Signs You Need Refrigerator Service
Your refrigerator may still be keeping food cold, but that doesn't mean it's running efficiently. Some common problems to look for include:
- Reduced Cooling
- Broken Dispensers - If your dispenser isn’t providing ice, it could be for a number of reasons, including water pressure problems, issues with the temperature of the machine, or water valve malfunctions.
- Broken Lights
- Unusual Noises
- Loose Doors
- Frost Build-Up
- Ice Quality - If your ice is clumped together or cloudy and white, your refrigerator may be having problems.
- Leaking Fluids - A leak from your fridge could mean a loose connection from the dispenser, a bad water valve, a filter issue or a cracked water line among other things.
If your refrigerator is leaking from the bottom, there could be a problem with the inlet valves for your ice maker or dispenser. It could also be a supply line or internal supply line, internal kidney leaking and or condensate tray cracked so it leaks after defrost. Internal leaks can be caused by inlet valves not closing all the way, broken ice maker molds, bad or worn gaskets seals on the door, a defrost malfunction from over icing, or the evaporator run off drain being compromised in some manner.
Regular semi annual performance maintenance can help prevent leaks from happening in the first place. They can also improve the unit’s mechanical efficiencies, sanitation from mold and extend the life of the refrigerator/ freezer.
