If your refrigerator isn’t cooling properly, you could try checking the condenser coils. There are condenser coils on the rear of the box. Make sure that the box is several inches from the wall and that nothing is blocking the heat from coming off the coils.
If you’re having problems with your ice maker, the water inlet valve may be filled with ice.
Thaw the water tube with a hair dryer to remove the blockage. Be careful to not melt any plastic parts with the blow dryer.
A refrigerator "sealed system" is also referred to as the cooling system.
All refrigerators, from the high tech ones to a small mini-fridge to a wine cooler basically use the same type of setup to keep cold things cold. They all have a refrigerator sealed system made up of a compressor, condenser, evaporator, capillary tube, and a suction line. When everything works properly, the liquid refrigerant flows through the right parts of the system at the correct rate and pressure. Your refrigerator absorbs heat from warm food and does its job. It also removes moisture. As long as the refrigerator sealed system stays sealed and running properly, you have cold food.
When a refrigerator needs sealed system repairs, often it’s because there’s a leak or malfunction within the system that makes it harder for the refrigerator to do its job. Watch for these signs your refrigerator is leaking refrigerant or has another problem with one of the components that make up your system.
