The refrigerator is a common item in today's household. Thousands homes in fact have not only a refrigerator with its built-in freezer compartment but also a separate stand-alone freezer. Some also have smaller refrigerators for the wet bar or out in the motor home. Basic operation, maintenance, troubleshooting, servicing, and repair is the same for all of them
How refrigerator works
If you look at the back or bottom of an older refrigerator, you'll see a long thin tube that loops back and forth. This tube is connected to a pump, which is powered by an electric motor.
Inside the tube is Freon, a type of gas. Freon is the brand name of the gas. This gas, chemically is called Chloro-Flouro-Carbon or CFC. This gas was found to hurt the environment if it leaks from refrigerators. So now, other chemicals are used in a slightly different process (see next section below).
CFC starts out as a liquid. The pump pushes the CFC through a lot of coils in the freezer area. There the chemical turns to a vapor. When it does, it soaks up some of the heat that may be in the freezer compartment. As it does this, the coils get colder and the freezer begins to get colder.
In the regular part of your refrigerator, there are fewer coils and a larger space. So, less heat is soaked up by the coils and the CFC vapor.
The pump then sucks the CFC as a vapor and forces it through thinner pipes which are on the outside of the refrigerator. By compressing it, the CFC turns back into a liquid and heat is given off and is absorbed by the air around it. That's why it might be a little warmer behind or under your refrigerator.
Once the CFC passes through the outside coils, the liquid is ready to go back through the freezer and refrigerator over and over.
Modern refrigerators don't use CFC because CFCs are harmful to the atmosphere if released. Instead they use another type of gas called HFC-134a, also called tetrafluoroethane. HFC turns into a liquid when it is cooled to -15.9 degrees Fahrenheit (-26.6 degrees Celsius).
A motor and compressor squeezes the HFC. When it is compressed, a gas heats up as it is pressurized. When you pass the compressed gas through the coils on the back or bottom of a modern refrigerator, the warmer gas can lose its heat to the air in the room.
Remember the law of thermodynamics.
As it cools, the HFC can change into a liquid because it is under a high pressure.
The liquid flows through what's called an expansion valve, a tiny small hole that the liquid has to squeeze through. Between the valve and the compressor, there is a low-pressure area because the compressor is pulling the ammonia gas out of that side.
When the liquid HFC hits a low pressure area it boils and changes into a gas. This is called vaporizing.
The coils then go through the freezer and regular part of the refrigerator where the colder liquid in the coil pulls the heat out of the compartments. This makes the inside of the freezer and entire refrigerator cold.
The compressor sucks up the cold gas, and the gas goes back through the same process over and over.
How to Install a Refrigerator
Put the refrigerator on strips of carpet, pile-side down, and slide it into place. Be sure to plug it in when you can reach the outlet with the cord.
Remove the carpet.
Lay a level across the top of the refrigerator to make sure it is level. If it isn't, remove the front grille at the base of the fridge, tilt the refrigerator back and place a wooden block under the front edge. Find the leveling legs on the front corners, and screw them up or down to level the unit.
Check the level again, and repeat this process until the fridge is level. (The door should shut by itself when opened to a 45-degree angle. If it doesn't, screw the leveling legs down enough so that it does.)
Consult your owner's manual on how to hook up the icemaker, if applicable.
Run the refrigerator for at least 4 hours before putting perishable food into it
REFRIGERATOR REPAIR, Maintenance and CLEANING TIPS
If your refrigerator is not running or is not cold enough...
Turn the thermostat up to the next highest setting. If it comes on, let it run for 24 hours and check temperature to confirm it is working properly.
Clear/remove anything blocking the air flow around the outside of the refrigerator (on top, underneath, behind, beside, in front of, etc.). Allow 3" of clearance all the way around.
If there are condensor coils on the rear of the box, make sure the box is several inches from the wall and that nothing is on top at the rear, blocking the heat from coming off the coils.
If the condenser coils are underneath the refrigerator, clean the coils at least twice a year. (Our company provide Condenser coils CLEANING )
