An easy solution to all problems
There are many reasons why the refrigerator may not keep food and water cold. But before we get to the simplest fixes, let’s look at the simple fixes first. 1. Make sure the refrigerator is not removed. Sometimes the plug can be pulled out of the socket when the refrigerator is pushed. A pet may need to pull on a leash. When you open the refrigerator door, the refrigerator light should be on. Otherwise, the lamp may burn out or not be fully charged.

2. Make sure the thermometer is not turned off.

3. Check the vents at the back of the freezer. Are they blocking a large container of ice cream or pizza? These vents should be kept clean to allow air to circulate throughout the freezer/refrigerator.

4. If you live in a home with pets, you can store a lot of pet hair in front or behind the steering wheel under the refrigerator. A clogged coil can cause poor cooling, so vacuum the coil thoroughly. 5. Check that the condenser fan is free of debris and spins smoothly. If your refrigerator is a newer model, it may not have a fan, but it does have a coil in the back. For older models, remove and remove the refrigerator. Clean the condenser fan and rotate the fan with your finger to make sure it is moving or stuck. Plug the refrigerator back in and check that the fan is running while the compressor is running. If the fan isn’t working, continue reading How to Change a Fan.

Replace refrigerator evaporator fan
If you hear the refrigerator compressor running, but the temperature in the room isn’t cold enough, the evaporator fan may become clogged or explode. One of the signs of a bad fan evaporator is fan noise. When the fan starts to malfunction, you will hear a grinding noise, which is louder when you open the freezer door. To inspect and replace the evaporator fan, follow these steps:

Step 1: Remove the cap
You can see the evaporator compartment cover on the back of the freezer. Remove this cover to inspect the evaporator and enter the evaporator fan. If you don’t see the main face, it will be covered with small plastics that you will have to do first.

Step 2: Remove the fan cover
If your device has a fan shroud, you’ll need to remove the screws holding the shroud in place and gently lift the shroud to expose the fan inside.

Step 3: Remove the evaporator fan
If the fan does not turn on or does not turn on, the fan needs to be replaced. Loosen the screws holding the fan in place and unplug the refrigerator before removing the fan itself. Step 4: Install the new fan
Remove the mounting bracket from the old fan motor and connect it to the new fan. Remove the wires from the old fan and install it on the new fan. Replace the fan and replace the panel.

Check condenser fan
Replacing the evaporator fan should keep the refrigerator running. If for some reason it is not leaking, the next thing to check is the condenser fan. Step 1: Locate the Capacitor
Remove the refrigerator and remove the refrigerator from the wall. Remove the rear panel near the floor to access the compressor and condenser fan room. Plug the refrigerator back in and wait for the compressor to turn back on. Fans must also be present. If the compressor runs but the fan does not, or if the fan makes noise or squeaks, the fan should be replaced. Step 2: Remove the old fan and install the new one
As with any fan evaporator, the unit will first ask you to remove the old fan bracket. Next, you need to cut the old wires as close to the old fans as possible. Remove these wires and connect them to the wiring harness of the new fan. Screw a new fan to the bracket and reinstall the fan and bracket to the back of the refrigerator. Put the lid back on, put it in the fridge, and put it back on. Now, again, you need a fridge to keep your food delicious and fresh.
