Troubleshooting Common Refrigerator Issues

If I ask you what home appliance you use the most, you will give me different answers. However, if I asked what is the home appliance that works throughout the day, the answer is obvious; it is the refrigerator or as commonly called the fridge.You would not even consider switching it off even for a few hours as you are worried that the goods inside will rot and we all know what a hassle it is when there is power cut and the fridge is not working. Therefore, I assume it is safe to say that we all want our fridges to work perfectly all time.

In view of this, listed below are the most common issues you face with a refrigerator and the possible causes.

Refrigerator is not cooling

This is one of the worst things that can happen to a person. A fridge is supposed to cool and when it is not doing this, it is an utter menace. There can be many reasons for this and if you know a bit about how the appliances function, you can also try to correct the issues; of course only if the warranty period has expired. Otherwise, you will not get the warranty as a result of your experimenting.If this happens, the problem is generally related to the power supply or the cooling coils. You can check them yourself or else can get the assistance of a professional as is generally recommended.Also do not forget to check whether the cooling dial is working properly.

Water puddles

This is a common problem with old refrigerators but may not be that common with the modern ones. Once again the problem can be related to the coils from Austcoil or there can be issues with electricity supply.

Refrigerator does not stop

If you observe closely you will realize that the refrigerator does not in fact run all the time. It stops for a while and then starts running again after some time. So if your fridge is running without stopping, there may be something wrong. However, you should keep in mind that this behaviour may also be due to the environmental factors such as too much heat in the place where the fridge is kept or you may have put hot food inside the fridge or you may just be opening the door too frequently.Get the assistance of a professional if the issue is with the coolant as low coolant levels may also make the fridge work extra.

The above are only the most common issues and you may have faced many other issues which are not so common.
