1. Make sure the refrigerator plug is securely plugged in.

5. Eliminate the use of an extension cord, if any is being used.

  • Compressor: Humming sound
  • Gas expansion: Boiling, gurgling or hissing sound.
  • Defrosting: Water flowing sound.
** These sounds are normal and are usually an indication that the refrigerator is operating properly.**
1. Check that the refrigerator is level.
2. Check that the defrost water drain-pan on top of the compressor.
3. Inspect the compressor mounts.
The inside of the refrigerator must be cleaned. Clean the inside of the
refrigerator with a sponge, lukewarm water or carbonated water.
Some containers or package materials might cause the smell. Use a
different container or different brand of packaging material.
    Adjust the temperature control knob setting. Check that there is enough room for air to flow between the refrigerator contents. Check for air flow restrictions round the sides, back and top of the refrigerator. Check that the door is properly closed. Check the door gaskets for damage.
Is thermostat adjusted to mid setting?
Switch unit off at socket and check that the bulb is screwed in tightly. Replace bulb.
Check if gasket is sealing. Check that the door / lid is able to close
Check drain trough for blockage. Check that the area is clear between the freezer plate and the draining trough. Check that the drain-pan on top of the compressor is upright and secure. If you have an ice-maker, check the water supply hose going into and coming out of
the water inlet valve.
Clean the drain tube. If the refrigerator or freezer is located in a hot and humid area, and
the door is opened frequently, water droplets or dew may
form on the interior walls and glass shelves of the appliance.
This has no effect on the performance and the water
may simply be wiped up using an absorbent cloth.
