There are times when a refrigerator or freezer starts to act differently. The usual quiet humming changes, water or ice appears on the bottom of the refrigerator, the food we put in there doesn’t cool enough, spoils and goes moldy. The good news may be that most of these problems are fairly easy to fix, but rarely, though it can indicate a really serious problem. What are the most common issues with a refrigerator?

If you think your refrigerator is overheating – the back wall of the refrigerator is getting hot – the problem may be a clogged condenser. This increases the load on the condenser and heats it up, causing the entire area around the refrigerator to heat up. Try vacuuming or cleaning the back of the refrigerator from time to time. Also beware of overfilling the refrigerator or placing food in the back of the refrigerator. That’s where the evaporator is, which helps maintain the temperature inside the refrigerator. If you block the evaporator, cold air circulation is reduced and cooling is not as effective.

But there are problems that signal more serious malfunctions in refrigerators. In this case it is necessary to contact a North Country Appliance Repair Company. What are the most common serious situations and require professional refrigerator repair?

Your Refrigerator Does Not Cool

There may be several reasons why your refrigerator doesn’t cool properly. The most common is a bad thermostat. It’s easy to find that your refrigerator suddenly begins to cool poorly in the spring or summer. This is due to the ambient air temperature, which, understandably, is different from the winter temperature, and the refrigerator can no longer cool the food to the right temperature. In this case, simply increase the refrigerator’s power and the problem will disappear.
The problem can also be caused by the refrigerator being too close to a heater or other heat source (stove, dishwasher, or even a window). This also increases the ambient temperature. Preferably, the refrigerator should be in a location where it is in shade most of the day, and certainly should not be near a heater. The refrigerator should also be placed away from objects and walls. Air should flow freely, especially around the back of the refrigerator. The recommended distances are 2 cm on the side and at least 5 cm on the back.

Ice Maker Malfunctions

If your ice maker is not producing ice, the cause is most likely a bad connection to your water source. It could also be that the ice maker is not working, but the cubes are being dispensed without a problem. This is a more serious problem, as it may indicate damage or even complete destruction of the ice crusher. However, we recommend that its replacement be entrusted to professionals.
