Reason Why Your Refrigerator Won’t Stay Cool

Let’s start off with the “good news” potential causes. These are pretty straightforward and often have a quick and easy DIY solution. Check to see if:

  • Your settings were changed. All refrigerators, even very old models, have a temperature control system. It can be as advanced as a control panel or as simple as a dial with a series of numbers on it. Be sure that this hasn’t been changed without you noticing, say by someone bumping it while stowing the milk carton.
  • Your door isn’t closing. Check to make sure that your door is closing completely so all the seals are making proper contact. If they aren’t, ensure no items are obstructing it from closing. If there’s no obvious cause, check that your fridge door’s hinges are intact and undamaged.
  • Your fridge has too little or too much in it. Too many items can stop your fridge from supplying enough cool to get the job done. But more surprisingly, too little in your fridge can also keep it from maintaining temperatures! This is because items hold the cold and reduce the amount of warm, open air in your fridge. If you’re struggling with this one, some jugs of water or even storing some non-perishable foods in there can fill in space quite well.
