Share this news:

After the LG class-action lawsuit, more and more customers are focusing on resetting their refrigerator compressors to enhance cooling performance.

February 15th, 2022 — The 2020 settlement to the LG class-action brought a lot of attention towards the role of compressor maintenance in maintaining a refrigerator’s cooling efficiency. Even though most users used to ignore the compressor maintenance requirements, there has been a substantial influx of queries on how to reset the refrigerator compressor. Users have now recognized the fridge compressor as one of the most crucial components that directly relate to the unit’s overall performance.

While it is pretty simple to reset a refrigerator compressor, customers have to wait for over 24 hours to allow the temperatures to stabilize. To reset the fridge, users can directly unplug the fridge and shut down the main control panel safely. This step can vary depending on the brand and model of the unit, and customers are advised to refer to the owner’s manual for the complete procedure for shutting down a fridge safely.

Once the control panel has shut down, plug the fridge back into the power source and reset all temperature settings. At this point, users have to wait for over 24 hours for the temperatures to stabilize, and some experts from Appliance Technician have recommended a 26 hour wait period to the customers. There will be a significant boost in the refrigerator’s performance after this procedure, and it will also have a positive impact on the lifespan of the fridge.

Users struggling to manage this process can reach out to local professionals or online technicians like Appliance Technician LTD. To schedule a complete maintenance cycle with a certified expert. To learn more about this repair service provider, visit
