A refrigerator is one appliance that most of us use, not just every day, but all of the time. That makes it a real issue when things go wrong.

A broken refrigerator can be a real financial setback. Especially if you've just bought out the grocery store and now have to throw it all out.

We've compiled a list of the most common refrigerator problems and what you should do if your fridge starts to exhibit signs of any of them.

Your refrigerator is leaking water.

This is a really common issue in kitchens all across the country. If your fridge seems to constantly be leaving a puddle of water underneath it then there could be a blockage in the water line.
To fix the problem, switch off the water using the shutoff valve (check under your sink). And take a closer look. It might be frozen, in which case thawing it out (by unplugging the appliance) should sort it. However, if you see any holes then it's time to call in a professional refrigerator repair service, such as Appliance Services to replace it.

Your refrigerator is too warm

If there's one thing you don't want your fridge to be, it's too warm. It needs to be between 1 and 4 degrees in order to protect the food inside. A warm fridge is a sign you need to give your condenser coils a spring clean with the vacuum. And if that doesn't work, you may have a broken condenser or evaporator fan on your hands.
If that's the case, you need to call in the pros.

Your refrigerator is cycling constantly

Your fridge shouldn't be cycling constantly, wasting energy. But if it is. It might be time to dust off those condenser coils again. They are a magnet for all of the loose dust and hair in your home. So if you have pets make sure you check the coils often to avoid any excessive build up.
If this doesn't work and you start to hear weird noises, then get in touch with a refrigerator repair technician to help you solve the problem.

Your ice maker has stopped working

The last thing you need when you're entertaining is to run out of ice. If your fridge has stopped supplying ice then it may have a clogged or torn water inlet valve.
Again shut off the water and check it out. If there's no sign of a tear, then get in touch with a repair service to solve the problem safely.

The freezer section has way too much ice

Sometimes your freezer might collect so much ice that merely opening the door provides a view to rival that of an arctic expedition. One cause of this sudden excessive build up of ice could be you. Are you leaving the door open for too long? This can up the humidity and cause ice to form.
Alternatively, you could have a faulty seal that needs to be repaired or replaced.

These are the top 5 most common refrigerator repair issues. If you have a problem that requires professional help then contact Appliance Services today for qualified repair.
