The refrigerator is the most commonly used appliance in any home, and it is taken for granted more than any other. Rather you need a drink, or you are grabbing a quick snack, you open the door, get what you came for, and close it back up. It may take a while to notice if your fridge isn’t working correctly. There are a few signs to warn you that there is a serious problem with your appliance.
4 Warning Signs
Not Running: a clear sign that there is a serious problem is when your refrigerator stops running. However, this is something that you may not notice right away, unless your house is extremely quiet.
Compressor: if your compressor is the problem, you won’t be able to hear it run. In the back of your fridge you should hear a humming noise, this is a sign of the compressor functioning properly.
Frost Buildup: when frost builds up on the coils on the inside panel of your refrigerator, this can cause your refrigerator’s temperature to be erratic.
Condenser: there are coils that are located under the fridge; when they become dirty from built-up dust, and dirt, they can cause serious problems with your condenser.
If you notice any of the above signs, make sure to call a professional right away. Many people choose to put off repairs for various reasons, but having your appliance fixed at the first sign of a problem can save you time, and money.
