You are back against the wall when you find out suddenly your refrigerator not cooling. Refrigerators come with proper appliance maintenance and care requirements which is the case with other kitchen appliances too.
Refrigerator malfunctioning and undesirable defects may adversely influence on your day and stomach. If you want to keep your refrigerator running like new, perform these quick tasks. For a start bear in mind the following 5 useful tips in case your refrigerator not cooling or leaking or has some other issue.
Refrigerator Not Cooling? #1 Check the door seals
If the seal of your fridge is not loose, it will allow cold air to seep out, which will result in waste of energy and your fridge will work harder than it must and as a result you will find your refrigerator not cooling properly.
- Firstly, check, whether there are food residue in seals or not. If yes, clean the seals twice a year, using soda.
- Then, do a test: take a piece of paper of the size of a dollar bill, close it in the door the way the paper is half inside the fridge, half outside. Afterward, see if it has slipped out quickly or not. In case of positive outcome, you need the help of appliance repair professionals to check the door seals of your fridge thoroughly.
Refrigerator Not Cooling? #2 Set the right temperature
The right temperature is the key to refrigerator maintenance. So, keep the fridge between 37 – 40 degrees and the freezer at 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
Refrigerator Not Cooling? #3 Never leave it empty even if you don’t cook
To maintain a low temperature, a lot of food and drinks should be inside the fridge ( ‘thermal mass’), to absorb the warm air that comes inside it when you open a door. However, if you don’t cook at home, prefer to eat outside, or simply your fridge is too big for you, keep several bottles of water in there.
Refrigerator Not Cooling? #4 Be prepared for unexpected issues
Remember! In case of the power failure, leave the fridge door closed. A closed refrigerator keeps food safe for more than three hours. The fridge freezer will control the insider temperature for 48 hours if it is full and 24 hours if inner space is empty.
Refrigerator Not Cooling? #5 Always keep the coils clean
The refrigerator can’t work efficiently if the condenser coils are covered with dust and dirt. Two times a year reveal the coils, unplug the fridge, vacuum with the brush.
