What Common Issues Cause Refrigerator Breakdowns?

The three most common causes of refrigerator breakdowns due to wear and tear are a mechanically locked compressor, fan motor failure, and dirty condenser coils. The compressor is the heart of the refrigeration system; without it, the refrigerator won't work. Compressor motors tend to fail for two main reasons. Firstly, if your refrigerator is too old and the engine has reached its service life; secondly, the compressor motor may overheat due to intensive use (such as overfilling) and stop working.

Water leaks are a common but alarming issue in refrigerators. This problem is usually caused by a clogged defrost drain or a clogged or frozen water supply pipe. Is your ice machine broken? Is there no water? Don't worry, here are the most common problems in refrigerators, what probably caused them and how to fix them. A broken refrigerator can cost more than just replacing it; it also results in food loss in the refrigerator.

Typically, a refrigerator turns on and off while maintaining a set temperature inside the refrigerator and freezer compartments. It's easy to assume that the refrigerator has turned off when it is broken, if you do not pay attention to the temperature inside the refrigerator. Install a thermometer inside the freezer and refrigerator compartments to alert you to temperature changes. Many refrigerator problems can be solved by calling an appliance repair company in Portland.

This is especially true if you have a two-side door refrigerator that is less than 5 years old or a lower or upper freezer model that is less than 7 years old.
