Opening your fridge to prepare that fresh crispy salad and discovering wilted lettice and limp carrots is enough to send anyone’s imagination into overdrive. Are all my veggies spoiled because of the fresh food compartment warming up? How much does a repairman cost? Can I afford a new fridge right now?
Before you resign yourself to a soggy salad and months of overtime to pay for a new fridge, take a deep breath and relax. The problem just might be an easy fix. You might even be able to do it yourself.
There can be several reasons for the fresh food compartment warming up. Start by digging out your repair manual. Unplugging the fridge before you start any kind of repair or maintenance is higly recommended.
The job of the damper contorl assembly is to control the flow of air from the freezer to the fresh food compartment. Sometimes the damper can get stuck in the closed position. This restricts the air flow causing the temperature of the fridge to rise. Replacing the damper control assembly is fairly easy. With the aid of the refridgerator manual this is a job that most people can do successfully.
The purpose of the defrost thermostat is to ensure that the defrost heater turns on and off when it is suppose to. Without the thermostat to tell it what to do the heater will not turn on. This causes build up of frost on the evaporator coils. This restricts the airflow moving through the coils thereby preventing the fridge from cooling. The defrost thermostat is also relatively easy to replace. Carefully following the instructions in the repair manual will ensure the job is done correctly and safely.
