How long does your refrigerator last? The average refrigerator today lasts for around 14 years with proper care and maintenance. There are several common refrigerator problems that are relatively easy to repair and stay ahead of. It's often more cost-effective to repair a refrigerator than to replace it.

To determine whether to repair or replace your appliance, consider the item's age and the cost of repair. If the appliance is over halfway through its expected lifespan, and the cost of repair is 50% more than the cost of a new item, it may be time to get a new machine. If the unit is newer, or if the cost for the repair is less than 50%, it's likely more cost-effective to repair the appliance.

Perform Regular Maintenance to Maximize the Lifespan of Your Refrigerator

Performing routine maintenance on your refrigerator can extend the lifespan of the unit. Replace the air and water filters every six months to keep your refrigerator operating effectively. Perform other refrigerator maintenance tasks regularly as well, such as cleaning all door seals with soapy water and cleaning dust and debris from the coils.

If your refrigerator stops working properly, one of the first things to inspect is the refrigerator coils. Once the coils are clean, see if the fridge operates correctly. If the refrigerator still isn't cooling properly or has other issues, it may need to be repaired.

Refrigerator Parts for Most Common Repairs

While performing maintenance is important, it's also important to get proper repair of large appliances when they break. When purchasing repair parts for refrigerators or other large appliances, it's usually ideal to get parts sourced directly from the manufacturer to attain the best results. The manufacturer's parts are often better quality than aftermarket parts, which also may not fit as precisely as replacement parts from the manufacturer.

If a refrigerator isn't functioning properly, some of the most common repairs for refrigerators include the following:


A common problem with a refrigerator is when the fridge either doesn't cool the food enough or freezes food. If the cooling system isn't working properly, it's often an issue with the thermistor. The thermistor monitors the fridge temperature and sends the reading to the control board, which triggers the cooling system.

Evaporator Fan Motor

If the refrigerator section of the device is warm, but the freezer is working correctly, it may be a problem with the evaporator fan motor, which moves the cold air from the freezer into the fresh food section of the unit. Another indication that the evaporator fan motor isn't functioning properly may be that the refrigerator is running loudly.

Condenser Fan Motor

If the refrigerator isn't cooling, the problem may be the condenser fan motor. Test the continuity with a multimeter for some of these refrigerator mechanical parts, such as the thermistor, condenser fan motor, or evaporator fan motor, to see if they need replacing.

Water Inlet Valve

When the water dispenser or ice maker stops working, or if the appliance leaks water, the problem might be the water inlet valve. Before replacing the water inlet valve, test the water tube inside the door to make sure air passes through it and it's not simply clogged or frozen. Also, check the water pressure to the valve to ensure there's sufficient pressure to operate the water dispenser.

Ice Maker

If the ice maker stops functioning properly, and it's getting water into the unit, there may be a problem with the ice maker itself. The assembly is fully replaceable, and replacing the ice maker is a simple and common repair that only takes about 30 minutes.

These are some of the most common repairs for refrigerators. It's important to use appliance repair parts that are sourced directly from the manufacturer when making repairs on large items.
