fridge repairs

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.

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.
