If your refrigerator has the motor underneath as most do, check for dust build up on the wire cooling grill behind the toe kick vent. The vent snaps off and you can see underneath with a flashlight if dust or pet hair has stuck under there. Remove the obstruction with a crevice tool on any vacuum cleaner. A clogged cooling grill will cause the refrigerator to run longer and cost more on your electric bill. It also can cause the compressor to burn out prematurely.
