One of the common problems with refrigerators is poor cooling. Especially when your GE, Whirlpool, Maytag, Kenmore, Frigidaire or Hotpoint refrigerator is a few years old, you can expect to face cooling issues sometimes.
Temporary Low Cooling
At first, you should check whether the issue is just temporary, and it may have occurred due to opening the door of the refrigerator too frequently in hot or humid weather, particularly if there are several people or guests at home. Such problem may not require refrigerator repair, and you can simply wait overnight, and the next morning you will find the normal cooling effect inside the refrigerator.
If the Cooling Stops Completely
Sometimes you may find that the refrigerator has stopped cooling completely, and the food and beverages inside are as warm as they are outside. In such a situation, before you call an appliance repair company, just check if the thermostat switch is set on the right level.
If that is okay, the next step should be to check whether the compressor is functioning normally. If you notice that the compressor motor is making a mild humming sound as usual, then you can assume that the compressor is working fine, and the problem may lie in some other component.
Other Potential Problems
In case you find that the compressor motor is not functioning, while the power supply to the refrigerator is normal, it may be time to call up a professional appliance Boise firm for your refrigerator repair. The defect may lie in the compressor motor, the defrost timer, the condenser fan motor, the capacitor or relay, the overload, or the thermostat.
