If your refrigerator isn't as cold inside as it used to be, there's no need to immediately order a brand-new one. First, check to make sure the thermostat hasn't been accidentally turned up; often, they get bumped and need a simple readjustment. Then clean the condenser coils at the bottom of the fridge, which can get clogged with dirt, dust and other debris. Finally, is your fridge overpacked? If the back is full of stacked food, you might have a blocked vent. Just spread the items around until the fridge is cool again.
