Key things to keep an eye on:
A Refrigerator not only forms the focal point of your kitchen but also helps in storing perishables and other foods. The temperatures in your fridge and freezer should always be kept between 37 and 41 degrees Fahrenheit to slow down the reproduction of bacteria. If you suspect that there is something wrong in your refrigerator, use a thermometer to find out the temperatures inside. If the temperature falls or rises above the set limit, know itís needs some repairs.
Locate the compressor of your Refrigerator at the back bottom and listen carefully to the sound emanating from the humming motor. If the motor is running, and the fridge registers above normal temperatures and at the same time adjusting the thermostat doesnít correct the problem, several parts might need to be checked for repairs. The thermostat, compressor, defrost timer or the relay timer might have malfunctioned.
You should have discovered some delicate coils underneath your refrigerator. When dirty, these coils can cause problems. The refrigeratorís fan also needs thorough cleaning to keep it in good condition. You can easily remove the kickplate to access the coils and the fan. Then, unplug the fridge, vacuum the fan, compressor as well as the coil. If these firsthand solutions donít work, the problem could be bigger. Our Oak Lawn refrigerator repair professional can help you diagnose the problem.
Temperature fluctuations in your fridge can also be caused by frost buildup on the evaporator coils. Look for ice/frost buildup on the floor, walls or ceiling of the freezer. Frost-free refrigerators have inbuilt self-defrosting system that operates about 4 times in 24 hours. You need to repair the malfunctioned self-defrosting system for your freezer to operate efficiently.
After a series troubleshooting and diagnosis, contact one of our Oak Lawn fridge repair service providers for help. You can request an estimate to help you budget for the repair work. If the cost of repairing your refrigerator is far much less than the cost of buying a new one, consider the repair to save you money. Call us at (773) 270-8177.
