The most common failures of a refrigerator

The most common failures of a refrigerator

If you have a refrigerator, you probably know that some problems are very common. If you have owned your refrigerator for a while, its life may have expired. This article attempts to guide you in recognizing the main failures and correcting them.

We recommend that you maintain your equipment properly to avoid risks. Often times we think that our device is well protected, but the best way to protect it is to ensure proper maintenance. And don't hesitate to read the manual if you have a lot of doubts.

- The power cable may be damaged or short-circuited. This is resolved by replacing him.

- Check if the compressor is doing its job. You should hear a sound as if sometimes your refrigerator is shutting down. If it's running continuously, you need to check the thermostat. If it is faulty, you will need to change it quickly as the performance of this part is critical to your equipment. Likewise, if your refrigerator is not cooling, follow the same steps. The thermostat bulb may be damaged and not output the rest or cool signal.

- Another fairly common occurrence concerns door rubbers. If they are badly damaged, they will not stick as they should and cold air will escape. What to do? Just put on new gaskets to prevent wear and tear on your refrigerator. The cold air leak damages the compressor and the thermostat.

If, despite adequate cleaning of your refrigerator and perfect maintenance of it, you observe any failures, do not hesitate to call a specialized technician. Indeed, nothing better than an expert who knows this equipment perfectly.

In conclusion, it is essential to clean and maintain your refrigerator regularly to avoid serious breakdowns. Most failures are due to a lack of knowledge about its maintenance or improper use.
