Questions and Answers about Appliances
What can I do if my fridge is running but not cold enough?
- Turn the thermostat up to the next highest setting. If it comes on, let it run for 24 hours and then check the temperature to see whether it is working properly.
- Make sure nothing is blocking the air flow around the refrigerator. There should be a 3-inch clearance all around (on top, underneath, behind, on both sides, and in front).
- If there are condenser coils on the back of the fridge, make sure it is several inches from the wall. Make sure nothing is on top of the fridge at the rear, because this could block the heat from escaping off the coils.
- If there are condenser coils underneath the refrigerator, clean them thoroughly with a vaccum cleaner at least twice a year.
- All refrigerator coils need to be cleaned at least once a year.
- If the fridge seems to be constantly running, it could mean the refrigerant level is low, a condenser coil is dirty, a seal is malfunctioning, or it has improper air flow.
Why is my refrigerator door sticking? It won't close properly.
- Use a wet cloth to wipe off the gasket - the narrow rubber seal that goes all around the inside edge of the door.
- Make sure all shelves, drawers, and food are not sticking out and preventing the door from closing.
