Fridges don’t break down very often. Even old ones. In fact, older ones are built tough to last. Being able to identify a problem with your fridge early will enable you to call for help quickly and save on expensive repairs. This blog post is the first in a series that will help you look after your fridge better.
So, what are some of the common signs that all’s not well with the most hard-working appliance in the house?
There a few reasons why that could happen:
Now this seems more alarming than water leaking outside the fridge, but apart from having soggy food inside the fridge, is not insurmountable. The most likely cause is a plugged drain pipe. Either food or packaging can create an obstruction. This may sound unlikely, but frozen peas are the most common cause of blocked drains. So, don’t let them escape - seal them with a rubber band, clip or buy ones in resealable packaging.
Coming back to the solution. You could try and clear the drain using a pipe-cleaner, but to prevent damage to your fridge, we recommend you call a fridge repair service, who will not only clear it safely, they will make sure there is no other problem.
That’s serious. Before you jump online to find a repairman, run through this checklist.
Before you call someone to repair your fridge, make sure they are licensed professionals who are experienced in repairing most leading brands and models, offer a full warranty and carry a range of spare parts. Getting someone like Melbourne Fridgeworks who can fix it onsite will save you transportation costs and get your fridge working in the quickest time possible. Breakdowns come without a warning, so call someone who offers an after-hours and weekend service.
