When your refrigerator breaks down you need to call for help right away. Your meat, produce, and dairy will spoil if they thaw out and warm up. The first thing to do is to shut the refrigerator door to keep the cold in as long as possible and then call for help.

We get the most refrigerator calls because of loud noises. It is important to deal with these noises because they are telling you that a part is failing and that the next event will be the refrigerator not working at all. Common reasons for loud refrigerator noises are failing condenser fan motors or a damaged evaporator fan motor in the freezer. These problems are in different parts of the refrigerator so we may ask you to tell where the noise comes from so that we can be sure to bring the right tools and parts to do the job.
Our certified appliance repairmen routinely fix refrigerator leaks. The most reasons for a leaking refrigerator are broken water inlet valves or door closure or latch problems. We carry the necessary parts to fix leaks on a short service call. Call us as soon as you finish mopping up.
The most common and most embarrassing reason we see for why a refrigerator will not start or run is that it is not plugged in or the circuit breaker has flipped off. Check these issues before you call. Otherwise, there are two common reasons for this problem. The compressor overload relay is broken or there is a malfunction with the temperature control. We can repair these problems with manufacturer parts the same day that you call for help.
ICE MAKER WON’T MAKE ICE
When your ice maker doesn’t make ice there a problem in the freezer with temperature control, the water inlet valve is broken, or there is a problem with the water fill tube. And, if your ice cubes have a disagreeable smell it is because the ice maker is working too slowly. We fix all of these problems with a brief service visit.
FRIDGE TOO COLD/TOO WARM
Your refrigerator needs to work within the “Goldilocks” range, not too hot and not too cold but just right! If the frig is too warm there is commonly broken air inlet damper. When the frig errs on the too-cold side, the problem is with the thermistor or temperature control. These parts also cause freezers to run too cold. We are experienced in fixing temperature issues with both freezers and refrigerators for all major brands.
BROKEN WATER DISPENSER
An uncommon refrigerator problem is a non-functioning water dispenser. This is caused by problems with water inlet valves or the dispenser actuators. We carry the parts and tools to fix even this rare issue on GE, Sub-Zero, Whirlpool, Sears, Kenmore, and other major brands of refrigerators.
DOOR LATCH/BULB PROBLEMS
When the refrigerator door latch is broken or for whatever reason the door does not close correctly you will have condensation and leaks. Call us to fix this issue. We will check it out and fix the problem be it a damaged gasket or seal, broken hinge, or broken latch. And, while we are fixing things we will replace that burned out light bulb too!
