Refrigerator Repair Service by Mr. Eds Appliance
Your refrigerator is probably your most used appliance. After all, your fridge is always on. Unfortunately, all appliances are prone to failure at some point. Mr. Ed’s offers affordable refrigerator repair in Albuquerque to tackle problems like frequent cycling, leaks, freezing, broken water dispensers, and high temperatures.
Common Refrigerator Repairs
While refrigerators are basic appliances, a number of problems can come up due to normal wear and tear and mechanical failure. Here are some of the most common refrigerator problems we can repair.
Fridge Is Freezing Food
Is your refrigerator too cold? The circulating fan responsible for blowing cold air from the freezer into the fridge may need to be fixed.
Fridge Isn’t Cooling
There are a few issues that may cause a refrigerator to stay warm. The problem may be the thermostat, the compressor motor, or the defrost timer. In some cases, the refrigerator door seal may be broken, in which case warm air is making its way into the refrigerator. If you hear clicking sounds from your compressor and your fridge is warm, the problem is the start capacitor or the compressor.
Is your refrigerator making odd or loud noises? While it may be a problem with the fan, issues with the compressor are usually responsible for excessive noise during operation. The compressor and the fan in your refrigerator have spinning motors that require lubrication. If either component starts to fail, you may hear a high-pitched sound as metal rubs against metal. You may also hear a clicking and buzzing from the compressor or a snapping or popping sound from the defrost timer.
There are a few reasons a refrigerator may leak. The lines to the dispenser may require replacement or the drain pan may be cracked. If you see a large puddle of water in the refrigerator, you may have a clogged drain tube.
Broken Water Dispenser
If your fridge is equipped with a water dispenser that isn’t functioning at all, the problem is likely the dispenser control board, which must be replaced. Other issues that can cause problems with the water dispenser include a frozen water supply tube, low water pressure, or a defective dispenser switch.
Broken Ice Maker
Has your ice maker stopped working? Make sure the wire next to the ice maker is in the downward position. If the ice maker is on but not working, the problem may be that the freezer is not cold enough or the freezer door seal is broken. The heater that comes on for a minute or two to break the ice cubes out of the mold may also be failing and staying on too long. If the ice maker mold is hot to the touch, it means the ice maker is probably jammed. It’s usually best to just replace the ice maker.
