Professional Refrigerator Repair Services
Refrigerators are essential appliances in our homes and commercial establishments. They are crucial to keeping our food fresh and preserving perishable items. However, refrigerators, as with all appliances, are prone to breakdowns and malfunctions over time, like any other machine. When a refrigerator stops working or exhibits signs of trouble, addressing the issue promptly is essential to avoid food spoilage and inconvenience.
That is why if you have any problems with your refrigerator, call Robs Appliance Plus, and we will fix all the problems with it.
Common Refrigerator Problems
Refrigerators are essential appliances in our daily lives, but they can experience various issues over time. Some common refrigerator problems include:
- Not cooling enough: If your refrigerator is not cooling correctly, it could be due to several factors. The condenser coils might be dirty and need cleaning, the evaporator or condenser fan might malfunction, the thermostat or electronic temperature control could be failing, even a clog or restriction in the defrost drain can result in its cooling system not being cool enough.
- Excessive cooling/freezing: On the other hand, if your refrigerator is freezing, food or items are getting too cold, the electronic temperature control or thermostat might be faulty. A malfunctioning thermistor or a stuck open damper control could also cause the refrigerator to cool excessively.
- Door seal problems: A faulty door seal, also known as a gasket, can lead to warm air seeping into the refrigerator and causing inefficient cooling. This issue can be resolved by cleaning or replacing the gasket if it is damaged and making sure the doors and/or drawers are closed completely.
- Refrigerator cycling frequently: If your refrigerator is cycling on and off too frequently, it might indicate a problem with the electronic temperature control, thermostat, defrost timer, or compressor. These components may need to be inspected and repaired or replaced if necessary.
- Fridge not running: If your refrigerator does not turn on or is entirely unresponsive, check the power supply, including the outlet and circuit breaker. A faulty power cord or an issue with the electronic control board or thermostat could also be responsible.
In case you encounter any of these problems, it’s recommended to consult the refrigerator’s user manual, contact the manufacturer’s customer support, or seek assistance from professional appliance repair technicians like us at Robs Appliance Plus to diagnose and resolve the issue safely.
Troubleshooting Refrigerator Issues
Troubleshooting refrigerator issues can be frustrating, but you can often identify and fix common problems systematically. Firstly, if your refrigerator is not cooling appropriately, check the temperature settings and make sure they are set correctly. Don’t expect to turn down your temperature control to fix this problem. If the refrigerator cannot reach the recommended temperature, telling it to cool “more” will usually not help. Ensure that food items do not block the vents inside the fridge and freezer, which can restrict airflow. Additionally, inspect the condenser coils at the back or underneath the unit and clean them if they are covered in dust or debris. A dirty condenser can impede proper cooling and may need to be vacuumed or brushed clean.
Secondly, if you notice excessive frost buildup in the freezer, it could indicate a problem with the defrost system, a restricted or clogged drain.. Check if the defrost timer or control board, defrost timer or sensor, heater, or thermostat is functioning correctly. The defrost timer controls the defrost cycle, the defrost heater melts the frost, and the defrost thermostat monitors the temperature. The defrost thermostat allows power to get to the heater and cuts it off when it reaches 45 degrees. Any malfunction in these components can result in frost accumulation. You may need to replace faulty parts to solve the issue.
Lastly, if your refrigerator makes unusual noises, such as grinding, buzzing, or rattling, it could be due to various reasons. Check if the refrigerator is level using a spirit level and adjust the leveling legs if necessary. A faulty condenser fan motor, a malfunctioning compressor, or a worn-out evaporator fan motor can also cause noise. Excessive frost or ice can build up and encroach on the evaporator fan causing a “helicopter sound”. It’s recommended to consult the user manual for specific troubleshooting steps or contact a professional technician like at Robs Appliance Plus for further assistance if the issue persists.
Remember, if you’re uncertain or uncomfortable with troubleshooting electrical appliances, it’s always best to seek help from Robs Appliance Plus to ensure your safety and the safety of your appliance, and prevent further damage to your refrigerator.

Finding Reliable Refrigerator Repair Services
When looking for reliable refrigerator repair services, there are a few steps you can take to ensure you find a reputable and trustworthy service provider. Here’s a guide to help you find reliable refrigerator repair services:
- Ask for recommendations: Ask your friends, family, or neighbors if they have any recommendations for refrigerator repair services. Personal referrals can often be a reliable source of information.
- Check online reviews and ratings: Look for online platforms that provide reviews and ratings for local repair companies. Websites like Google, Yelp, and Yahoo can provide valuable insights into the reputation and quality of service of different repair companies. Read both positive and negative reviews to get a balanced perspective. Don’t just look at how many stars they have. Read what their customers are saying about them.
- Compare prices and services: Contact multiple repair companies and request a quote for your needed repair service. While price shouldn’t be the sole determining factor, comparing prices to ensure you’re getting a fair deal is essential. Additionally, inquire about the services included in the price and if there are any additional fees, charges, or discounts.
- Seek manufacturer-authorized service centers: If your refrigerator is still under warranty, it’s advisable to contact the manufacturer or check their website for authorized appliance repair service centers. Manufacturer-authorized service centers typically have the expertise to handle warranty repairs and access genuine parts for appliance repair. Not all repair companies do factory warranty work. Let them know that’s what you need ahead of time, so nobody is surprised when the work is done and you are presented with a bill.
By following these steps, you should be able to find reliable refrigerator repair services that can address your needs effectively.

Here are some frequently asked questions.
How do I know if my refrigerator needs repair?
If you notice issues like inadequate cooling, excessive frost buildup, strange noises, or water leaks, your refrigerator likely needs repair.
Why is my refrigerator not cooling properly?
Inadequate cooling can be caused by a malfunctioning thermostat or electronic control, a faulty compressor or refrigerant leak, blocked air vents and drains, or a dirty condenser coil. A professional technician from Robs Appliance Plus can determine the exact cause and repair it.
Can a power outage damage my refrigerator?
Power outages can harm refrigerator electronics. When the power is restored, voltage fluctuations can occur, damaging the sensitive electronics and other components. It’s advisable to unplug the refrigerator during prolonged outages to avoid the electrical spike when power comes back on. Most power companies can install a whole house surge protector for a small monthly charge applied towards ownership. It will protect everything, including your 240 vac appliances such as ranges, water heaters, air conditioners, wall ovens etc.
Why is my refrigerator not dispensing water or ice?
This problem may arise from issues with the water inlet valve, a clogged water line, a faulty dispenser switch, or a problem with the ice panel box or ice maker assembly. A professional appliance service technician can diagnose and fix the specific cause of the dispensing issue.
Should I repair or replace my refrigerator?
If your refrigerator is relatively new and the repair cost is reasonable, it’s usually more cost-effective to repair it. However, if your refrigerator is old, the repair cost is high, or it has frequent breakdowns, replacing it might be a better option for your part. At Robs Appliance Plus, we advise customers as if you were family. Even if we lose the cost of a repair advising replacement instead, your trust and confidence in us will make up for it in us getting called back in the future and referrals to your friends, family, and neighbors.
How long does refrigerator repair take?
The repair duration can vary depending on the problem and the availability of parts. Simple refrigerator repairs can be completed within an hour, while complex issues might require more time and a second trip with parts. Most repairs are done within an hour if we pre-diagnosed correctly and bring the part with us.
Are there any appliance repairs performed aside from the refrigerator?
Yes, our appliance repair business offers much more than refrigerator repair. We repair freezers, electric and gas ranges, electric and gas cooktops, electric and gas ovens, dishwashers, trash compactors, microwaves, washers, dryers, and garbage disposals. We also install all of these appliances.
