Refrigerators are one of the most important appliances in modern households. It is the captain of the kitchen and holds the food that provides nourishment for your family. Every member of your family will open the refrigerator every day, and it is it the one household appliance that must keep working at all times to keep your household operating. In modern times, the residential refrigerator is much more than a convenience and is considered a necessity!

There are a number of things that can go wrong with your refrigerator. Below, are listed some of the more common problems and some do-it-yourself repair tips.
Excessive noise: can be caused by a number of things from the evaporator fan motor or the condenser fan motor. Start by attempting to identify where at in the refrigerator or freezer the noise is coming from. Never attempt to make repairs while the refrigerator is still plugged in!
Not cooling properly: depends on the kind of refrigerator you have and can be caused by several different issues. First, make sure that the temperature dial is turned to a cool setting and allow the fridge to attempt to cool. If the dial is set on a cool setting and is warm or not cooling enough, check the air inlet damper.
Not dispensing ice or water: does not make your refrigerator not function, which is the good news! First, check that the water lines are still connected and not leaking. If everything appears to be in order, check the owner’s manual for guidance on your specific model.
Leaking water: if there is water pooling around or leaking from the refrigerator, there are a few problems that could be causing it. If the drain is frozen or clogged, water will overflow and drip down into the bottom compartment. There may be issues with the water inlet valve or the water filter housing may be cracked. Sometimes there are problems with the water filter, either torn or dirty. Or, you may simply have a missing or broken drain pan.
Too cold: actually is a problem! Typically, people want their refrigerators cold, but if it is too cold, it will cause food to freeze. If your refrigerator is too cold, despite adjusting the temperature setting, you may have an issue with the air damper or baffle, the thermostat may need to be calibrated, or there may be an issue with the main control board. There are a variety of problems that can cause an overactive refrigerator.
