Signs You Need Freezer Repair
Your Freezer is too cold
A freezer needs to remain at the correct temperature to ensure your food remains well frozen and safe to eat. However too cold and you’ll notice increase accumulation of ice and frost. Therefore, if your freezer is icy but feels warm, then it is likely that your defrost heater has failed.
We can test the defrost system for you to find out the root cause of the problem and help you seek the right solution for you.
Your Freezer is too Hot
It is recommended by the FDA that a freezer is kept at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. A freezer that sits above this temperature can raise the temperature of the food kept within. This will affect its preservation and even encourage bacterial growth, which will leave you at great risk of nasties such as food poisoning.
If you’re worried your freezer isn’t cold enough you should first check over the settings and make sure the dial is in the correct position. If your freezer model doesn’t have an inbuilt thermometer, purchase one to allow you to keep temperature levels in check.
If everything seems in order and you’re left scratching your head then don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll get to the root of the problem and see it fixed.
Your Freezer Has Frost
All freezers have some degree of frost build-up but an excessive amount can indicate an issue with your appliance. Issues such as a torn gasket, a frozen drain tube, or a poor door seal can all cause excessive frost build-up.
Any issue which lets warm air enter your freezer will result in frost accumulating. In the case of a frozen drain tube, this blockage prevents moisture from escaping and instead will turn to frost.
The Freezer Won’t turn on
A freezer that won’t run can be caused by many issues some as simple as being unplugged. It can also be caused by a faulty power outlet that will need to repair by an electrician. If the outlet works but the freezer does not, then there are problems with the internal components. This may be caused by the electronic control board, the defrost timer, the thermostat, or the compressor.
