Frozen dinners have been the staple of any family on the go or any student on a budget. This is why it can be such a shock when a freezer breaks down. For those in the Raytown area, then you are in luck. We can give your freezer a thorough once over and we’ll have it back to running in no time. Our experienced technicians have seen it all and will be able to provide you with a viable long term solution.
Too Much Noise
Loud banging and knocking are clear indicators that something is not right. It may be the evaporator coil that needs replacing. Give us a call and we can confirm that.
Frost Build Up
As strange as it seems, this may be due to the temperature being too low. The temperature should not be lower than O degrees. If everything seems kosher, but frost is still forming, observe where it’s forming. If it’s near the door, then the door may not be closing properly and its gaskets need replacing. The defroster heater may also need servicing. If the frost is piling up towards the back of the freezer, then it may be an issue with the defrost cycle.
Water Where it Shouldn’t Be
This could be due to a few different things: A leaking line, a valve or too much condensation. If it happens once, then it’s nothing to be alarmed about. However, a regular occurrence can indicate that it needs to be looked over by a professional.
Not Turning On
First, check to see how efficient the electrical flow is. You can just perform a basic electricity check:
- Is the unit plugged in correctly?
- Is the electrical outlet switched on?
- Is the outlet working at all?
If there are no changes, then it is a faulty set of controls. Give us a call and we can have it done in the blink of an eye.
On the opposite side of things, if the temperature is above O degrees, then your items won’t be kept cold enough to be preserved. Check to see how your freezer has been packed. If it’s been packed to the gills, air has no room to circulate and vents may also be blocked. This is a sure-fire way to make sure that items are not preserved properly. However, if the freezer is more than a little bare, then the freezer won’t be able to maintain the cold either. For most effective use, aim to pack the freezer between seventy and eighty-five percent capacity, and do so from the center outwards to avoid any vent blocking.
The thermostat, in the end, may need replacing if this doesn’t solve anything.
Don’t waste time playing eenie-meenie-miny-mo about the issue at hand. Give us a call and we’ll make sure that your freezer is back to staying cool in no time.
