Common Refrigerator Problems To Tackle Quickly

by Eliza Chapman

Everything may be going fine around the house until your refrigerator acts up. It's an essential appliance that you always want running smoothly. If these particular issues show up, then you need to respond as quickly as you can.


If you notice that your refrigerator is leaking water, either inside or outside, then you want to take this problem seriously and see if you can find a solution right away. There are a couple of components to check when a refrigerator leaks, such as the drain pan and door gaskets.

If the pan is full of water, any additional water will cause it to overflow. You'll want to dump this pan to keep water from spilling out. If it continues filling up quickly, hire a pro.

If your door gaskets are damaged and not creating a quality seal, that can also cause refrigerator leaks. You'll need to find a replacement for this issue.

Malfunctioning Thermostat

Refrigerators are able to stay at a certain temperature range because of their thermostats. If you have a malfunctioning thermostat, you'll know because your refrigerator won't get cold or it will get too cold and ice will be everywhere.

Both problems require professional assistance from a refrigerator repair specialist. Let them look over the faulty thermostat and see what solution is appropriate.

If the damage isn't too bad, the thermostat may receive a couple of adjustments and work just fine after. If the thermostat is no longer operable, then rely on the repair specialist to help you find and set up a replacement.

Loud Noises

Any type of refrigerator shouldn't make a lot of noise if it's working great. If you do hear loud noises and they continue throughout the day, then addressing these noises quickly is important for minimizing part damage and other disasters.

The refrigerator could be making a loud noise because it's simply not level, it has parts not functioning correctly like the condenser fan, or its systems are too dirty.

If you're not able to pinpoint the source of the loud noise, hire a professional so that you don't have to live with a loud refrigerator for long.

Some refrigerator problems are minor and can be repaired at a later date. Then there are some that need to be addressed immediately. If you deal with the latter correctly, then there's a good shot of coming away with a more affordable and effective repair.

Dealing With Furnace Problems

A few years ago, I could tell that we were having serious furnace problems. In addition to dealing with a house that was constantly too cold or too warm, we were also plagued by a noisy, smelly furnace that seemed to have trouble on a daily basis. Unfortunately, I didn't know enough about furnaces at the time to spot the problems quickly. One day, the entire system died, and it was beyond repair. After having that experience, I learned a lot about HVAC systems, so that I could troubleshoot future systems. This website is all about teaching you what you need to know so that you don't end up in the same situation.
