Fridge or Freezer won't CoolOne common fridge malfunction is the loss of electricity. If the inside light doesn't come on, check the fridge is plugged in and check the breaker panel. If this doesn't help, try these fixes to restore the chill:
Check thermostat and vents. Has the temperature control dial inside the fridge been turned down? Are the fridge and freezer vents blocked by food containers?
Clean the coils. Air must flow freely through the condenser coils to chill the fridge. Generally, these coils are on the back. Items on top of the fridge or stuffed behind it will reduce the airflow. Newer fridges have coils underneath, and may be blocked or plugged with objects or dust. To keep the fridge efficient, pull off the front grille and clean the coils. Do annually, or each 6 months if you have pets. Buy a long brush for $8 for this job.
Free up the condenser fan. Coils on the back of a fridge create airflow as they heat up. Models with coils underneath have a fan. Dust buildup can slow the fan; trash can stop it altogether.
