Causes of Refrigerator Overheating
Depending on the usage conditions of your refrigerator, it exhibits unexpected behavior in some periods. One of these problems is the overheating of the refrigerator. Overheating occurs for many reasons. You may feel warming between the doors of the refrigerator and freezer areas of your refrigerator and on the sides of the same compartments. These temperatures indicate that the heaters are working for your refrigerator to work properly and this is normal. In fact, these warmings show that the refrigerator is working well. This heating of your refrigerator is valid if there is no loss of cooling or any malfunction.
If there is something stuck around your refrigerator, it prevents it from ventilating. For example, things such as kitchen cabinets or countertops should not be stuck to your refrigerator. If the back of your refrigerator is attached to the wall, you should pull it forward a little, leaving a gap of at least 5-10 cm between the refrigerator and the wall. If it is adjacent to the wall, it will cause your refrigerator to heat up. You can prevent your refrigerator from overheating by removing the cover that protects the engine at the back of your refrigerator. However, you should do this on the condition that it does not create a danger.
One of the reasons for the heating of your refrigerator is that if you put too much food in the freezer parts at the same time, they get hot. Because the freezer part of the refrigerator is overloaded, the refrigerator will force itself to freeze them. In this, the engine of the refrigerator will force its operation and will tire the engine, as a result of which the refrigerator will start to heat up. To avoid this, you should not overdo it when placing food in the freezer section. Otherwise, the refrigerator will force itself very hard and even go to the point of burning the engine. This will cost you extra.
If your outdoor fan is not working, it will cause the engine to overheat and may cause the engine to burn out. You can get rid of this problem by replacing the refrigerator fans.
Overheating of your refrigerator may also occur during seasonal changes. In such cases, you can solve it by adjusting the settings of your refrigerator according to the season.
