A refrigerator (colloquially fridge) is a home appliance consisting of a thermally insulated compartment and a heat pump (mechanical, electronic, or chemical) that transfers heat from its inside to its external environment so that its inside is cooled to a temperature below the room temperature
One of the most common refrigerator problems is a unit that cycles, or runs, too frequently. Your refrigerator needs to run in order to maintain cool temperatures for food, and a refrigerator that constantly runs can be very noisy. Even worse, it will significantly increase your energy bill, as the refrigerator is one of the most power-intensive appliances in any home
Water leakage is a common but alarming refrigerator problem. This issue is often caused by a blocked defrost drain, or a clogged or frozen water supply line.Your unit’s defrost drain can be blocked by food particles or other debris, and is typically accessible from inside your freezer.
Your refrigerator’s freezer is the perfect storage space for ice, but it shouldn’t contain significant ice buildup.Leaving the freezer open for too long could cause ice buildup, as this raises the humidity level inside the freezer.
The refrigerator should operate at a volume that does not intrude on your daily life. If your refrigerator seems particularly noisy, you probably have a problem with one of its fans.
