Why Is Your Refrigerator Not Cooling Effectively?
By Northeast Appliance Service, LLC on 2016-07-15
When a refrigerator is not cold enough to keep your food and beverages fresh and chilled, you might be tempted to call in a fridge repair specialist right away. However, there are a few ways you can troubleshoot a refrigerator not cooling on your own. For instance, bumping the temperature controls up a notch might be the key. Or the problem might lie in how you've filled the fridge. There needs to be enough inside that the food items can help maintain the cold temperature. However, large boxes and containers can keep the door from closing all the way or block the flow of cold air, both of which can affect the internal temperature.
Here are a few other things to check:
- Is the interior light going out when the door is closed?
- Is there at least one inch of air clearance on all sides of the appliance?
- Is the fridge in an area that generally remains between 60°-110° Fahrenheit?
