A refrigerator is one of the most important appliances in your house. After years of daily use it’s normal that you may have some issues. Some problems just need a quick fix, while others will need a repair technician. Contact us today to schedule a refrigerator repair.
What actually could be the issue with your refrigerator though? There are many of common reasons that your refrigerator is not working right.
Refrigerator is making strange noises
A noisy refrigerator is often caused by a fan motor or an ice maker issue. Because there are not a lot of moving parts to a refrigerator, it is usually one of those two issues. Any sounds can certainly be annoying. Our refrigerator repair technicians will help diagnose and fix any strange refrigerator noises.
An ice maker problem can cause loud ticking sounds. An evaporator fan motor can sound like a jet gearing up for take off. A refrigerator repair service can diagnose the exact issue. They might need to repair the fan blade, evaporator fan motor, condenser fan motor, compressor, or water inlet valve.
Refrigerator Not Getting Cold
When a refrigerator is not cooling right it may be due to several different causes. It might be something as simple as the refrigerator temperature needing adjustment. Another possible cause may be that the vacuum coils are dirty. These are easy fixes that you can attempt on your own before calling a repair provider.
This issue might also be related to the condenser fan motor, evaporator fan motor, start relay, temperature control thermostat, temperature control board, start capacitor, thermistor, compressor, or main control board. You should call a refrigerator repair technician to determine one of these causes.

Broken Door Seal or Door Gasket
Broken door gaskets happen often. It’s important to check your gasket annually to verify it is in good condition. When the gasket is cracked, your refrigerator will not seal properly and this may result in the door popping open and the unit won’t remain at an even temperature.
Refrigerator is Freezing Food
When food is getting frozen, it could be a sign that the thermostat or temperature control board is faulty.
Broken Ice Maker
It is fairly common to have a broken ice maker. Your ice maker might be either overflowing or perhaps it has stopped making ice completely. This problem might be caused by a torn water line or a problem in the ice maker mechanism. This could be in the ice maker assembly, ice maker module, door switch, ice level control board, ice maker mold thermostat, ice maker switch, or water filter.
Issues by Refrigerator Type
Different types of refrigerators are prone to certain types of issues. French door refrigerators frequently have ice maker or water dispenser issues. Wine refrigerators commonly have malfunctions with temperature regulation. Garage refrigerators are more vulnerable to greater temperature variations which put the unit under increased wear.
Refrigerator is Leaking Water
The most common cause of water leaks is a blocked defrost drain. This drain is generally located on the back wall of the freezer. Dirt can accumulate in the drain line and cause blockages. This could be repaired by draining the tube using warm water or cleaning it with a pipe cleaner. If it’s not an easy fix you may require a repair technician to inspect the water filter head, water filter housing, water inlet valve, water tank assembly, drain pan, and water filter.
