REFRIGERATOR WATER LEAKS:
Exterior refrigerator water leaks stem from a couple of different areas. Refrigerator water lines, couplers, and valves are a common failure item that can be a simple fix. Other internal leaks can be caused by a couple of water sources such as a refrigerator ice maker or a backed up refrigerator defrost drain line.
While refrigerator noises are the most difficult to diagnose over the phone, usually noise requires a moving part. There are some probable culprits when dealing with refrigerator noises: refrigerator evaporator fan motor, refrigerator condenser fan motor, refrigerator compressor, or the ice maker is the normal source of a noisy refrigerator.
REFRIGERATOR NOT DEFROSTING:
In our day and age most refrigerators are now controlled with what is called an Adaptive Defrost Control System or what is commonly known as a refrigerator motherboard. When these systems are malfunctioning the result is always frost build up on the inside back panel of the refrigerator. This can be compared to a clogged artery and will choke off airflow into the refrigerator portion of the cabinet causing temperatures to rise, but only on the refrigerator side. Other items that can cause the refrigerator to fail in the defrost operation is the defrost bi-metal or defrost thermistor. In order to repair this failure it will be necessary for a trained technician to test the components with a meter and replace the failed refrigerator part or parts.
REFRIGERATOR HOT TO THE TOUCH:
When a refrigerator condenser is clogged with dirt or lint the condenser function is greatly reduced. This type of problem will result in the refrigerator not cooling down all the way. Temperatures in the refrigerator section, as well as the freezer, can begin to rise. The solution to this problem is to either clean the condenser coils or replace the refrigerator condenser fan motor to dissipate the heat being generated by the refrigerator compressor while it is compressing the hot Freon gas.
REFRIGERATOR IS WARM ON REFRIGERATOR SIDE ONLY:
This type of refrigerator problem can be caused by the problems listed under defrost failure, but it can also come from other components. The temperature sensors inside the refrigerator are called thermistors, these carbon filled sensors have a small copper wire compressed into them and the refrigerator motherboard sends low pulse voltage through the sensor and waits for the return signal. The speed at which the signal returns will tell the computer processor what to do based on that information. The other problem can be the refrigerator damper system. This system allows airflow from the freezer into the refrigerator compartment. When this system fails, the air will not be moved from the freezer cabinet over into the refrigerator section. The only to way to accurately diagnose this problem is to have an experienced technician test the system with a meter to determine the source of your problem.
