Detailed information of each component is found below.

  1. Compressor: The compressor is the main component that helps to circulate coolant throughout the refrigerator. It compresses the refrigerant gas and circulates it through the cooling coils, condenser, and evaporator.
  2. Condenser Coils: The condenser coils are responsible for releasing heat from the refrigerator. They are located at the rear of the refrigerator and use air from the surrounding area to cool the refrigerant and release heat into the air.
  3. Thermostat: The thermostat is the component that controls the temperature inside the refrigerator. It senses the temperature inside the refrigerator and then turns the compressor on and off to maintain the desired temperature.
  4. Evaporator Fan Motor: The evaporator fan motor is responsible for circulating air inside the refrigerator. It helps to keep the air uniform and cool by drawing in air from the outside and then pushing it back out once it is cooled.
  5. Evaporator Coils: The evaporator coils are responsible for cooling the air inside the refrigerator. They absorb heat from the air and then release it outside the refrigerator through the condenser coils.
  6. Door Seals: The door seals are responsible for keeping the cold air in and the warm air out. They should be checked regularly for signs of wear and tear to ensure that they are still providing an airtight seal.
  7. Ice Maker: The ice maker is responsible for producing ice cubes. It uses a combination of water and a freezing element to create the cubes.
  8. Water Inlet Valve: The water inlet valve is responsible for supplying water to the ice maker and other components of the refrigerator. It regulates the flow of water and is usually located beneath the refrigerator.
  9. Defrost Timer: The defrost timer is responsible for controlling the defrost cycle. It helps to ensure that the refrigerator does not freeze over and stops the compressor from running too often.
  10. Defrost Heater: The defrost heater is responsible for melting away the ice that builds up on the coils and walls of the refrigerator. It helps to keep the refrigerator running efficiently and prevents the coils from freezing over.

Being a contractor I always look for quality people and businesses to work with. During a renovation had an accident at a clients house. Service was fabulous and went to to do the repair the day before Christmas after a snow storm so that my clients could have their oven back for Christmas. Wonderful service.
