Refrigerator Repair FAQs

Why does the refrigerator have ice buildup on the inside?

If you notice ice forming on the interior of the fridge, it's a sign that something isn't right. The usual moisture is beginning to freeze, posing a threat to the unit's temperature control. It may potentially result in the appliance's failure. Here are a few reasons why this may be occurring: 

  • Defrost failure.
  • Bad door seals.
  • Warm air comes in too often.
  • Not closing the door all the way.
  • Drainage issues with bottom drawer freezer.

 

Why aren’t my clothes drying?

It may sound silly, but check to see that your dryer is turned on and receiving power. Check the circuit breaker if the dryer is plugged in but does not appear to be working. Reset the dryer's circuit if it has been tripped. Then, check the dryer vent. When was the last time it was cleaned? The most common cause of house fires is a dirty or clogged dryer vent. This task needs to be done once a year to ensure the safety of your home. 

Moisture on the inside of the drum? After the drying cycle is completed, condensation may be seen in the dryer drum. Improper ventilation can cause moisture and lint to accumulate in the dryer's exhaust system duct and seep back into the dryer after it shuts off, resulting in condensation.

Why does a washing machine leak from the bottom?

Leaking will occur for many reasons, but most commonly if a gasket has worn areas. You can usually remedy the problem by removing the front cover of the washer and tightening the bolts to improve the gasket's fit. Your appliance will also leak water if the hoses are broken or the fittings do not fit properly. Internal hoses might potentially be the source of the problem. They might have a leak or a broken connection, causing them to leak during water cycles. Door seal problems fall under the category of leaks as well, and they're very simple to fix. Be sure to inspect the door seals on a regular basis to ensure they are free from dirt or excessive detergent which would prevent them from closing sufficiently.

Signs You Need Refrigerator Service

Your refrigerator may still be keeping food cold, but that doesn't mean it's running efficiently. Some common problems to look for include:

  • Reduced Cooling
  • Broken Dispensers - If your dispenser isn’t providing ice, it could be for a number of reasons, including water pressure problems, issues with the temperature of the machine, or water valve malfunctions.
  • Broken Lights
  • Unusual Noises
  • Loose Doors
  • Frost Build-Up
  • Ice Quality  - If your ice is clumped together or cloudy and white, your refrigerator may be having problems. 
  • Leaking Fluids - A leak from your fridge could mean a loose connection from the dispenser, a bad water valve, a filter issue or a cracked water line among other things.

Refrigerator Leaking?

If your refrigerator is leaking from the bottom, there could be a problem with the inlet valves for your ice maker or dispenser. It could also be a supply line or internal supply line, internal kidney leaking and or condensate tray cracked so it leaks after defrost.  Internal leaks can be caused by inlet valves not closing all the way, broken ice maker molds, bad or worn gaskets seals on the door, a defrost malfunction from over icing, or the evaporator run off drain being compromised in some manner.

Regular semi annual performance maintenance can help prevent leaks from happening in the first place. They can also improve the unit’s mechanical efficiencies, sanitation from mold and extend the life of the refrigerator/ freezer.

Did You Know…?

The perfect refrigerator temperature should be between 35-38 degrees Fahrenheit. Your food is more susceptible to grow harmful bacteria and spoil when above 40 degrees which is considered an 'unsafe zone.' Your target temperature range for your freezer should be 0o or below is safe to eat indefinitely (however, quality and taste may be compromised after a while). Many foods will freeze at about 32o Fahrenheit, they should be stored at 0o Fahrenheit to slow down deterioration, colder is better.
