Modern refrigerators are engineered to last for more than a decade. However, even the best units will require servicing at some point. Here are some signs you need fridge repair:
Water on the Floor
When dealing with a leaky refrigerator, don’t be surprised to discover puddles on the floor. This is a problem that needs to be fixed as soon as possible. You definitely don’t want any water damage to occur. The cause of the leaking can stem from a few different issues, including a worn door seal and a clogged drain tube.
Prematurely spoiled food is one of the most obvious signs a fridge repair is necessary. Although you may need to simply adjust the thermostat, your refrigerator more likely has a mechanical problem. In order to prevent spoiling, the food needs to be kept at a temperature of around 40 °F. To prevent wasting money, have the refrigerator inspected by a local licensed professional.
Refrigerators naturally have a low hum. However, take notice of any strange noises. If you start to hear a tapping or growling sound, this indicates the need for fridge repair. A defective blower motor is a common cause of loud chatter. Failing to act will only lead to an even bigger headache. You want to prevent the blower motor from completely burning out.
Mold and Mildew
The presence of mold and mildew is a bad sign. Not only does mold cause your refrigerator to have a bad odor, but it can also trigger allergy symptoms. Contrary to common belief, mold isn’t just caused by expired food. If the rubber seals around the doors aren’t in good condition, mildew will creep inside the refrigerator.
Increased Energy Consumption
Many people tend to blame their higher electrical bills on other home appliances, especially the air conditioner. However, a poorly performing refrigerator can also drain more energy. If you happen to notice other signs like odd noises and warmer temperatures, there’s an even greater chance your refrigerator is the culprit. While your refrigerator may seem to be on its last leg, simple repairs can give it a new life. Routine refrigerator maintenance, such as cleaning the condenser coils, will save you even more money in the long run.

Springtime is an excellent time to clean your whole home. With fresh air blowing through your windows, you have an excellent opportunity to get rid of odors, dust and dirt that may have built up on your rugs, upholstery, hardwood floors and furniture. In addition, be sure to take your cleaning to the next level by including your home appliances on your spring cleaning checklist.
Cleaning Your Dishwasher
Your dishwasher is probably filled with bits of food as well as hard water deposits from frequent use. Thoroughly clean the screens and filters on the bottom of the dishwasher and also wipe down the sprayer arms. You may even want to use a shop vac to get rid of food debris. For very difficult-to-remove lime or calcium deposits, consider cleaning with a commercial cleanser, such as CLR or Lime-Away. (more…)

With three meals a day and special dinners created on the weekends, the kitchen is a hub of activity. You might operate three or four different kitchen appliances at once so that dinner is a resounding success. These appliances are constantly being used, but they’re often overlooked when it comes to maintenance. If you’re wondering if your kitchen appliance is failing, consider these simple observations that can confirm a breakdown. A serious failure could mean that a replacement is necessary.
Any dishwasher repair professional will tell you that strange sounds from your kitchen appliances aren’t good. In fact, these sounds usually occur when a failure has already happened. Parts might be spinning loosely in an appliance where further damages are slowly occurring. Listen to your dishwasher, refrigerator and garbage disposal.

Cool weather in autumn prompts residents to bake comforting food and to enjoy loved ones at home. Fall is also a great time to concentrate on your household appliances. Summer’s fun has passed, and those loyal appliances may be in need of some professional maintenance. Take a deeper look at your basic appliances and their preventative maintenance needs. You want them to run smoothly into winter and beyond.
The Hidden World Behind the Refrigerator
Listen to your refrigerator with a quiet household. It should have a low-level hum that’s barely noticeable. However, a refrigerator that has a loud sound will require some maintenance. A repair professional will pull the refrigerator out from the wall, and he or she will vacuum out the coils as an initial task. Clean coils will only improve the appliance’s heat-transfer process while quieting the humming sound too. Your professional will also examine other core areas on the refrigerator’s rear side. Any water leaks or hose cracks will be noted and repaired before the appliance is pushed back against the wall. (more…)
