Our refrigerators run with due diligence day and night, no matter the weather outside, without ever complaining.

But there comes a time in the lives of all refrigerators when refrigerator appliance repair is the rule and not the exception.

How do you know, however, that your faithful food storage is on the way out and not simply crying for help?

In this post, we’ll lay out some of the warning signs that your refrigerator may require repair.

Water puddles appearing under the refrigerator is never a good sign. On one hand, it might mean that you have a leak from somewhere like the ice maker. On the other hand, it might mean that something far worse is happening. An appliance expert can tell you which is which.

Water puddles inside your fridge might be there from a leaky container. Or, and worst of all, the puddle might be from a leaking drain tube. If you’re certain that you didn’t cause the spill, a technician will need to trace the tube back and search out the cause of the clog.

– Constant power cycling is a sign that something bad is happening or is about to happen to your fridge. Dirty condenser coils  will cause a refrigerator to power on and off due to blockage. A repair expert can look closely at your condenser coils and decide your next step.

Last, if your refrigerator ceases to cool effectively, it could be a host of associated mechanical issues. Because there is no way to diagnose a problem like this without a physical inspection, you need to call in a professional appliance service right away to decide on a course of action.
