Common Fridge Issues You Will Need Professional Help With

Even if there is a “how-to” article you found online, that doesn’t mean you should attempt to fix these issues on your own. Here are some common ones you’ll probably need professional help with.


Leaking Water

If your fridge is leaking water, it could be due to any of the following reasons:

  • The freezer drain tube is clogged
  • Your defrost drain may be blocked
  • The gasket seal on your refrigerator door may be damaged or dirty
  • You have a hole in your water line or tubing from a pinhole, crack, or other damage

Identifying the issue and repairing it on your own can be difficult. Contact a pro instead.

Running All The Time

If you notice your refrigerator running all the time, there could be several causes. However, the most likely cause is that it is having a hard time keeping itself at the selected temperature. Contact an expert to investigate this further.

Isn’t Cold Enough

Most likely, the issue has something to do with the coils. These coils are responsible for cooling down your refrigerator and keeping it at a consistent temperature. So if they aren’t working correctly, you’re going to end up with a fridge that’s just not cold enough. A experienced fridge repair specialist can help to inspect these coils and replace them if necessary.

The Fridge Is Cold, But The Freezer Has Stopped Working

The freezer should keep its temperature at or around 0°. If your fridge is maintaining it’s normal temperature, but the freezer isn’t, then something needs to be repaired. Contact a pro to help you diagnose it.
