Refrigerators have a lot going on. You have two separate sections with temperatures that are expected to be unique to each. You also have a system of coolants and engines that ensure the fridge works consistently. American Repair Service is known for our superior appliance repair in Long Island. Among our expertise is KitchenAid and Viking refrigerator repair, among other brands.
Even when calling us at American Repair Service, it remains valuable to understand some of the basics of what could go wrong with your refrigerator and why.
Among the more common problems is your refrigerator’s defrost function. Most fridges have a self-defrost mode that keeps evaporator coils from icing over. Ironically, some ice-covered evaporator coils can cause the temperature inside the freezer and fridge to plummet. On the other side of the spectrum, the coils can get locked into defrost mode, causing the fridge to stop all together.
Your own ability to fix a problem with your fridge’s defrost function is probably quite limited. Replacement parts are hard to find on the open market and the specifics of fixing evaporator coils or a fridge engine can be downright perplexing. If you are have issues requiring Viking or KitchenAid fridge repair, do not hesitate to call us.
