporator fan motors: The evaporator fan motor needs to be changed when it breaks down since it can make a lot of noise. Usually found behind an access panel at the rear of the refrigerator is the condenser fan motor. Its bearings may need to be replaced if they fail.
  • ● Fan Blade: Worn fan or condenser fan blades are the most frequent cause of refrigerator noise. Try turning these blades by hand if you can. Check for friction and any obstructions if they are unable to turn freely.

Fridge is not defrosting

Our fridge's malfunctioning temperature control sensor (thermostat) is most likely the reason for our fridge behaving like a freezer and freezing our food. The thermistor, which measures the air temperature and transmits values to the control board for modifications, occasionally has to be replaced. Additionally, our temperature control board occasionally just quits up.

  • ● Dumper: Together, the damper and damper control assembly allow the right quantity of air to enter the refrigerator compartment. It can be broken or stuck open.
  • ● Thermistor: This device keeps track of the temperature of the air and reports its reading to the control board. A multimeter needs to be used to check it. Depending on the refrigerator's temperature, the thermostat will have varying resistances; if it stays the same, it needs to be replaced.
  • ● Thermostat:The compressor, evaporator, and condenser fan motors are all under the direction of the temperature control thermostat. By turning the temperature dial on your refrigerator from low to high and listening for a "clicking" sound, you may test your thermostat. It's usually fine if you hear a click. Use a multimeter to test the thermostat if there isn't any clicking.

Fridge is not making ice

It can appear straightforward yet in most circumstances, we are not going to receive our desired ice owing to a high temperature in our freezer. We might not get ice if the temperature is higher than -12C (10F). To address this issue, simply lower the temperature. Occasionally, however, the ice maker may simply need to be replaced due to a malfunction.

  • ● This is the simplest way to fix a freezer that is too hot! The ice maker in your freezer will not work correctly if the temperature is set too high. The ideal temperature range for your freezer is -14 to -18C.
  • ● Ice Maker Assembly: Essentially, the ice maker assembly is the complete ice maker device, comprising all of its components. Occasionally, the complete assembly of an ice maker needs to be changed since individual parts are not readily available. Pro Tip: Prioritize inspecting the fan, water line, and water inlet valve.
  • ● Water Inlet Valve: The ice maker receives water from the water inlet valve. It is managed by electronics. In order for this valve to function correctly, the water pressure must be at least 20 psi. You can check the valve with a multimeter. You must also assess whether the water pressure in your residence or place of business is enough.
  • ● Water Filter: It's recommended to replace your water filter every six months. It happens all the time that a blocked or filthy filter can impair water flow into your ice maker.
  • ● Ice-maker Module: The ice cubes are ejected into a bucket or tray using the motor in the icemaker module. In order to restock the tray with water for the subsequent round of cubes, this module signals the water inflow valve. The first thing you can try is ensuring sure the on/off switch is set to "on," depending on the model of your refrigerator. Additionally, attempt to move your bail arm to the down position. The appliance might also include frozen cubes. Unfortunately, the ice-maker module is a complex component that can cause many additional problems that our skilled freezer repair technicians can assist diagnose.

Refrigerator runs constantly

Numerous problems might cause a refrigerator to run continuously. While some may be simple repairs, others may require much more work. Thermostats, temperature setup, and filthy condensers and coils are the most frequent reasons.

  • ● Door Gasket: It is possible that the gasket has become uneven or damaged. An unfastened door may possibly be the source of the issue.
  • Temperature of Freezer: The ideal temperature range for your freezer is between -14 and -18 degrees Celsius. Your refrigerator will operate longer hours if the temperature is not lowered enough.
  • Condenser Coils: You should clean your condenser coils twice a year. They are quickly soiled and are situated beneath the refrigerator. When refrigerant flows through condenser coils, heat from the refrigerator is released. Your fridge needs to operate harder the dirtier they get.
  • ● The purpose of the defrost thermostat and heater assembly is to prevent frost buildup on your evaporator coils. The refrigerator may run nonstop if they are broken. A multimeter can be used to check them.

Refrigerator defrost drain clogged

Defrost Drain: It's likely that the defrost drain is plugged or frozen. After thawing it out, look for any obstructions.

  • ● A drain strap is a little metal item that fits into the defrost drain and fastens to the defrost heater. Its purpose is to prevent freezing of the drain. It need inspection and might require replacement.
  • ● Certain refrigerators are equipped with drain heaters to keep them from freezing. It may be frozen, broken, or positioned incorrectly, which could be the cause of the defrost drain freezing.
