  • Check the thermostat to make sure it is not set too cold. If your indoor temperature changes a lot during the year, you might need to change the thermostat to match it.
  • Check for any air vents in the fridge and make sure they're not blocked.
  • Make sure there's at least a 10cm gap around all the side and back of the fridge to let warm air escape.
  • Get rid of any frost build-up in the fridge.
  • Clean the condenser coils at the back of the fridge with a vacuum cleaner to get rid of any dirt or dust. You can clean any stubborn dirt away with warm soapy water – but be careful not to scrape the coils.
  • Check that the door is closing properly. Make sure nothing is in the way it or pushing it open and that the seal around the door is tight.
