Refrigerator Having Problems?

Check These Things before Calling For Appliance Repair

The refrigerator is one of the most hardworking appliances in your home. It sits there year after year, keeping your food chilled and frozen without making much noise or fuss. However, like other appliances, fridges will eventually start having problems.

Try these tips before calling for appliance repair in Tempe:

  1. Is the fridge getting electricity? If the light inside is on, then it’s getting electricity. If not, go check the breaker box to make sure the circuit hasn’t tripped. Reset the breaker if necessary.
  2. Is the fridge running, but not cooling properly? If the fridge is not cooling properly, check the thermostat controls. Someone might have turned them to a lower setting. Turn them up to the highest point and leave it for a couple of hours. If the fridge is still not cooling properly, call for an appliance service tech to come out. If it is working, set the controls back to normal.
  3. Is the ice maker not working? Most ice makers have an on/off switch of some sort. Make sure it was not turned off by accident. If it is on, check the water flow. There is a water supply going into the back of the fridge. Make sure the water is turned on and flowing.
  4. Are you getting water puddles at the base of the fridge? This could happen for a couple of reasons. If you have an ice maker, the water supply may be leaking. Check the connection to see if it needs tightening. Check the pipe to see if it is leaking. If the problem is not the water supply, you may have a clogged drain inside the unit. Clear out the drain. If that doesn’t work, call in a reputable Tempe repair service.

There are some problems that you shouldn’t try to tackle yourself. For example, if the fridge starts making loud noises for no reason, you may have a compressor going out. If the you find refrigerant leaking, you need someone certified to fix and replace it.

If your fridge, washing machine, dryer, or cooktop are having problems, you need a Tempe appliance repair service to help. Give us a call today.
