Refrigerator repair tips and troubleshooting techniques
How does a refrigerator work?
A refrigerator is very similar to a residential air conditioner. The main components is the Compressor, Evaporator, condenser and capillary tube. The refrigerant passes through copper tubing which is know as the evaporator, always located in the freezer side. As the tubes get cold, the fan circulates that cold air into the fridge side. The thermostat senses the temperature which is located in the fridge side. The thermostat shuts off the compressor once the temperature is reached, usually 40 degrees but this can be adjusted.
what is the best temperature setting:
It depends on the person, but usually a good setting from 1 to 8 is 5. Right in the middle is always best. Sometimes the freezer has a setting, this should be adjusted to 1 which mean more air flows into the fridge side. A lot of people think that turning the freezer all the way up is a good thing, it is not. It shuts a manual vent which means more air in the freezer but less air in the fridge.
There are many electrical components in a fridge
diy can be very difficult on a refrigerator repair. There is also the defrost cycle, which is made up of three main components. The timer which is usually in the fridge section, The defrost thermostat which is in the freezer and also the heater which is also in the freezer section. If any one of these go bad, you will have major problems. The compressor usually has a fan but not always. The fan cools down the compressor to make sure the compressor doesn't get to hot, if it does, it may go bad. It is not recommended to handle these problems on your own. It is always recommended to call a professional technician. Electricity and gas can be very dangerous.
