    The Most Common Freezer Problems

    Modern freezers are basically well-insulated cabinets whose doors seal tightly. Tubes circulate a special liquid (known as a “refrigerant”) up and down the back of your refrigerator. This liquid is special because it changes temperatures under different pressures particularly well. As the liquid circulates through the tubes, the coils where heat is transferred, and the condenser that pumps the liquid, it’s put under different pressures. Because heat always moves from hotter to cooler areas, we are able to move heat from the freezer cabinet through the refrigerant and release it outside of the refrigerator. This is accomplished simply by changing the amount of pressure a refrigerant is under at different stages in its cycle with a few fans to speed up the process.
