Refrigerators can encounter problems and malfunctions over time due to constant usage or age. Knowing when to call a repairman for your refrigerator can help prevent further damage and boost its optimal performance. Here are some signs to schedule for refrigerator repair at A&D Appliances:

Inadequate Cooling

Inadequate cooling is one of the primary signs that something is wrong with your refrigerator. A compressor helps circulate refrigerant and maintain the desired temperature. If the compressor is faulty, it may not be able to cool the fridge effectively, resulting in spoiled food. A repairman from A&D Appliances can repair or replace the compressor, depending on the damage.

The condenser coils are responsible for dissipating heat from the refrigerator. Over time, they can become clogged with dust, debris, or pet hair, reducing efficiency and hindering cooling. Our industry-trained technicians can clean condenser coils to remove the blockage and restore normal functioning. 

Excessive Frost or Ice Buildup

Some frost buildup in the freezer is normal, but excessive frost or ice accumulation could indicate a problem with the defrost system. This issue could reduce cooling efficiency and damage your refrigerator if left unaddressed. During refrigerator repair, our skilled technician can inspect your freezer and defrost the ice buildup manually. We can also replace faulty air damper seals that increase frost accumulation. 

During the defrost cycle, the melted frost or ice should drain through a small drain tube into a pan beneath the refrigerator. If the drain tube becomes clogged with debris or food particles, it can cause water to back up and freeze, resulting in excessive ice buildup. Our repairman can inspect and clear the drain tube for proper working.

Faulty Seals or Door Gaskets

Damaged seals and gaskets can cause air leaks, leading to inefficient cooling and increased energy consumption. Cracks, splits, or tears in the seals or gaskets compromise your refrigerator’s insulation. Excessive condensation or moisture around the seals or gaskets indicates they are not sealing correctly, causing air leaks.

If the seals or gaskets appear loose, detached, or no longer adhere tightly to the door, we can replace these parts. If the damage is minor, our repairman can repair the damaged areas using adhesive or sealant. Our repairman can also readjust the seals or gaskets for a proper fit and seal.

Foul Smells

Persistent, unpleasant odors inside your fridge could indicate a problem with the drainage system, a faulty fan, or spoiled food trapped in your appliance. A malfunctioning fan or motor can cause inadequate air circulation, resulting in the accumulation of stagnant air and foul odors. A repairman at A&D Appliances can check these components and fix them.

If the drip tray becomes dirty or contaminated, it can produce foul odors. Our repairman can remove the drip tray, clean it thoroughly, and sanitize it to eliminate the odors.
