How do I fix air blowing out the grill of the front of the refrigerator?


Answer by  mako (289)

Air coming out the front grill of a refrigerator is a normal function and should not be altered. A fan is installed outside the refrigerator to help cool the condenser coils. If the air path is tampered with, the fridge may not cool well, and the compressor will overheat.

If you can't close the grill, then it might have to be replaced. Turn off your refrigerator and call a service man to fix the problem.

It is common for the air to blow out of the front grill of the refrigerator. Your refrigerator is doing what is was made to do and that keep your food cold. You should not do anything that will block or turn off the air blowing as this a neccessary opertion for the refrigerator.

This is an easy fix according to my handyman, you just need to use the small attachment to your vacuum and just suction out all the dust, which the reason it gets blocked, a five minute fix.

If the air is warm or hot this is probably normal behavior. In order for the refrigerator to cool the food inside it must transfer the heat to the outside.

There is a ruptured exhaust pipe in the fan at the base of the refrigerator. The exhaust fan can easily be reached from the back of the fridge.

You do not want to fix the air blowing from the front of refridgerator its a vent used to blow of the hot air allowing the fridge to remain at a cooler temperature..

Well that sounds normal to me. It should be air pushed through the condenser to keep the refrigerator cool. It it wasn't blowing then there would be no cooling to the refrigerant.
