Signs That Your Refrigerator Needs Repair

Posted on Mar 15th, 2018

Refrigerators are an indispensable household appliance that can be seen in all homes. Where else would you store yesterday’s leftover food to heat and eat it again the next day?  A good fridge can last many years, which is why technicians such as those at EK Appliance services can help you with minor damages that may have befallen your refrigerator rather than replacing it altogether.

Here are some of the signs that refrigerators may give, before they wear out completely:

Excessive heat from the motor:

Your refrigerator is a bit warm at the back and that is not uncommon. However, if the motor’s running really hot, chances are that the coil has turned faulty. Since the coils are the back are insulated, you shouldn’t have felt such high temperatures.  Call professional refrigerator repair technicians to have a look at it. We tell you if you just need to repair the coils or if there’s a need to replace the fridge.

Food deterioration:

Your fridge takes longer time to cool the eatables inside it. . You now need to put beer bottles inside your refrigerator for an unusually large amount of time to get it chilled. It is also unable to maintain low temperatures for longer periods of time. All of this leads to stale food and spoilt drinks.

High electricity bills:

Your electricity bill can soar unusually high when you use inefficient appliances. If your refrigerator is impaired, it may have to work harder than before to maintain lower temperatures. As a result, your electricity bill increases even though power utilisation is the same. Many of today’s refrigerators come with Energy Adviser, an equipment that tracks your power usage. Make sure that you buy only energy efficient fridges such that qualify for the Energy Star rating. Not only is a more energy efficient refrigerator better for your wallet, it’s better for the environment as well.

Over freezing

A freezer is obviously employed to keep the food in a frozen state. But to chisel ice off from the food you have kept in it is quite unusual and chances are that something is wrong with your freezer. This is a sign that your freezer needs defrosting. Once you have completed the necessary steps of defrosting, plug the fridge back in.  If the problem still continues, you may have to buy a new refrigerator.

Constant humming of the motor

All fridges emit soft humming sound.  You can even hear particularly loud noises at times when the compressor and motor kicks in to bring temperature down to the set level. However if this sound does not decrease after a short period of time, this might be a symptom of your refrigerator going down.
