Background and Identification
A refrigerator (colloquially fridge) is a common household appliance that consists of a thermally insulated compartment and a heat pump (mechanical, electronic, or chemical) that transfers heat from the inside of the fridge to its external environment so that the inside of the fridge is cooled to a temperature below the ambient temperature of the room.
Refrigeration is an essential food storage technique in developed countries. Lower temperatures in a confined volume lowers the reproduction rate of bacteria, so the refrigerator reduces the rate of spoilage.

If your fridge has an ice maker that stopped making ice, try the fixes on the Frigidaire Ice Maker Not Working page. Many of those solutions work for other brands as well.
Many other common refrigerator problems can be prevented with simple maintenance, defrosting, cleaning, and seal-replacement to ensure the fridge stays cool and energy efficient.
