My Refrigerator Isn’t Cooling
As Murphy’s Law would have it, you’re probably reading this in the middle of summer with a refrigerator FULL of seafood wondering what on earth you’re going to do! But before you despair, or call your appliance repair service, read the following to give you some idea of what you’re up for!
The first thing to do when you’ve got a refrigerator that is not cooling is to check the freezer is still cooling. This is important as the way in which a fridge cools is based around the cold air moving from the freezer compartment to the refrigerator compartment, as the mechanics of the refrigerator only cools the freezer compartment itself. If the freezer is cold, then it means your compressor is working, which is excellent news as compressors are very expensive to replace, if it’s not cooling though, it may be your compressor, but it also may be a sensor or a main board, far cheaper repairs as it stands.
If the freezer is cooling in your refrigerator, then you should check if there’s an ice buildup toward to back. In the case that there is, then defrost the fridge for around 12 hours until the ice has melted and try it again. If the ice builds up again, then you should call your local refrigerator service technician to have a look for you, as it may be a PCB, sensors or even a defrost element among other things.
