Refrigerator Problems and How to fix them
There’s a greater demand for cold drinks, ice cubes and ice cream treats when the weather is hot and humid. That means your refrigerator got a good workout this summer, with people constantly opening and closing its doors. And considering this unusually warm fall we are having, it’s not surprising that your refrigerator might start having problems.
Although each brand of refrigerators usually has its own trouble spots, there are some problems that are common for all types of refrigerators. So, whether you own a Maytag, a Whirlpool, an LG or a GE model, watch for these signs that something’s going wrong.
- faulty thermostat
- defective compressor motor
- worn-out door gasket
- dusty condenser coils
Some problems (like cleaning condenser coils) you can fix yourself, while the rest might require professional refrigerator repair. The sooner you start troubleshooting and repair, the better your chances are for a fast and less expensive resolution.
