Refrigerator Isn’t Cooling Properly

 

 

Clean the Seal: The seal on refrigerator doors can often have food particles or other grime that allow cool air to slowly filter out of the appliance. Use a solution of baking soda and water applied with a toothbrush, then wipe the rubber seal down with a wet cloth.
 
Dust the Coils: Dirty coils make the refrigerator work harder to cool down, often resulting in higher temperatures. Located your refrigerator’s coils (either at the front base or the back of fridge) and use the brush attachment on your vacuum to clear any dust or debris.
Check the Fan Motor: The refrigerator relies on the evaporator fan motor to cool it’s compartments. Locate the fan motor (often inside the freezer) and see if you can move the fan blades. If you cannot, you likely need a new motor.
