Some problems can deal with a DIY repair, while some will need the work of an expert. Prior to scheduling a service appointment, go over these possible causes and simple fixes to get the fridge back to optimum performance as fast as possible.
Not Cooling Or Too Warm
There could be some causes of a refrigerator that isn’t as cold as you think. When it’s just been connected, you have just put in much food or the doors have been opened regularly, you may require to wait up to a day for the temperature to fluctuate. When not, go over these other works to determine the cause.
Change The Temperature
The standard temperature for the refrigerator is 37°F. However, if the fridge is located beside the heat source or in an area that’s hotter than usual, you would need to change the temperature from the settings.
Adjust The Setting
A setting that prevents cooling could have been unintentionally switching on. For example, several fridges have cooled on and offsetting, a power outage setting that is activated following a power outage, or a showroom model that must be switched if you bring the fridge home.
Check For Obstructed Vents
There must be vents in the fridge that facilitate airflow from the freezer to the refrigerator and keep things cool. See to it these aren’t clogged by food items.
Ice Maker Not Making Enough Ice
A common ice maker should make about three pounds of ice every day. When the fridge was just connected, it may take a day for ice production to start and up to three days for complete ice production. When a big amount was just taken out, it could take a day to fully replace. Once the ice maker isn’t producing enough ice, try these steps before calling in a professional:
Check If Ice Maker Is Turned Off
In some cases, the ice maker of the fridge can be unintentionally switched off. Turn it back on by adjusting the dial or the lever over the ice bin down.
Examine Water Line For Kinks
Look for the water line at the back of the refrigerator. When it’s contorted or kinked, fix it to improve water flow.
Fully Open The Water Shut-Off Valves
See if the refrigerator is connected to the water supply behind the unit. If it is, ensure that water shut-off valves are completely open. The main valve is normally located below the sink, in the cabinet beside the fridge, or in the basement, while other valves may be installed in the tubing.
