REFRIGERATOR PROBLEMS

Loud/Constant Noises

This common problem can be caused by the condenser fan motor (coming from the refrigerator) or the evaporator fan motor (coming from the freezer). If it is possible, we ask that our customers try to determine if the noise is coming from the freezer or refrigerator to make sure that we have everything that we need to fix it. This is one of the most common problems people experience with their refrigerator units.

Water Leaks

There are one or two different causes for this. The first is that the water inlet valve is broken, and the other is that there is an issue with the door closure or latch. No matter what the problem is, we are going to have the necessary parts and tools in the service van.

Won’t Start

Before doing anything else, make sure that the fridge is plugged in and the circuit breaker is properly working. Once the caller is sure that it is not one of these obvious problems, the phone call to us can happen. We know that there are 2 other reasons why this happens, a temperature control malfunction or a broken compressor overload relay.

Ice Maker Won’t Make Ice

We can definitely address that broken ice maker. There are a few reasons why they can malfunction, and we thoroughly understand them. These causes can be that the water fill tubes are broken, the temperature control in the freezer is broken, or the water inlet valve is broken. We can handle all of your ice maker problems.

Fridge Too Cold/Too Warm

Though it is a serious problem, it is very common for a refrigerator to develop temperature issues. We can deal with this problem on all the major brands and models on the market. A refrigerator that is too warm is usually due to a bad air inlet damper. If it is too cold, a bad thermistor or temperature control is probably the culprit. The same goes for a freezer that is too cold.

Broken Water Dispenser

This is one of the rarer of the problems that we come across, but that doesn’t limit our ability to take care of it. We come prepared with the various tools and parts we need to fix this issue on almost all refrigerator brands. We are equipped to handle even uncommon issues like this. The most likely cause of this issue is that the water inlet valve or the dispenser actuators are not functioning properly.

Door Latch/Bulb Problems

A damaged or faulty refrigerator door can result in a loss of temperature and, thus, a loss of the food that is in the refrigerator. Groceries are not cheap, and this can result in quite a lot of money being wasted. It can also cause leaks and condensation problems. We can deal with the gaskets, seals, and hinges that may need to be replaced and while we are there we can easily replace blown out bulbs.
