Warm foodIf you leave your bowl of porridge in the refrigerator overnight and it’s warm in the morning—you shouldn’t eat it! Here’s what might have gone down:
- Either something has gone wrong with the thermostat, or you have mistakenly set it to a warmer temperature. Check the dial and set it back to a cooler temperature setting. After you’ve done so, wait for an hour to see warm spots still exist.
- The vents in your refrigerator shouldn’t be blocked. If you have crammed too many food blocks in the fridge, it’ll affect the airflow inside. Remove a few to ensure proper ventilation.
- You should check if the seal around the food is closing properly. If it doesn’t close or is damaged, warm air can enter the fridge. You can try cleaning the seal with soap and water. If the issue doesn’t get fixed, get a professional to take a look at it.
- The overall performance of your refrigerator can go down if the coils are covered in debris and dust. Since the coils are present at the back of the refrigerator, we don’t recommend taking a look on your own. Hire an expert instead.
