In the developed world, a refrigerator is a basic part of human existence. From dumping a few ice cubes in your drink on a hot summer day to putting away leftover food, you are probably unaware of just how often you use your refrigerator on a daily basis. That is, until your refrigerator starts to act up. A messed-up refrigerator is a major inconvenience, and can even be a health hazard, depending on the nature of the problem. Fortunately, there is help.

Common Refrigerator Problems

No part of the refrigerator is immune to trouble, but some problems occur more frequently than others. Here are just a few common refrigerator problems:

  • Improper Cooling
  • Frost Buildup
  • No Ice
  • Strange Taste to Ice or Water
  • Leaking Inside or Dripping onto the Floor
  • Strange Noises
  • Not Running at All

 

Can I Fix It Myself?

In some cases, the refrigerator needs only a minor fix to get it back into proper working order. For example, it is worth making sure that the refrigerator is plugged in and checking for clogged filters or hoses. Beyond these simple checks, though, DIY refrigerator repair is not advised.

There are two main reasons for extra caution. First, refrigerators are heavy, with many relatively inaccessible parts. Although they are normally stable, poking around and unbalancing your refrigerator in an effort to access the needed parts could cause it to tip over. In addition, refrigerators combine electricity and water, which can have dangerous results if you accidentally do the wrong thing.

Should I Repair or Replace My Refrigerator?

One of the biggest questions that people ask when they have refrigerator problems is whether it is worth investing in a repair, or if they should simply buy a new unit. The answer to this depends on the extent and price of the repair, as well as the age of the refrigerator.

Different models are built to last for different lengths of time, and some refrigerators far exceed their expected useful life. Still, if a refrigerator that is getting to the end of its expected lifespan starts to have problems, it may continue to give you trouble. Here is a quick glance at whether to repair or replace based solely on the refrigerator’s age and type.

  • Top-Freezers: Top-freezers over 7 years old should generally be replaced, while those under the age of 3 should almost always be repaired. Those in between should be handled on a case by case basis, depending on the repair and the overall condition of the refrigerator.
  • Bottom-Freezers: Bottom-freezers should almost always be repaired if they are less than 7 years old. Above that age, consider the refrigerator’s condition and the cost of the repair.
  • Side by Sides: Side by sides that are less than 5 years old should generally be repaired. Older side by sides should be assessed on an individual basis.
