How to Tell Your Fridge Needs Service

Your refrigerator is the hub of your kitchen. It’s where everyone hovers at meal times, and it contains all the things that fuel your family. When it’s not working properly, it can be extremely frustrating and inconvenient. Throwing out food that has spoiled due to a broken refrigerator is a huge waste of money, so it’s best to call a repair company at the first signs of malfunction. Here are some signs that will help you know if you need a refrigerator repair.

Food Not Cold Enough

If you notice your beverages aren’t very cold when you open them, or fruit is spoiling faster than usual, your refrigerator may not be cooling efficiently anymore. Turning up the cooling setting dial might help temporarily, but you will end up using more energy and put more stress on an already weak appliance. It’s best to call a repair company at the first sign of a cooling problem.

Frost Buildup

If you notice ice or frost build up in your refrigerator, or the freezer portion of your refrigerator, this indicates a problem with the evaporator coils. Make sure you have it checked by a professional repair technician as soon as possible.

Loud Noises

If your fridge is making loud whirring or buzzing noises, or just sounds like it is working harder than usual, this is a sign of a problem. There could be a number of different things causing your refrigerator to be making unusual noises, so you should call Express Appliance Service right away to have them help diagnose the issue.

Addressing a problem with your refrigerator right away instead of putting it off can save you a lot of money in the long run. Most minor problems are easy and inexpensive to fix but putting off a refrigerator repair can lead to more costly issues down the road. Call Express Appliance Service at the first signs of any issues with your refrigerator.
