I feel that my refrigerator is under-performing. I have the thermostat set to the coldest position, waited 24 hours, and with a thermometer it reads 4c on the lowest shelf, and between 8c and 9c at the top shelf.
However, when I checked another fridge, that measured around 4c at the bottom, and 5c at the top.
Do some fridges show bigger temperature differences top to bottom than others, or dies it sound like I have a problem?
So far I have:
- Checked that the light is not staying on.
- Checked that the door seal does not have any splits.
- Checked the condenser coils at the back of the unit - they are very clean.
- Switched the unit off for a few minutes and then back on in case that resets anything.
The integrated freezer (which is underneath the refrigerator) seems to be working perfectly.
Do I need to call someone out, or is there anything else I could check myself?
