Common Issues That Freezers Face
Excessive and Strange Noises
If you are terrified by the sounds that your freezer is making, then you may need to check out the evaporator coil. Freezers will always make small noises, but anything excessive is not normal. Give us a call and we’ll come and repair the issue.
The temperature, most likely, is too low. Check if you can fix the temperature manually. If this doesn’t work, then find out where the frost is forming. If the frost is by the door, then that could mean that the door is not being closed properly. The gaskets or the defrost heater may need servicing and replacing. The defrost cycle might need replacing if you notice that the frost accumulation is towards the back of the freezer.
If it’s only a little splash of water, then it may be a stray ice cube that’s melted. If you notice a slightly larger puddle, then the drain may be clogged and need cleaning. However, if there’s a significant leak, then the water line or valve may need to be looked at. There may also be too much condensation in the evaporator pan.
Won’t Turn On
First, check to see if the freezer is plugged in properly and if the outlet is working. If everything is normal, then keep the freezer closed and give us a call. We can come and see if the controls need replacing or if there’s something else wrong.
The freezer should be constantly at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. You can usually adjust the temperature manually. You can also check to see how much food you’ve packed into the freezer. Too much food in the freezer doesn’t allow cold air to circulate, and not enough food won’t hold any cold air in. Freezers, ideally, should be between seventy-five and eighty-five percent capacity. The freezer should also be in an environment where the outside temperature is between 55-110 degrees Fahrenheit. If the environment is too cold or too hot, then the freezer will have to work overtime to keep its temperature regulated.
If none of the above helps, then give us a call. It could be an issue with the thermostat, and we can help you service it.
You don’t need to pray for a miracle. Call John’s Appliance Repair and we’ll send one of our technicians out to fix the issue at a good price.
