Noticing puddles around your fridge? Take a look at the bottom of the internal back wall. Debris can clog the drain, leading to water overflow.
The culprit might be the drip pan above the compressor. Keep it clean and in good shape or replace it if necessary to avoid those water leaks.
When we say “The refrigerator cycles too often,” it means that the refrigerator is turning on and off excessively.
The refrigerator’s cooling system operates in cycles, with the compressor turning on to cool the interior and then turning off when the desired temperature is reached.
If the refrigerator cycles too often, it could indicate an issue with the thermostat, temperature settings, or other components.
Call our technicians for help – we can diagnose and address the root cause, optimising your refrigerator’s performance and reducing energy consumption.
The damper in your refrigerator plays a crucial role in regulating the flow of cold air from the freezer to the fresh food area. When the damper is locked in the closed position, it restricts the air flow, causing an increase in the refrigerator’s temperature. Additionally, an overstuffed fresh food section can hinder the circulation of cool air, leading to a warmer refrigerator.
Our skilled technicians can inspect and resolve damper-related issues, ensuring it operates smoothly. We also provide guidance on organising the fresh food section to prevent air blockages, maintaining an optimal temperature for your refrigerator.
This problem frequently arises when a water pipe is blocked, twisted, or frozen, causing a disturbance in water dispensing from the fridge dispenser.
Moreover, if the temperature is too low, leading to the freezing of the water line (common as some lines pass through the freezer), our skilled technicians offer effective solutions, such as defrosting the line, to reinstate normal water dispensing functionality.
At times, the ice chute door or flap may accumulate a small mound of frost, snow, or ice, especially with continuous use of crushed ice – a generally normal occurrence that will eventually disappear.
You can easily address this by using a warm, moist sponge to remove the frost from the dispenser chute.
Overflowing ice in refrigerators often stems from low water pressure, a malfunctioning valve, or issues with the ice chute. This can lead to the ice maker running out of ice. It’s crucial to ensure water pressure is at least 20 psi.
Our skilled technicians will inspect the water pressure, identify valve malfunctions, and troubleshoot ice chute problems to ensure your refrigerator’s ice production operates smoothly.
A side-by-side refrigerator is characterised by its vertical split design, with the freezer on one side and the fresh food compartment on the other. The two compartments are typically of equal height and open parallel to each other. These often come with water and ice dispensers on the door, providing convenient access to filtered water and ice.
A French door style refrigerator has a unique double-door design for the fresh food compartment, with a bottom freezer drawer. French door refrigerators are known for their spacious and customisable interiors, often equipped with advanced features like multiple cooling zones, adjustable shelves, and temperature-controlled drawers.
Explore the key components Yeobuild adeptly repairs to guarantee optimal performance for your fridge. Our expertise extends to meticulous repairs of these components in wine chillers as well, ensuring peak performance for all your appliances.
The compressor is the heart of the refrigeration system. It pressurises and circulates refrigerant, playing a crucial role in maintaining the desired temperature inside the fridge. Issues with the compressor can lead to inadequate cooling, irregular temperature levels, or unusual noises. Our skilled technicians can diagnose and repair compressor-related issues to restore your appliance’s efficiency.
The condenser coil dissipates heat from the refrigerant, allowing it to transform from a gas to a liquid. This process is vital for maintaining the proper temperature inside the appliance. Over time, condenser coils may accumulate dust or debris, affecting their ability to release heat efficiently. Our repair services address these issues, ensuring optimal cooling performance.
The expansion tool regulates the flow of refrigerant, controlling its pressure and temperature as it enters the evaporator coil. Malfunctions in the expansion tool can lead to temperature inconsistencies or insufficient cooling. Our technicians are adept at diagnosing and fixing issues related to the expansion tool, ensuring precise regulation of the refrigeration cycle.
