Refrigerator Repair Tips
When it comes to your refrigerator there are a few things you can do to make sure it stays in peak form and properly preserves your food.
The Fridge is too Warm
If you reach into your fridge and it’s warm instead of cold, it could mean you’re dealing with one of two common problems. If the interior light doesn’t turn on, there’s a good chance that something has happened that has caused the fridge to be shut off. Make sure it’s still plugged in and that the power cord is in good shape. You should also check the circuit breaker and make sure the circuit running your fridge hasn’t been tripped.
If the fridge is still running but isn’t cooling, you need to contact Denver Appliance Repair and have them check the freon levels. The chances are pretty good that you’ve run out.
If you notice that your ice has cloudy flakes in it, even after you’ve changed the water filter, or that the various parts of your built-in ice dispenser have started to become discolored, the problem isn’t connected to your refrigerator but is, in fact, your water. It’s hard. The best way to handle the problem will be adding a water softener to your system.
Heavy Frost Build Up
When you notice a great deal of frost building up in your attached freezer, the first thing you need to do is defrost the unit. This should happen at least every six months, more often if you frequently open and close the door. If you’re still having trouble with your freezer and frost, you’ll want to check out the door seals, A leak can create all kinds of frost. If you feel cold air escaping, you need a new seal.
A Leaking Refrigerator
Having a built-in ice maker is a great feature, one that most people really enjoy, but it also increases the number of things that can go wrong with your fridge, including leaks. The first thing you need to do is to identify the exact location of the leak. This will help you determine if it’s an actual leak, or if it’s just condensation that has built up and started to drip. If the leak is coming from the inlet valve, you will need to tighten it up. If it’s coming from one of the pipes, the damaged one needs to be replaced. Making an effort to regularly clean the drain tube and keep it free of clogs will help prevent leaks from occurring.
