A freezer is an important appliance to our homes to ensure that food can be preserved to last longer and as a place that can store ice for a hot summer day. If your freezer stops working, it can be overwhelmingly frustrating and often stressful to look for a replacement.
But before you replace your appliance, there is a cheaper alternative in hiring a professional repair service. By hiring a local Kuna appliance repair company like Kyle’s Appliance Repair you can save money and time by getting your appliance repaired, stress-free.
Signs You Need Freezer Repair
The freezer is too cold
If you notice that your freezer has a build-up of frost or that it’s too cold, it’s usually due to the door being open for prolonged periods of time.
However, if it’s too warm and isn’t preserving your food, it can be the defrost heater with a fault.
Our team of professionals is trained and certified to deal with a wide range of issues, regardless of brand or model.
The freezer isn’t sufficiently cold
It’s recommended by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that your freezer should be set at a temperature of 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Anywhere above this and you’ll notice that food won’t be preserved correctly. This can cause issues with foodborne diseases in your home.
It’s important to check your settings to ensure the temperature dial has not been adjusted by accident. If your freezer does not have a built-in thermometer, we recommend purchasing one.
If you’ve checked all of this, we can assist. Give us a call today.
There’s frost inside your freezer
If you begin to notice large amounts of frost inside of your appliance, there could be a large issue with your freezer. There are a few causes for this, including the drain tube being frozen, the door is opened or left open too often and possibly a ripped gasket.
Warm air getting into cold places can cause frost to build up. If moisture can’t escape because the drain tube is frozen, there will also be a build-up of frost.
The freezer just won’t turn on
If your freezer won’t turn on, do the regular checks of checking the fuse in the plug and ensure it has not blown, also check the outlet to ensure it’s providing enough power and ensure your home’s breaker has not tripped.
If the problem exists with the outlet, call an electrician to get it sorted. If there isn’t an issue with any of the above, it’s possible the issue exists with an internal part such as the defrost timer, thermostat, compressor or electronic control board.
Kyle’s Appliance Repair is able to find the source of the problem and fix it easily.
