Approximately once every 20 minutes, the compressor of any refrigerator model should turn off. If this does not happen and its operation mode is disturbed, then this indicates that there are problems in your unit. The cause of such a breakdown is easy to find out, and some of them can be eliminated independently.
It is clear that if the control module of the refrigerator is out of order and you need to reflash it, then trying to fix such a breakdown yourself is unlikely to work – it is better to immediately contact a service center for help.
Let’s look at the main actions in the event of such a breakdown.
First of all, you need to turn off the refrigeration equipment and defrost it. After cleaning the chamber, try to turn it on again. Very often, with the help of such a simple procedure, you can adjust the operation of the device.
If this does not help, make sure that the refrigerator is used correctly. Even the highest quality and most expensive refrigerators can break due to violation of basic operating rules.
The refrigerator should not stand next to other appliances that emit heat so that the compressor does not overheat and does not work to wear.
Perhaps your unit is installed too close to the wall. There must be a gap of at least 10 cm between the casing and the wall. This is necessary for normal ventilation and for normal operation of the compressor. Also, do not install the refrigerator near the window – the sun has a bad effect on its operation.
Such a device can stop turning off, both in a warm room and in a cold one. Therefore, the kitchen is not quite an ideal option for installing refrigeration equipment. After all, the temperature here is usually higher due to the operation of other devices. As a result, the compressor has to operate in an enhanced mode.
Especially the load on the refrigerator increases in summer. It is then that many users set the minimum temperature in their unit, which is a very big mistake and leads to continuous operation of the unit.
So, the main reasons why your unit will run non-stop:
– Broken refrigerator thermostat, which regulates the temperature in the refrigeration equipment.
– The “Super Freeze” mode is enabled.
– The refrigerator door does not fit tightly.
– There is a leak of refrigerant, without which there is no cold production.
As a rule, only a real master can find out the exact reason why the refrigerator does not turn off for a long time. Therefore, when such problems appear, it is better to immediately contact a specialist.
Whether you can find the breakdown yourself or at some stage of the search call the master – you decide. We only note that in the absence of experience in disassembling and assembling refrigerators, it is better to limit yourself to external inspection and search for simple damage, and then call our master.
