One of the greatest conveniences of modern times is having an in home freeze and ice maker. This is why when these appliances go down, especially with our hot and humid weather, it’s critical to get them running again. A broken freezer not only means potential food spoilage but can also lead to leaks in the unit that require constant cleaning. Similarly, a broken ice maker is a nightmare, especially in those summer months when we need our iced drinks the most. When it comes to ice maker and freezer repair, there’s no problem too big or too small for our team.
When a freezer isn’t working properly, it’s a major inconvenience for the household. Not only does everything need to be moved to an appropriate location, but frozen items either need to be consumed immediately or discarded. In other cases the freezer may be running too cold, creating freezer burn on everything inside. Other problems like sheets of ice or frost buildup on the unit can be indicative of a larger impending problem with the thermostat or auto-defrosting system. This is why it’s best to let experts take a look at the freezer if there are suspicions or evidence of something going awry.
Freezer repair is a particularly delicate operation because of the components involved in keeping it running - which is why we suggest having it serviced by our professionals. Using a thermostat to maintain balance, the freezer is closely connected to the chilling of the refrigerator. The units also produce a great deal of heat when compressing the refrigerant that keeps the unit cool. Our experts know whether freezer issues are a matter of replacing a faulty gasket or whether there’s a need for more invasive repairs and replacement. We not only check the faulty equipment, but make sure the freezer is performing at an optimal level including advice for preventative maintenance.
