  • The fridge is not cooling: This could be due to a malfunctioning compressor or a problem with the thermostat.
  • The fridge is making strange noises: This could be due to a problem with the compressor or the fan.
  • The fridge is leaking water: This could be due to a clogged drain or a problem with the door seal.
  • The fridge is too warm: This could be due to a problem with the thermostat or the compressor.
