To troubleshoot a refrigerator or freezer, start by looking at the common warning signs. This includes a freezer that doesn’t get cold enough, a refrigerator making too much noise or clear signs of a leak.
After determining the main problem based on the type of warning sign, troubleshooting it becomes a lot easier. For example, when the refrigerator or freezer is too cold or not cold enough, it is often due to a blockage or the thermostat. Start by checking the thermostat to be sure it isn’t working properly. After that, check for blockages inside and behind the refrigerator.
A refrigerator making a lot of noise could be from the coils needing to be cleaned or an electrical issue.
