Freezers have a long lifespan in comparison to other appliances. They serve an important purpose, but they are a simple machine. Simple or not, they are not going to last forever and something is bound to break or go wrong. When it does go wrong, we are here to help, and quickly, so that none of the food in the freezer goes bad before we can fix it.
Although a freezer is a simple machine, that doesn’t mean that it is easy to fix. There are a lot of components within the freezer that work together to get the job done. If you don’t know what you are doing, you can do a lot more harm than good.
Here are some of the issues that will require you to call us is.
The freezer isn’t as cold as it should be.
If your freezer isn’t as cold as it should be, there are a couple of things that you are going to want to check first. You will want to make sure that the freezer is set to the right temperature. It should be set to 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
You should also make sure that it isn’t too full and that what you do have in the freezer isn’t blocking any of the vents. Blocked vents and too much stuff in the freezer can restrict the airflow within the freezer. If you checked all these things and all is good, it is likely a problem with the thermostat and we can take care of that no problem.
Frost can build up if the temperature is set below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. This should be the first thing that you check. If that is ok, you will want to see where the frost is located. If it is on the back wall, there may be a problem with the defrost cycle. If the frost is around the door, it could be a problem with the defroster heater, or the seal is bad on the door itself.
It’s making sounds it definitely shouldn’t be making.
When your freezer is making noises that are not the usual hums or swishes like loud knocks and bangs, it is likely that the evaporator coil is broken or faulty.
A leaky freezer
The source of the leak will be indicated by the amount of water that is leaking out. It could be that the drain is just blocked, there is too much condensation in the pan, or there is a leak in one of the water lines or valves. Our pros will be able to tell right away.
The freezer just isn’t working.
First, check the obvious. Make sure that it is plugged in, that the outlet that it is plugged into is working, and that the breaker in your home’s breaker box hasn’t been flipped off. If it is not one of these obvious, keep the lid shut and call Aaron’s Appliance Repair.
