Having refrigerator issues? If so, you've come to the right place! There are several reasons why your refrigerator could be failing when it comes to performance, but some of these problems are a quick fix that anyone can solve. Here's a look at a few troubleshooting tips if your refrigerator is acting up—or not working at all.
● Light not working?
If the light in the refrigerator isn't working, try replacing the bulb. If that doesn't bring forward a solution, test the door switch to see if it's working. Still no luck? Contact G&G Appliance Service.
● Fridge or freezer too warm?
First, make sure there's enough room in your fridge or freezer for the air to flow. Oftentimes, over packed spaces means less room for the cold air to flow. Also, make sure the vents aren't being blocked.
If there's still an issue, test the evaporator fan, defrost timer, defrost heater, door switch, door seals, and temperature control. Cleaning the condenser coils will help, but checking for a refrigerant leak or clogged drainage tube might be your answer.
● Refrigerator not running?
First, unplug the refrigerator for two hours, and then plug it back in. If it begins to run, there's likely an issue causing the compressor to start overheating. If you're still finding problems, test the compressor motor, overload protector, compressor relay, defrost timer, evaporator fan, and the temperature control. If this all fails, try cleaning the coils of the condenser.
● Refrigerator and bulb not working?
If the refrigerator isn't running and the bulb inside isn't lighting up, check and see if it's plugged in. If it is, check to see if the fuse has been blown or if the circuit breaker has been tripped. If everything looks fine, see if the power outlet is providing a current, then check the refrigerator electrical cord for any damage. If you're using an electrical cord to supply power, stop using it. From here, check to see if the voltage of the outlet can supply enough power to the refrigerator.
