Common Sources Of Refrigerator Problems

The phrase ‘they don’t make things like they used to’ definitely fits when it comes to modern appliances. Technological advancements have made our devices smarter and more complicated to repair when it comes to a problem. The refrigerator is at the top of the kitchen’s most complex and hardest-working home appliances list. Refrigerators work around the clock keeping foods fresh, ice frozen, and water filtered. 

Due to the rigorous demands placed on a refrigerator, it’s not uncommon for problems to develop over time, such as decreased or interrupted cooling, defrost issues, drain blockage, door closing problems, and wiring complications. Many of these problems require the assistance of appliance repair services to diagnose and fix. 

Since your refrigerator is an integral part of your family’s health and happiness, the earlier you see signs of trouble, the better the chances of having repairs made before losing fresh food. Let’s look at some of the problems refrigerators experience so you’ll know what to be on the lookout for if something happens to yours. 

Defective Refrigerator MCB

The MCB is the refrigerator’s miniature circuit breaker. If your fridge doesn’t start, it could be a problem with its MCB. In this case, you’ll need an appliance repair service to correct the issue. 

Not Enough Current

Refrigerators rely on much current to operate. One of the main reasons they stop working is due to insufficient current or voltage. If you have an electric current measuring tool called a Multimeter, you can test the current and voltage of the outlet in which your fridge is plugged into. 

Faulty Compressor

The refrigerator’s compressor is responsible for its refrigeration cycle. This motor compresses the coolant or refrigerant and circulates it through the evaporator and condenser coils of the unit. Keeping compressors lubricated and clean can help you avoid loss of refrigeration.
