Turn the thermostat up to the next highest setting. If it comes on, let it run for 24 hours and check temperature to confirm it is working properly.
Clear/remove anything blocking the air flow around the outside of the refrigerator (on top, underneath, behind, beside, in front of, etc.). Allow 3" of clearance all the way around.
If there are condenser coils on the rear of the box, make sure the box is several inches from the wall and that nothing is on top at the rear, blocking the heat from coming off the coils.
Wipe off the face of the gasket with a wet rag and make sure the interior shelves, drawers and food are not preventing the door from closing from the inside.
If your compressor is making noises while running, or if you find that it is running for what you believe to be an extended amount of time this could be a bad sign. The compressor may need to replaced, and a technician should be called.
If you find that your condenser fan is loud, and is making noise you may just have a dirty fan. This can be taken care of with a brush attachment on a vacuum. If there is an ice build up or if you notice the fan is not running at all then a call to your serviceman is necessary. If you don't clean a condenser fan it may get easily overheated and break, that will evenentually lead to a refrigerator repair. The other point is a dirty fan and bad air flow could be a cause of the high electric bill. Therefore a regular cleaning is one way to prevent your refrigerator to break and you may not need to request a refrigerator repair service.
Refrigerator evaporators and coils should be cleaned at least once a year. If you have pets it may be recommended to clean the coils twice yearly. Pet hair, dust and other debris and material can catch on the coils causing the refrigerator to warm up and not cool properly. Some customers are comfortable using a vacuum and a brush attachment to clean debris. Make sure to unplug the refrigerator before any cleaning is started. If you would like to have the coils cleaned professionally, we offer a variety of maintenance plans to get the job done.
Whether you need general maintenance or a repair for your refrigerator, we have a technician that will be able to help you and get things back on track. Our expert technicians carry factory parts and can diagnose and usually repair problems same day. Let us help you get things back in order.
