If your fridge isn’t cooling properly, it could be because it needs a recharge of Freon. The only way your fridge would run out of Freon is if there is a leak in one of the components. There are a few ways to see if you’re out of Freon, or if there is a different issue.
The first thing to do is to locate your fridge’s condenser. Put your hand next to it to see if it is hot. If it feels cold and the refrigerator has been running, there is a chance that you need more Freon.
The next thing you can do is unplug the fridge, turn off the temperature control, and then put your ear up against the side of the fridge. If you hear hissing and gurgling sounds, that means there is Freon in the fridge and working. If you don’t hear anything, this is a sign that could indicate a lack of Freon.
The last thing you need to do is remove the cover from the evaporator. Plug your fridge back into power and turn the temperature control back on, then let the fridge run for a couple of minutes with the door closed. After a few minutes, check the evaporator. If there is no frost, this could mean you need more Freon.
