When your freezer is malfunctioning or broken altogether, it is a serious and time-sensitive issue. If you are not able to get the freezer working quickly, it could cost you hundreds (maybe even thousands) of dollars in food and a lot of time cleaning up a huge mess. Chad’s Appliance Repair understands the time-sensitivity of getting a freezer fixed.
We offer same-day repair service so we can be in your home the same day that you call us. This can be a real lifesaver when it comes to freezers. Chad’s Appliance Repair should be your go-to appliance service in and around the Arlington, TX area.
Why The Freezer Broke
From condenser coils to thermostats, evaporator fans to door seals, there are a lot of different parts of a freezer that can break or malfunction. If you are not experienced in dealing with all the different parts and components of a freezer, you should call in a professional. DIY repair attempts can result in causing more harm than any good that you may have meant.
Do-it-yourself repairs sound really good in theory, as long as you know what you are doing. For someone who has no experience repairing freezers, they can really cause more damage to their freezer trying to fix it themselves. You could also be putting any warranty that you may have on the machine in jeopardy too.
What many don’t realize is that they are also risking their safety. There are a lot of electrical components and you can risk injury to yourself trying to fix it yourself. The professional technicians at Chad’s Appliance Repair have years, if not decades, of experience repairing all of the major brands (and even the off brands too). We can help to make sure that you keep green in your pocket, stay safe, and avoid voiding your warranty.
Common Freezer Issues
Freezer Not Running or Not Running As Cold As It Should
It may seem obvious, but you should make sure that the machine is plugged in first. If it is plugged in and it is not turning on, you can be sure that there is a disruption in the transmission of power somewhere. You should check to make sure that the breaker in your home’s fuse box wasn’t tripped, and if that is good, give us a call.
If the freezer is running but it isn’t as cold as it should be, there may be an airflow restriction, a bad evaporator fan, or blocked condenser coils. Whatever it is, we can get your freezer up and running again.
Loud Clicking Noise Coming From The Freezer
This problem can likely be attributed to the compressor or the start relay. The start relay tells the compressor when to turn on and if it burned out, the compressor will not turn on and the relay will need to be replaced. It could also be a bad evaporator fan motor or worn-out compressor mounts.
A Leaky Freezer
It can happen that water can leak into or out of the freezer. This can be caused by a broken water inlet valve or a clogged drain tube, respectively.
When To Replace The Freezer
Freezers are an appliance that tends to have a longer lifespan than most others, around 17 years. Once your freezer starts to get up there in the years, you are going to find that it will need more repairs than it once did. When that time comes, a replacement is likely in your future. The professionals at Chad’s Appliance Repair can help you in this decision from deciding on the right model for you to getting it installed.
