Not Cooling Properly
Many things can keep a refrigerator from cooling. Here is a trouble shooting guide you can use before seeking professional help. If none of these solutions fix your problem, give Liberty Appliance Repair Service a call.
- Check power to refrigerator by plugging a working lamp into its outlet
- Make sure the fridge is turned on
- Clear any food that may be preventing door from closing
- Clear any food or containers that may be blocking cold airflow into fridge
- Ensure the door fully closes on its own when released from an almost closed position (2-4 inches)
- Check and clean condenser coils
If your refrigerator has ice build up on the inside, here are a few things you can check to fix the issue. A common cause for ice buildup is a faulty door seal. If a refrigerator has a bad door seal, the outside air will pass into the fridge and cause the ice build up problem you are experiencing. Another cause for this could be the door hinges are loose or not attached properly, leading to outside air entering your fridge/freezer. Check to be sure the door hinges are tight and are attached and aligned properly.
Drips or Leaks water
A blocked defrost drain is one of the most common causes of water leaking from your refrigerator and is a good place to start troubleshooting. The small drain opening is easily blocked by food particles or ice, preventing water that accumulated during the defrost cycle from draining to the pan.
Freezes Food in Fridge
Most fridges have a cooling vent above or on the side of the top shelf. This is where most of the cold air comes from, so keeping food away from here may prevent freezing. Some side-by-side refrigerators (particularly older models) feature a vent that funnels cold air from the freezer into the fridge.
What is the inside of your fridge primarily made out of? Plastic, right? Well, plastic absorbs odors, so the problem may be the entirety of your fridge.
Solution: Cleaning can only help so much. To absorb the odors, place an open box of baking soda in your fridge (some suggest sprinkling baking soda on a plate to increase the surface area). Baking soda will soak up the unpleasant odors and leave your fridge smelling clean after about three days.
Need a faster solution? Try coffee. Place 1 cup ground coffee in a bowl or on a plate and leave it in the fridge for 24 to 48 hours. The coffee will mask the odors while it absorbs them.
The USDA suggests placing a cotton swab soaked with vanilla inside the refrigerator for around 24 hours to eliminate smells.
Sub-Zero Refrigerator Won’t Turn Off, Condenser Fan Runs Continuously
Many times, when a condenser fan doesn’t shut off, it means your fridge is running non-stop. However, with some designs, the condenser fan is hard-wired to run all the time.
Liberty Appliance has come up with a solution that fixes the issue with the older Sub-Zero refrigerators running their condenser fan all the time. Our Electrical Engineer has put together a simple redesign kit that only runs the condenser fan when it is needed.
We offer a one-year warranty on all of our parts and labor. With many of our competitors only offering three to six-month warranties, our warranty is hard to beat!
