Your freezer means a lot more to you than you think. It preserves all of your food items. When it stops working, you risk several thousand dollars’ worth of food. If your freezer’s broken down, you don’t need to panic. Give Nick’s Appliance Repair a call and we will come assess the problem. Our technicians have years of experience and a wide array of skills, so they can get your freezer up and running in no time. We are known as the most time-efficient repair service in Holland and our emergency services are incomparable.
Why Has my Freezer Broken Down?
This could be due to many things. The drainage hose could be obstructed, or the door seals may be worn. Some of the inner components, such as the relay or the thermostat, may be damaged as well.
Even if the issue seems simple, we don’t recommend that you attempt any repairs on your own. DIY repairs, if done improperly, could cause more damage and end up costing you a lot more than your warranty covers. You could also risk the safety of your home and your family due to the electrical hazards that are present. Calling a professional will not only be easier on your wallet, but it will also be easier on your peace of mind.
Common Issues with Freezers
Clicking Noises that Come from nowhere
If your freezer is making audible noises, specifically clicking noises, then something is wrong. In most cases, the starting relay is responsible. Since it powers the compressor, if it isn’t supplying enough electricity, then you need to replace it. You may also need to install a new evaporator fan motor.
A Warm Freezer that Doesn’t Always Run
The electrical flow to the machine may have been compromised, especially if the freezer is plugged in. Check to see if a fuse has blown or if a breaker has been tripped. If the electricity hasn’t been compromised, then something may be obstructing the air vents, or the condenser coils may need cleaning. We are highly experienced in solving all of these problems.
If you notice water in and around the freezer that wasn’t there before, then you might need to look at the water inlet valve. If it’s been damaged, it needs to be replaced. The drain tube may be blocked and need cleaning.
When do I consider a replacement?
The life span of a freezer tends to average around seventeen years. At that point, instead of getting it repaired often, you should look into replacing it. Our team can help you select the best model for your household, as well as help you install it.
