Some Common fridge and freeze problems we fix are:

  • Temperature issues: If your fridge or freezer is not maintaining the correct temperature, it could be due to a faulty thermostat, temperature control board, or compressor.
  • Frost buildup: If you notice excessive frost or ice buildup in the freezer, it might indicate a problem with the defrost system, such as a faulty defrost timer, defrost heater, or defrost thermostat.
  • Leaking water: Water pooling inside or around the fridge can be caused by a clogged defrost drain, a cracked water inlet valve, or a malfunctioning water dispenser system.
  • Strange noises: Unusual noises like buzzing, rattling, or clicking might indicate problems with the compressor, condenser fan, or evaporator fan motor.
  • Door seal issues: A worn-out or damaged door seal (gasket) can lead to air leaks, causing temperature fluctuations and energy wastage.
  • Compressor problems: The compressor is a vital component that can fail due to electrical issues, motor faults, or refrigerant leaks.
  • Refrigerant leaks: If your fridge or freezer isn't cooling properly, it could be due to a refrigerant leak, which requires professional repair as handling refrigerants can be hazardous.
  • No power: If the unit is completely unresponsive, it could be due to a faulty power cord, plug, or an issue with the electrical supply.
  • Icemaker malfunctions: Icemakers might experience issues like jammed ejectors, faulty water inlet valves, or clogged filters.
  • Condenser coil problems: Dirty or clogged condenser coils can reduce cooling efficiency and may require cleaning.

Dishank was very informative and polite. He resolved the problem very quickly. The temp was too high and therefore the food at the rear of the fridge was always frozen. Since adjusting the temperature and looking at the parts that were contributing to the problem . All seemed to be ok and working. Would recommend this company to anyone wanting repairs. Thanking you

FAQS on Fridge Repairs & Service

It depends on the condition of your fridge and the extent of repairs needed. If the problems are minor, then repairing is often a cost-effective option. However, replacing your refrigerator may be a more cost-effective solution if you have serious problems or need to repair important components such as the compressor or condenser. Customers can take financial advice from our team.

The most common causes for a fridge not cooling are a worn-out compressor, a dirty condenser, or a faulty thermostat. Other potential issues include broken seals causing warm air to enter the fridge, clogged or blocked air vents, malfunctioning evaporator fan motor, and an inefficient condenser coil. To diagnose these problems, call our expert team.

Common fridge problems get identified by many signs, such as an increase in temperature inside the fridge, frost build-up on the interior surfaces, and strange noises from the appliance. Other signs include water dripping from the interior or exterior of the refrigerator, the condenser not working properly, and ice buildup in the freezer compartment. If you notice any of these signs, contact our service technician.

  1. Use a mild detergent mixed with water, and regularly clean the fridge interior to prevent the buildup of spills, stains, and food residues.
  2. If you have a manual defrost refrigerator, defrost it periodically to prevent ice buildup. If the ice reaches around 1/4 inch (6 mm) in thickness, unplug the fridge and let the ice melt naturally.
  3. Keep the air vents inside the fridge and freezer unobstructed. A blocked outlet can disrupt the airflow and affect the fridge’s cooling efficiency.
  4. Every few months, unplug the refrigerator and gently clean the condenser coils using a brush or vacuum cleaner.
  5. For efficient working of the fridge, place it away from direct sunlight and heat sources like ovens and radiators.
  6. Ensure the fridge door closes tightly and forms a proper seal. A misaligned door can lead to energy wastage and temperature fluctuations.

We accept various modes of payment including cash, credit/debit cards, and electronic bank transfers for your convenience.

At DP Electric, we aim to provide transparent and affordable pricing for our customers. Our refrigerator repair & service comes with a flat call-out fee of $180, which includes both repairs and service. This means you won’t be surprised by any hidden charges, and you can rest assured that the total cost is covered by this upfront fee.

Our technicians aim to arrive at your location within 24 to 48 hours of booking an appointment. We are committed to offering same-day service whenever possible, ensuring that your kitchen appliances are up and running as quickly as possible.

The repair time depends on the nature of the problem and the availability of parts. Typically, our technicians strive to complete repairs promptly and efficiently. Upon inspection, we’ll provide you with an estimated timeline for the repair process.

Unplugging a fridge may reset some of its internal systems, but it may not always resolve underlying issues causing malfunction. For comprehensive troubleshooting, it’s advisable to consult with our professional technicians.

The first thing to check is the power supply and thermostat settings. Ensure that the fridge is receiving power and that the thermostat is set to the appropriate temperature. If these are in order and the fridge still doesn’t cool, there may be other issues such as a faulty compressor or refrigerant leak.

If the freezer is working but the fridge section isn’t cooling, it could indicate problems with the evaporator fan, defrost timer, or airflow blockages between the freezer and fridge compartments. Our technicians can diagnose and resolve these issues efficiently.

Signs of a faulty compressor include loud or unusual noises, excessive heat around the compressor unit, inability to maintain consistent temperatures, and visible leaks or oil stains around the compressor area.

Yes, a fridge leaking refrigerant can be repaired by our trained technicians. However, it’s essential to address refrigerant leaks promptly as they can affect the cooling efficiency and potentially pose safety hazards.

In some cases, a faulty thermostat can be repaired or recalibrated by our technicians. However, if the thermostat is extensively damaged or malfunctioning, it may need to be replaced to restore proper functionality to your fridge.
