The most common issues you could be having with your fridge are:
Water Leaking from Fridge
If water is leaking from your fridge it no only is a clear sign that your fridge is in need or repair, but it can also be a slipping hazard to anyone in your home. One of the most common causes is a blocked defrost drain in a combination fridge/freezer. To see if this is your problem clear out the food from the freezer section and locate the drain, usually on the back wall near the bottom. Does the drain appear to be clogged with food particles or blocked with ice? If it does you'll need to clear it out, either manually to remove debris or with some warm water to melt the ice. Then you can return the food the the freezer and see if the problem persists. If it does then you're likely to need the help of a professional to repair your leaking fridge.
The other common cause of a leaking refrigerator is a clogged or frozen supply line. To see if this might be your problem step one is to unplug your fridge. Then you'll need to locate your shut off, which is generally on the back or bottom the unit. Once you ensure that the valve is shut off you can then inspect the supply line for signs of clogs or freezing. If you see clogs you can attempt to manually clear those out. If you see signs of damage to the hose then it will need to be replaced. If this fix doesn't solve your leaky fridge then its probably time to contact a professional.
Both of these issues depend on your DYI ability and are only two examples of possible issues that could cause water leaks. We encourage you to contact us in any situation if you are unsure of the problem so that we can take care of the problem for you.
Fridge is too Warm
The first thing to look at is whether its just the fridge that is warm or if its both your fridge and freezer. If both are warm then you'll want to contact us quickly as there could be an electrical problem causing the unit to fail. If, however the freezer is cold but the fridge is warm then it could be as simple as the air flow from the freezer being blocked and not allowing that very cold air to circulate to your fridge. The most common cause for this is an overcrowded freezer. If this sounds like it could be your problem then get to work eating some of that food in your freezer to free up some space and allow the air to circulate.
Again this is just one possibility of what could be causing a warm fridge. We encourage you to always consult your fridge manual first or a professional. You should know that any DYI fix always comes with risks if you are not an expert.
Fridge is too Cold
On the opposite side of the spectrum is a fridge that is freezing your food. The first and most simple thing to do is check the temperature setting. Has it been adjusted and is now too cool? If so then turn it back up to the recommended setting and your problem is solved! If your temperature is correct then then next possible solution you could try yourself is cleaning the coils. Pull the fridge away from the wall and carefully vaccuum the coils to see if that resolves the problem. If not then it may be time to contact us.
Fridge is Noisy
We're all noticed when our fridge seems to be running all the time. The first thing to do is ensure that the fridge set to the correct temperature. Assuming that is not the problem then another simple fix is to make sure that your door is sealing properly. Check the seal and move any food that could be preventing a proper seal of the door. If that doesn't resolve the problem then you could try to clean the coils as instructed in the above paragraph. If none of these solutions work then you'll want to consider getting a professional opinion.
These are small number of problems your fridge could have. Never attempt to do a repair that is beyond your ability. Keep in mind the weight of your fridge and the fact that you could injure yourself attempting to move it. If you're not a confident DIY-er then its always best to leave these repairs to a professional.
