00:13 Ok, today I am going to be discussing with you the five most common problems with
00:17 refrigerators.
00:18 Number one is a stuck fridge fan. When you open your fridge and it is in it’s run cycle you should hear the sound like you are hearing now, the fan motor spinning, sometimes what happens is the fan blades get stuck against the side or the fan blade itself goes so far back that it seats against the motor and than the blades get stuck and don’t turn
00:42 second most common problems with refrigerators is drips from the ceiling
00:47 now if it’s just small drips it can be caused by food put in that’s hot like
00:51 boiling or something that had boiled
00:54 and than set in the fridge without a cover on it, the way to eliminate that is
00:58 to keep a cover on your food
01:00 but if your seeing excessive drips
01:02 from the inside center here
01:04 then it may indicate
01:06 that you have a clogged condensate drain
01:09 which is a very common problem with refrigerators
01:11 The third most common problem with refrigerators is the compressor not
01:15 running.
01:15 If you listen
01:17
back here you can kind of hear the hum of
the compressor. So if you don’t hear that
01:20 sound
01:22 that low humming sound
01:24 that’s different from the fan going than
01:28 your starter may need to be replaced on the compressor.
01:31 The fourth most common problem with refrigerators is torn gaskets the way that
01:35 you prevent that from happening is to clean the gaskets here often
01:39 and to clean
01:40 the fridge surface here often
01:43 where it mates because what happens is sticky foods stick in there and than
01:47 pulling apart from the gasket
01:49 eventually can tear the gasket wear out the gasket so that’s the way to
01:54 kind of prevent it. Each
01:55 door manufacturer is different
01:57 so you might have to consult your directions on how to replace your gasket
02:01 some of them will have screws along the inside portion here
02:05 of the gasket in order to change it
02:07 others will have a press in place groove that the gasket
02:11 gets pressed into
02:12 others the entire door portion will pull apart so that you can
02:16 replace the gasket so each kind
02:18 is just slightly different.
02:20 And the fifth most common problem with refrigerators is being off balance
02:24 what you want is for when you let your fridge door go
02:28 you want it to just close
02:30 nice and gently
02:31 and close all the way
02:33 you want the fridge to aim towards the back just a tiny bit so that condensate
02:36 goes down and stays along the back of the fridge and settles into the pan
02:41 that’s on the back on the top of the compressor
02:44 usually but anyway you want your fridge to angle towards the back just a tiny bit
02:48 if your fridge is off balance
02:50 there is usually an adjustment screw here
02:52 or some fridges have a wheel that is turned here
02:55 this ones got a wheel that’s turned
02:57 as you can see one on each side
02:59 and these can be adjusted
03:02 just by lifting up a little bit
03:03 on the fridge and than turning this either by hand
03:05 or with channel locks. So that’s the five most common problems with refrigerators.
