The average refrigerator repair costs about $220. Actual costs may vary depending on what needs to be repaired. For example, replacing a temperature sensor can cost less, while compressor replacement typically costs more.
When the refrigerator is less than 10 years old and the repair cost is less than half the cost of buying a new refrigerator, it’s typically more economical to repair the refrigerator. It’s almost always worth it to repair a refrigerator that’s less than 5 years old because the refrigerator will likely last for many more years after it’s repaired.
- Side-by-side refrigerator repair
- French door refrigerator repair
- Top-mount refrigerator repair
- Garage refrigerator repair
- Wine refrigerator repair
Refrigerator fixes may vary by the type of refrigerator. Common problems with French door refrigerators include leaking and malfunctioning of the water dispenser and ice makers. Wine refrigerators need to stay at optimal temperatures and occasionally don’t keep consistent temperature levels. Refrigerators used in the garage must endure a wide range of temperatures, working extra hard to keep contents cool in the summer and running properly during cold winter months.

DIY QUICK FIXES: REFRIGERATOR TROUBLESHOOTING
Make sure the power cord wasn’t unplugged by mistake.
Confirm it’s receiving power. If the light doesn't 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.
If it doesn't come on after resetting the breaker, make sure the power outlet is working by plugging another item into it and checking for power.
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.
Make sure 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.
Make sure the water supply valve to your refrigerator is turned on all the way.
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.
Make sure the Lock Mode option isn’t selected on the display—this will deactivate the ice dispenser.
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.
Be sure you’ve waited long enough for the temperature to change after you’ve adjusted the controls—it can take up to 48 hours.
Turn off the ice maker if you don’t have a water supply connected to ensure the refrigerator doesn’t lower the temperature to attempt to produce ice.
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.
Check and replace the water filter if it's 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 the issue is happening in a crisper, meat, or deli drawer, adjust its airflow controls.
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.
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.
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 it back in place. * Plug the refrigerator in, turn it back on, and reset the controls to the desired temperature.
