Refrigerators may cool continuously, but they don’t always work continuously. After the required temperature is attained, the compressor usually shuts off. The thermostat inside the fridge tells the compressor to start working again when the temperature gets higher.
Your refrigerator may be working continuously for the follwing reasons:
- Your door is kept and left open frequently.
- When there are faulty door seals.
- If the temperature is set too low.
- If something is obstructing the flow of cold air.
- There is something blocking the way between the freezer and refrigerator compartments. If something is blocking the way, your compressor will keep running in order to get the desired temperature.
- Your refrigerator is filled with food.
- The temperature outside is very high.
- The gas is low in your machine. Experts like our Zimmber Champs can correctly diagnose and rectify this problem.
- A fault in the automatic defrosting system. This, again, can be diagnosed by a qualified technician.
- A faulty thermostat. This can be identified by the development of frost on the upper limits of a frost-free refrigerator. Try adjusting the cold settings. If the compressor doesn’t turn off however high you set the temperature, your cold control is broken.
