Your fridge freezer is the heart of your home. It’s there for you all the time. When you come home in the evening and you’ve had a rough day, it doesn’t cast judgement when you take out a tub of ice cream and only one spoon. It doesn’t tell anyone about the extra slice of cake you ate. It even keeps your midnight meet-ups a secret. It’s got your back. So, you should return the favour.
In this guide, we’re going to look at the some of the most common tell-tale signs that your fridge freezer needs some TLC or even retirement. These are the fridge freezer maintenance questions that we get the most and we’ve done our best to answer them as clearly as we can. Having a fridge freezer that’s not working at 100% isn’t just bad news for your food, but it’s not good for your energy bills either. Read on to find out what the signs that you need a new fridge freezer are…
Why is My Fridge Freezer Not Cold?
If your fridge freezer doesn’t seem to be doing what it was put on this green earth to do, then you need to do some investigating. It could be something really simple, it could be something more serious at work.
Why Does My Fridge Freezer Stink?
If you’re receiving some less than desirable smells from your fridge freezer, there’s a number of potential culprits. The inside of your fridge freezer is more than likely to have a lot of plastic. Plastic absorbs odours. You can clean and scrub the inside of your fridge freezer as much as you can but sometimes that’s not enough. When it comes to fridge smells, the first thing to do is to identify any rotten food and check the drip tray for the culprit, if they can’t be found, try the following.

Why is My Fridge Freezer Leaking Water?
A fridge freezer leaking water is one of the most common issues you will face. Particularly if it is a fridge freezer with a water and ice dispenser. Here are the most common causes and solutions.
Why is My Fridge Freezer Noisy?
Your fridge freezer shouldn’t be noisy. As it’s always on, it normally is always making a noise, but this should be very low-level and unnoticeable. If you’re experiencing a loud noise coming from your unit, then this is normally very easily diagnosed.
Do You Need a New Fridge Freezer?
If your fridge freezer isn’t cold, is leaking water, creating smells or a lot of noise, then you may be able to remedy the situation. If, however, your fridge freezer is over ten years old and these issues are occurring, it’s time to start thinking about replacing the entire unit.
If you have tried the solutions we’ve provided above and you’re still having no luck with your fridge freezer and it’s over ten years old, the cost of replacing and repairing can start to travel into a range where it makes more sense to simply invest in a new fridge freezer.
Where components of the fridge freezer start to not work at full capacity, the unit’s overall efficiency starts to drop and the cost of running the unit will increase. Better to get a brand-new powerful, reliable and efficient model with new modern, contemporary features and capacities than continue to spend money on a dying fridge freezer.
