Most Common Refrigerator Issues

Refrigerators are vital household appliance that we rely on most to keep our food fresh for our next meals and delicious dishes. A properly functioning refrigerator is a must in any household. Refrigerators come in different shapes and size, but all of them eventually encounter problems. Here is a list of most common refrigerator problems.

Refrigerator is too cold and is freezing food

If you see ice crystals forming where they should not, you may have a faulty temperature control thermostat. A malfunctioning thermostat will lead to the refrigerant system running longer than it should. If your thermistor is out of order, the compressor and the evaporator fan will run for too long causing colder temperatures. A broken temperature control board will send continuous voltage to the compressor. And a faulty damper control board that doesn’t close will let more cold air into the refrigerator than necessary.

Refrigerator light is not working

A refrigerator light that is not functioning properly is usually caused by a light board or socket that has an issue. If the light bulb is damaged, replacing it will not help solve the issue. You will likely need the help of a trained professional to install it correctly. 

Fridge is not defrosting

A very common issue that you may come across during the lifetime of your refrigerator is a fridge that is not defrosting. There are a couple things that may be at fault. If the defrost control board fails or the defrost timer is out of order, the fridge will not start the defrost cycle. If the main control board is malfunctioning, it will not send voltage to the defrost system. Other reasons for not defrosting are a defective defrost thermostat, defrost sensor fuse or a damaged defrost  heater assembly.

Refrigerator is not cooling

There are a few reasons why your refrigerator is not cooling. If your refrigerator has visible condenser coils, they could be collecting dust which is preventing them from working properly. If your refrigerator’s temperature control thermostat is out of order, it will not supply the necessary voltage needed in order for your fridge to work properly. If the condenser fan is malfunctioning it will not draw air. A faulty evaporator fan motor will not circulate air throughout the food compartment. A defective start relay as well as a faulty start capacitor will cause the compressor to not start at all. 

Refrigerator is leaking water

There are many reasons that could be the cause of a leaking refrigerator. One of the main causes is a clogged or frozen defrost drain. It leads to water overflowing and dripping down to the bottom compartment. If the water tank assembly is damaged, you will need to replace it to prevent further leaking. Water leaks happen if you have a cracked inlet valve, filter housing, filter head, or a cracked drain pan. All of these may be the potential cause.

Freezer is cool but the fridge stays warm

If your freezer stays cool but the fresh food compartment does not, there are a few things that could be the culprit. A defective defrost heater assembly will cause the frost to accumulate on the evaporator coils. A broken evaporator fan motor will not circulate the air into the food compartment. A malfunctioning temperature control board will stop sending voltage to the compressor or fan motor. A defective defrost timer will prevent the timer from going into the the defrost cycle.
