How to fix a refrigerator that's not cold enough?

How to fix a refrigerator that is not cold enough?



There are several reasons for your refrigerator not to get cold enough. Please see if one of the following will solve the problem.




Check ambient temperature


The temperature outside may prevent your appliance from functioning properly, especially if it is placed in a garage or somewhere with no heating. If you think this might be the issue, relocate the appliance. 


Beko’s innovative Freezer Guard technology allows you to place your appliance anywhere in your home. Freezer units with this technology are able to function in temperatures even as low as -15 °C. 




Check the door seals for gaps, cracks, or tears


The cold air inside your appliance needs to be properly isolated from outside temperatures. See if there are gaps between the door seal and the cabinet. If you find any, adjust the door seal by gently pulling away from the door using your fingers. For any openings that persist, you may need to replace the seal.




Avoid overloading the appliance


Your refrigerator needs proper air circulation in order to function properly. Overloading it may block the airflow inside the cabinet. If cool air isn’t getting to some parts of the refrigerator, remove some of the items inside the fridge and make sure that airflow is not restricted, especially near the vents.




See if the condenser coils need cleaning


The condenser is responsible for releasing the heat your appliance produces into the air around it. Its wires cannot perform efficiently if they are covered with dirt or dust. Unplug your appliance and locate the coils either at the back or the bottom of your appliance. You can clean the coils with a gentle brush or the brush attachment of your vacuum provided it’s set to a low suction power.




Check the internal light 


If your appliance has internal lighting, its bulb should go out while the doors are closed. Try closing the doors slowly. If you don’t see the light going out, the bulb may be lit while the fridge is running and generating warmth.


If this is the case, you should call in the help of a certified technician. Meanwhile, it is best to remove the bulb. Locate the light bulb by consulting your manual. If you’re having trouble finding your manual, download it here using your product’s model number. Be careful, the bulb may be hot. 




Consider technical problems


If the problem continues, your refrigerator might have a technical problem. If you suspect that to be the case, contact an authorised service agent.
