Common Issues and Their Repairs
Loud and unpleasant noises are usually caused by a damaged evaporator fan or icemaker. If the sound is heard when the door is opened, it is likely caused by the condenser or the evaporator. There may even be a foreign object wedged in the blades, which are preventing them from rotating properly. This issue needs to be seen to quickly to prevent further damage.
The Fridge isn’t Cold
If your fridge isn’t cold then it is likely the condenser coils are on the fritz. This is usually caused by an accumulation of debris which impacts the cooling levels. If a good clean doesn’t fix the issue, then you’ll likely need to have the condenser fan motor or the evaporator fan replaced. There could also be a failure in the start relay or capacitor.
A leaky fridge can be caused by the water filter, the tank, or the inlet valve. The water tank assembly usually requires replacement. There can also be leaks in the filter due to poor installation that can be fixed by the correct installation. The defrost pan or water inlet valve can also be damaged and in need of replacement.
A fridge that is well-cared for can last up to 17 years. Once it becomes older than this however, it usually needs replacing for a newer model. We can help you select the right fridge for you, just give us a call.
