Unlike the other home electronic appliances, the fridge works 24/7 every day. So, it needs regular maintenance. You will come across some technical problems such as non-working of the fridge, non-cooling of items and more. So, let us get down to work and discuss on troubleshooting common fridge problems.

1. Motor

One common reason for the fridge problems may be the motor. The unit will neither start for whatever reason. The only way, you can make the appliance come back to normal is by replacing the motor. And yes, it is time to hire a fridge repair expert.

B. Compressor

No one, but the fridge repair technician knows the importance of compressor. The main reason for a non-working fridge may be the malfunctioning of the compressor. The responsibility is to circulate the refrigerant with the help of evaporator/condenser coils. It is necessary to clean the compressor to keep it in good working condition.

2. Common Fridge Problem - Dirty Condenser coils

What is the role of the condenser coils? They can convert hot gas to liquid. So, guess the hard work. They have to remove hot air. In the case of non-maintenance, the coils will get dirty (covered with unwanted things). So the refrigerator does not work as the heat does not get removed. You need to clean the condenser coils as per the instructions given in the instructions' manual.

3. Common Fridge Problem - Low Level of Coolant

One of the most important components of a working fridge is the coolant. If you have a low level of coolant, then the fridge may not work in proper condition. The liquid gets into circulation via the evaporator coils. The air hovering over the coils goes to the cooling mode and then to the food section. What is the worst that will happen in case of a low level of

coolants? You need to fill the liquid to the required level to ensure the fridge gets to proper working condition.

4. Capacitor

Another important component of the refrigerator. The process is as follows. You switch on the fridge. So the signal for activation first goes to the thermostat and then to the start capacitor. The triggering happens to the compressor and you can see that the fridge cycle has just begun. Now, if the capacitor has malfunctioned, the fridge will not work. The food in the fridge will also get easily spoilt. Unless you are a DIY expert, consider hiring a professional to take care of the problem.

When giving information about a home appliance, it would be wrong if there is no mention on the Internet of Things. This new technology has taken the home improvement and home appliance industry by storm.
