Refrigerator Repairs Topeka Kansas
The refrigerator is one of the most important appliances in your house because it stores foods and drinks. If your refrigerator isn't working first make sure it is plugged in and your light turns on when you open the door. Another helpful hint is if it's plugged in but the light is not working make sure to check out your panel box or GFI protected outlet to make sure non of them are tripped. If you suspect this might be the problem most times we can walk you through it over the phone without having to come out. If this is not your problem you need to write down all the symptoms of your refrigerator, doing this will help you and your appliance repair technician diagnose the problem much quicker.
Some common issue refrigerators have include the compressor. A compressor is the part of the fridge that makes it cold. It works by compressing refrigerant vapor into the coils of the refrigerator. If you notice that your freezer fan is running, but your fridge is not getting colder it could possible be from your compressor or the compressor start relay which turns on your compressor could be bad. If that is the case you will need to replace the compressor or the relay associated with the compressor with a new one.
Another common issue can come from the condenser coils which pushes the hot gas created by the compressor to the evaporator coils. When the refrigerant journeys through the coils at a extremely high pressure it begins to get cold again and turns back into a liquid form. The problems occurs when clogged condenser coils start producing poor circulation of air, When this happens it will start to restrict your refrigerators ability to keep cool. The solution is to give your coils a cleaning because they a clogged. To do this you will need a special brush called a coil brush tool. If you think this could be the problem you can always give us a call.
The next common problems can come from either of the two fans that help to cool down the condenser coils and compressor. These fans are called the condenser and evaporator fans. If one or the other doesn't turn on first check to make sure they are not stuck by a foreign object. Once you have determined they are not but one or the other fans still wont turn on you will need to replace old fan motor with a new fan motor.
