Ice Starts To Form In The Freezer
Most modern freezers in fridges from brands like Samsung, Electrolux, Westinghouse, Whirlpool, LG, Fisher and Paykel, Haier, Kelvinator and Bosch are usually frost free. But excessive humidity and moisture in the freezer often triggers the build up of ice inside, which is unusual.
This typically happens when the fridge door seals stop functioning correctly because they have become loose or damaged. If you notice ice building up in the freezer, then it could be because the freezer drain is clogged. Faulty seals may need complete replacement because they fail to perform the desired function. Ice can also start to form in the freezer thanks to a bad defrost timer, a faulty defrost thermostat or a defective temperature sensor.
Excessive Water Leaks From Your Fridge
Excessive water leaking from your fridge is not just a nuisance, but it also indicates a deeper problem. Leaks may occur because of a blocked defrost drain or a clogged water supply line. A blocked defrost drain could be rectified by flushing it down or by manually removing the clog. A defrost drain hose also has a rubber check valve, which needs regular cleaning. If you’re facing a water supply line problem, make sure you get a professional fridge repairs Auckland Park specialist to diagnose and treat the problem before it breaks down your entire system.
Your Refrigerator Cycle Runs Too Long
Every refrigerator follows a specific cycle, utilising refrigerant, a compressor, condenser coils, evaporator coils and an expansion drive to cool down your food. But faulty issues with single components may lead to a cycle running too long. Several issues can lead to a refrigerator cycle running too long, which can result in faulty cooling over time. If your condenser fan is damaged or if it is obstructed from running properly, then it will lead to a long refrigerator cycle. Make sure you check the power supply to see if it is on. If there’s no problem with the power supply, then the fault is probably with the motor. If your evaporator fan is defective, then the compressor operates longer than normal because the sensors fail to calculate the right temperature.
If there is any problem with your fridge’s condenser, compressor and the evaporator, you can expect your refrigerator cycle to run for longer than usual. Your fridge repairs Auckland Park specialist will have to inspect the specific problem before arriving at a feasible solution.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Refrigerator Is Constantly Cycling Or Running
One of the most common refrigerator problems is a unit that cycles, or runs, too frequently. Your refrigerator needs to run in order to maintain cool temperatures for food, and a refrigerator that constantly runs can be very noisy. Even worse, it will significantly increase your energy bill, as the refrigerator is one of the most power-intensive appliances in any home.
The most common cause of a refrigerator running too much is buildup of dust or other kitchen debris around the unit’s condenser coils. To check this, you should cut power to your refrigerator and access the coils, which are commonly on the bottom of the unit.
If the problem persists after cleaning, your refrigerator’s temperature may be set too low, causing it to run constantly to maintain a very low temperature. Try adjusting your refrigerator’s temperature to see if this impacts the cycling. Consider consulting a professional refrigerator repairman if problems persist
2. Refrigerator Leaks Water
Water leakage is a common but alarming refrigerator problem. This issue is often caused by a blocked defrost drain, or a clogged or frozen water supply line.
Your unit’s defrost drain can be blocked by food particles or other debris, and is typically accessible from inside your freezer. You can try to flush the drain from inside the freezer using warm water, though you may need to remove debris manually. Locate the defrost drain hose on the back of your refrigerator, and clean it with hot water and soap to remove any clogged debris.
Should you suspect your refrigerator’s water supply line is clogged or frozen, you should unplug the appliance and make sure its shut-off valve is closed. From there, examine the water supply line to see if there are any breaks or tears. If so, the line should be replaced. If you notice a clog that does not appear to be ice, consult with a refrigerator repair professional.
3. Ice Buildup In Your Freezer
Your refrigerator’s freezer is the perfect storage space for ice, but it shouldn’t contain significant ice buildup.
Leaving the freezer open for too long could cause ice buildup, as this raises the humidity level inside the freezer. Be sure to close your freezer door when you’ve finished accessing the unit to ensure humidity levels do not rise too much. Your freezer may also have a faulty seal, which lets in outside air to raise humidity. You can replace your freezer’s seal to ensure it holds the proper temperatures and humidity levels.
Enlist assistance from a professional refrigerator repair service if these solutions do not solve your problem.
4. Refrigerator Water Dispenser Doesn’t Work
Many modern refrigerators feature a built-in water dispenser, providing your home with cold and fresh water with ease. Your unit’s water dispenser may not work for a variety of reasons.
The water tub in your unit’s freezer door may be frozen, blocking fresh water from flowing through the dispenser. Luckily, this tub can be disconnected and thawed, allowing water to flow once again. You may also have a defective water inlet valve. The water inlet valve opens to supply the dispenser with water, but may be broken. You may also have low water pressure, meaning that water is not being pushed through the inlet valve for the dispenser. If you have difficulty solving this issue, consider contacting a professional refrigerator repair technician.
5. Refrigerator Is Warm
Refrigerators are designed to stay cold, making excessive heat from your unit particularly alarming. If you notice your refrigerator is warm, you’ll definitely need to complete repairs fast.
A warm refrigerator is likely caused by problems with its condenser coils. You can start by cleaning the refrigerator’s condenser coils, while also checking the condenser fan motor to ensure it is running properly. This problem can be particularly difficult to solve, and often requires professional refrigerator repair services to fix.
6. Refrigerator Is Too Noisy
The refrigerator should operate at a volume that does not intrude on your daily life. If your refrigerator seems particularly noisy, you probably have a problem with one of its fans.
Most common refrigerators feature both a condenser fan and an evaporator fan. The condenser fan cools your unit’s condenser coil. Meanwhile, the evaporator fan pulls air over the freezer’s evaporator coils while the compressor is running. These fans run at the same time, and issues with either one of their motors can make your refrigerator significantly louder. You can inspect these fans to see if their motors appear to be broken, just be sure to unplug your refrigerator before inspection.
