How To Resolve A Fridge Not Cooling

As a homeowner, it can be frustrating to find your fridge not cooling and not as cold as it should be, even though the light is on. This can be a sign of a bigger problem, but before you call a professional technician, there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot the issue. Here are seven ways to troubleshoot a fridge not cooling but light is on.

Check the Thermostat Settings

The first thing you should do is check the thermostat settings. Sometimes, the settings can get changed accidentally, which can cause your fridge to not cool properly. Be sure that your thermostat is set to the recommended temperature for your fridge. If it is set too high, your fridge may not be cooling as efficiently as it should be.

Clean the Condenser Coils

Over time, the condenser coils on the back of your fridge can become dirty and clogged with dust and debris. This can cause your fridge to not cool properly. To clean the coils, unplug the fridge and use a vacuum cleaner or a soft brush to remove any dust or debris that may have accumulated on them.

Door Seals

The door seals on your fridge are responsible for keeping cool air inside while preventing warm air from entering. If they're damaged or worn out in any way - such as cracks or tears - then this could allow warm air into your refrigerator compartment causing insufficient refrigeration performance.. Ensure all seals are in good condition by inspecting them for signs of damage like rips and tears.

Evaporator Fan

If you hear unusual noises coming from freezer compartment when opening doors - especially squeaking sounds-then check evaporator fan motor operation. A faulty fan motor could prevent proper distribution cold throughout compartments within both fresh food storage sections freezer unit above.
