A refrigerator is definitely a necessity in the kitchen. By keeping food cold, a refrigerator extends the freshness of the food and allows us to store food items for later consumption. A complete refrigerator failure can be devastating, as well as expensive, so here are three signs to watch out for that might signal the need for refrigerator repair.
- Leaking: Your refrigerator isn’t supposed to be surrounded by a pool of water on the floor. When the drains or hoses get blocked by food particles or other gunk, water will build up in the drain and begin leaking out of the refrigerator and onto the floor. You could also find that Freon is leaking out of your fridge. Either way, if you notice puddles around your fridge, you should get the problem fixed as soon as possible.
- Noises: Any noises that your refrigerator makes (when working properly) should be nothing more than soft or mellow hums. If your fridge is emitting loud, knocking noises, there might be an issue with the compressor or condenser fan.
- Unpreserved food: Another obvious sign that you need refrigerator repair is when you’re finding spoiled food all too often. A lack of a maintained temperature in the fridge results in food spoiling well before its expiration date. This could mean problems with the coils, condenser fan, or vents. If cleaning out your fridge doesn’t solve the problem, then you should call for professional help.
