DIY Quick Fixes: Refrigerator Repair

If your refrigerator isn’t running...

  1. Make sure that the power cord wasn’t unplugged by mistake.
  2. Confirm that it’s receiving power. If the light does not come on when you open the door, reset the breaker. If your home has a fuse box, check for a blown fuse and replace it if necessary.
  3. If it does not come on after resetting the breaker, make sure that the power outlet is working by plugging another item into it and checking for power.
  4. Look for an indication on the display that it’s running in Demo/Showroom mode and disable it if it’s active. When in this mode, the lights and display will be on but the refrigerator won’t actually be running. Refrigerators are sometimes delivered in Demo mode by mistake or it can be accidentally turned on when cleaning the display.

If your refrigerator isn’t making ice...

  1. Make sure that the ice maker is turned on—depending on your model, either move the switch/slide to “On” or move the wire arm down to the lower position.
  2. Make sure water supply valve to your refrigerator is turned on all the way.
  3. Clear any ice cubes that are stuck in the ice maker or dispenser chute. If you can’t easily dislodge the ice, try using warm water or a hair dryer to melt it.
  4. Make sure that the Lock Mode option isn’t selected on the display—this will deactivate the ice dispenser.
  5. A partially clogged filter can impact the refrigerator’s ability to produce ice so check and replace the filter if it hasn’t been replaced recently.

If your refrigerator is too cold...

  1. Be sure that you’ve waited long enough for the temperature to change after you’ve adjusted the controls—it can take up to 48 hours.
  2. Turn off the ice maker if you don’t have a water supply connected to ensure that the refrigerator doesn’t lower the temperature to attempt to produce ice.
  3. If you’ve used a large amount of ice recently, the refrigerator may have lowered the temperature to produce more. Wait 24 hours and see if the temperature returns to normal.
  4. Check and replace the water filter if it is clogged. Refrigerators will automatically lower the temperature of the freezer if ice production is low, which can happen if water can’t pass freely through the filter.

If your refrigerator is too warm...

  1. Be sure that you’ve waited long enough for the temperature to change after you’ve adjusted the controls—it can take up to 48 hours.
  2. If the issue is happening in a crisper, meat, or deli drawer, adjust its airflow controls. Sliding the drawer’s controls to a colder setting will allow more air to flow to the drawer and keep the contents colder.
  3. If the condenser coil is accessible from the front of your machine (behind a removable grill near the floor):
    • Turn off your refrigerator and unplug it.
    • Carefully remove the grill and vacuum any dust that is under the refrigerator or on the grill.
    • Clean the grill with mild soap and water and put in back in place.
    • Plug the refrigerator in, turn it back on, and reset the controls to the desired temperature.
