What is Wrong with My Refrigerator?

Most of us don’t have much patience with a refrigerator that isn’t working properly. And, since refrigerators tend to be very reliable appliances, most of us also don’t’ have a lot of experience with the problems they can have.

One of the most common refrigerator problems involves the unit not cooling properly. If this is the case, assuming that the refrigerator is still running, you probably have a problem with the condenser or the compressor.

Most of these problems will require a visit from your local Los Angeles appliance repair company. However, there are a couple of things you can check yourself first. Check inside the freezer for a buildup of ice or frost on the walls or floor. If you see frost or ice, the defrosting mechanism may have a problem.

Another common problem that can cause the refrigerator to cool poorly is dirt or dust on the condenser. This is one problem you might be able to take care of yourself. Try cleaning them to see if it corrects the problem. The coils are a black, radiator-like device behind the lower kick-panel. To clean them, disconnect the refrigerator from the power source, use a refrigerator condenser brush and your vacuum cleaner to clean the coils of any lint, pet hair, etc. You may not be able to get to the entire condenser from the front, it may be necessary to clean it from the rear, too.

In most cases, the best bet is to simply call your local Los Angeles appliance repair company, regardless of the type of problem. Your repair company can have your refrigerator back to normal in no time.
