It Takes Too Long For My Refrigerator To Get Cold
« on: June 03, 2019, 02:46:32 AM »

I don't know what the problem is, but my fridge doesn't work as effective as it used to be. It takes too long to get cold. I am thinking that the compressor is faulty but not sure about that.

I don't understand...Do you turn it off and let it get warm to check how long it takes to cool down?  If so, Why???

Is the freezer OK but the fresh food section is not.
If that is the problem then check that the damper is operating correctly.


First check/clean the condenser coils.
Clean the condenser fan blades. Also check that it is running properly.
Check/clean the vents at the front  and back of the unit.

Check that the evaporator fan is running correctly.
Remove the cover in the freezer and check the evaporator coils.
If they are heavily iced over then it is probably a defrost problem.
If there is frost in just one area usually where the freon enters the evaporator then it is probably a sealed system problem.
