Common Freezer Issues
When you’re experiencing trouble with your freezer, you may feel like you’re the only one. However, chances are good that you are experiencing one of the more common freezer issues out there. Here are some of the most common freezer issues we tend to see when we’re out in the field.
A water leak is one of the worst things that can happen in your home. Not only is it dangerous in that someone can slip and fall, but the effects of water damage can also be catastrophic. The thing is, when it comes to your freezer, there may actually be a few explanations for water leaks.
One cause of freezer leaks is a blocked defroster drain. You can try fixing this yourself by using warm water and one of those thin plumbing snakes to unclog the drain hose. (If this doesn’t work, you can always give us a call at Top Shelf.)
Another cause of a freezer leak is a water supply that is either clogged or frozen. One way to diagnose this is to evaluate how well your ice maker and water dispense are working. If these two seem to be operating at a subpar level, that’s a good sign that the issue has to do with your water supply.
To try to fix this yourself, unplug the refrigerator and turn off its shut-off valve. Check out the plastic water supply line. Are there any issues with it, like tears or other damage? If so, then you will need to replace it.
If your freezer is making strange noises, this can be a cause for concern. Typically, if your freezer is making an odd noise, this is a sign that you need to replace the evaporator fan motor. However, no two sounds are equal when it comes to a freezer. Here are some examples of common sounds and what they could mean:
- Swishing or Whirring – This is the sound a multiple-speed fan makes as it increases its speed.
- Sizzling – This is the sound some freezers make as it enters its defrost cycle.
- Gurgling – Your freezer may “gurgle” during its defrost cycle as water drains off the evaporative coil.
- Clicking – Your ice maker may “click” as it prepares its next lot of ice.
If your freezer is newer, you may not know whether the sounds it makes are normal yet or not. To determine this, you need to evaluate your refrigerator. Is it making ice the way it’s supposed to? Is it leaking at all? Is it as cold as it should be? If everything seems copasetic, then the noises your freezer is making may be perfectly normal for that make and model.
The last thing a freezer should be is warm, so if your freezer is not making your food as cold as it needs to be, then you may need to replace your defrost thermometer. This is especially true if you notice your fridge is keeping everything cold, but your freezer is falling behind.
Here’s something you may not know. You can actually cause your freezer to have issues if you overfill it… or if you don’t fill it up enough. Too much food and the air inside cannot circulate properly. Too little food and you gush all the cold air out every time you open the freezer. Experts recommend that for better efficiency you should always keep your freezer between 70 and 85% full.
