Common Reasons for a Fridge Repair

Fridge Repair

Homeowners in the Greater Houston, Conroe, Kingwood, Cypress, Tomball, Magnolia and Willis areas know when their refrigerator needs a service – but what leads to the need for a repair? Knowing the common reasons behind a refrigerator malfunction prevents problems in the future. We’ve listed some reasons you may be in need of a fridge repair from our team:

  • Over-Stocking

The more food, the better, right? Wrong. Over-stocking your refrigerator does more harm than good. Too much food in your appliance places stress on the components within the fridge. When these components malfunction, you’ll notice the tell-tale signs of a refrigerator needing repair.

  • The Model is Outdated

“An oldie but a goodie” doesn’t apply to your refrigerator. Older refrigerators are more likely to break down and need repairs. You’ll find yourself scheduling a service more than you use the appliance. A good rule of thumb is to replace your fridge every 10 years to avoid costly problems.

  • Compressor Motor Issue

Your fridge isn’t over-stocked, and you have a model less than 10 years old. What gives with the problems? Malfunctioning compression motors are hard for the average homeowner to diagnose. You’ll notice that your refrigerator needs a repair but can’t pinpoint the cause of the issue. It’s frustrating, but our team diagnoses and alerts you of any “hidden” reasons behind your repair.

  • Frayed Cables

Frayed cables are a major safety concern for your young family members. Electrocution is a risk when wires are exposed. Be sure to have this problem repaired as soon as possible. Who knew keeping your family safe is as simple as scheduling a refrigerator repair?
