Why is broken?
There is an array of reasons that could be linked to a malfunctioning refrigerator. There's also numerous causes in any situation. Clogged condenser coils, faulty compressor or relay, defective defrost timer or defrost heater, or even a malfunctioning temperature control could all be causes for concern.
Correcting the existing issues can completed through repair or replacement. This may seem simple; however, it is not. Before repairs can commence, thorough troubleshooting and assessment needs to be done to define the problem.
This is a major reason why we do not recommend DIY jobs. They're misleading in terms of cost-efficiency. You'll be spending major money on diagnosing the concern as well as equipment, which is tailored for educated experts. Another caution - if you're using 'trial and error,' you'll more than likely cause greater issues. These damages are then outside of warranty, exasperating costs.
This is why you're better off contacting LH Appliance Repair of Bellevue.
Common problems, troubleshooting, and repair
Unpleasant noises from your refrigerator, such as jarring could be down to a few main offenders; the ice maker or faulty evaporator fan. If the sound is audible upon opening the door, it is most likely to be the evaporator or a condenser malfunction. It is also possible an unknown object has made its way into the blades, restricting rotation. In this case, evaporator fan replacement is the best option, without, greater damage could occur.
Not cool enough
For warmer than usual refrigerators, condenser coils are the main root of evil. Debris continually forms, which requires a comprehensive clean to lower temperature. If issues persist, don't hesitate to contact us! It will most likely mean your evaporator or condenser fan needs replacement.
The start relay or capacitor - which power the condenser—might have failed as well, which would need to be replaced.
The mechanism that powers the condenser - the capacitor or start relay - could have failed, which means replacement is needed.
If there's a water leak on the floor, this could be due to the water tank, inlet valve, or filter. If the water tank is damaged, the assembly will not be able to be replace and repair is the only option. Incorrect filter installation could also lead to water leakage. This is an easy fix, through reinstallation.
Should I consider a replacement?
Refrigerators are durable appliances, lasting around 17 years with correct maintenance. If exceeding this age, it would be best to get in touch with the team at LH Appliance Repair, who can replace it with a newer model!
