Common Fridge Repair Issues

Your refrigerator can have a wide range of problems, and a fridge technician can help you get to the root of them. For example, you may have a problem with your fridge:
  • Being too noisy
  • Freezing your food
  • Running constantly
  • Not making ice
  • Having broken lights
  • Featuring an error code
  • Freezer not working
Some other issues include the following:

Fridge Too Warm

There are many reasons why your fridge may not be getting cold enough. Make sure you plug it into a working power source and check the thermostat settings. If those are fine, check to see if your door is closing properly. If not, it may be letting all of the cold air out.

Some more complex problems would be a bad fan, issues with your condenser coils, and issues with your compressor. For these issues, contact an Ideal Fix technician for fridge repair.

Fridge Leaking Water

Whether your fridge leak is resulting in water inside or outside of your fridge, we can take care of it. Three common reasons for leaks include:

Common Fridge Related Questions We Hear

A fridge leak is one of the most common problems homeowners face. Many instances involve water not reaching the drain because of incorrect leveling or a defrost drain clog. Both of these appliance repairs are easily doable with proper leveling and unclogging.

Contact Ideal Fix for a professional appliance repair service if you notice water pooling around your refrigerator. There is likely a broken or malfunctioning valve or hose that’s letting water spill onto the floor. The excess water can damage your home and other major household appliances if left untreated.

It is not uncommon for your fridge or freezer to feel warm to the touch. The outer surface acts as a condenser to remove heat from the interior. The sides only feel cold when the compressor is malfunctioning.

The walls can be up to  60°F hotter than the surrounding environment. You should consider appliance repairs if you notice sweating or subpar performance. An Ideal Fix fridge technician can diagnose any potential problems and implement fridge and freezer repair solutions.

There are several potential reasons for why your fridge isn’t keeping the milk cold and the ice cream frozen. Try troubleshooting to find the problem source. You can always contact a professional fridge technician if the issue is more complicated than your first thought.

Make sure the fridge is plugged in and has power. The interior light should turn on when you open the door. Check that the thermostat is on the correct temperature, and there are no vent obstructions.

It’s risky to put a self-defrosting refrigerator in uninsulated areas, including garages. The oil inside the fridge that helps it to defrost and cool can thicken and prevent normal operation if the temperature drops below 10 C (50 F). Ideal Fix can’t recommend fridge installations for garage areas.

Refrigerators run to maintain a proper internal temperature. If the refrigerator seems to be running more often than normal, it usually has an issue that warrants an inspection. Inadequate airflow around the condenser coils can also be the cause of this problem, which is commonly due to the fridge being too close to the wall.

A refrigerator’s lifespan is closely tied to its manufacturing quality, how often it’s maintained, and where it’s placed in the house or building. A fridge can typically last between 14 and 17 years, although it’s not uncommon to have a refrigerator last more than 20 years if carefully looked after.

There are a few reasons why a fridge is noisy. One of the more mundane problems is a lack of balance. Some fridges have legs or stands, and if one of them is too high or low, the fridge can be noisy due to vibrations. Another problem that might be causing the noise is the condenser fan behind the fridge. If you can, unplug the fridge and look behind it to see if something is blocking the fan.

The most common reason a fridge might ice over is due to improper door seals. If the latches or the rubber sealing don’t provide an airtight seal, the outside air can enter the fridge and cause it to run for longer to compensate. This can cause the refrigerator to ice over. Hinges and seals need to be repaired to increase energy efficiency and prevent icing.

The first thing to check after a power outage are the fuses and the outlets. Make sure the refrigerator is turned on via the control power. If it is, check the fuse in the service box or the outlet supplying the power. Chances are, one of these two have blown and will need to be repaired. If the problem is external, switching to a different outlet should help.

Signs of smoke or burning could have serious consequences and should be inspected immediately. Turn off the fridge and contact Ideal Fix for refrigerator repairs if you detect a burning smell.

We charge $75 for a service call, which is waived in case of repairs. Repair costs depend on the parts involved and the workhours needed to fix the issue.

If your appliance is still under warranty, they will usually repair or replace it with minimal to no cost. However, some issues don’t fall under warranty. Contact the appliance’s manufacturer for more information.

Most new appliances have a unique smell due to residues from the manufacturing process. It should go away on its own relatively shortly with regular use.

Appliances that come into contact or use water to operate can develop mould or mildew if they are not vented or emptied properly. Regular maintenance should keep humidity low enough to deter mould growth. Ideal Fix can troubleshoot the exact cause of the smell, fix it, and provide guidelines to prevent it from reoccurring.

Consider how much a repair is going to cost versus buying a brand-new appliance. When purchasing an appliance, you will get a warranty that protects from breaks or mishaps for a certain period, which can save money on repair costs. Additionally, new appliances generally use less electricity or water to run and are more environmentally friendly.
