Commercial & Residential Refrigeration Repair
Most common refrigerator problems include:
If your compressor is making loud noises and running for an extended period of time, these are good indicators that it needs to be replaced, since compressors cannot be repaired.
Dust, pet hair and debris can accumulate on the condenser coils and prevent the refrigerator from cooling. Unplug the refrigerator and clean the coils with a condenser brush or a vacuum cleaner.
If the condenser fan is making noise, there may be an accumulation of dirt and debris on the fan. Clean it with the brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner. If you never hear the condenser fan operating, it may be defective and need replacing.
In March 2009, the Maytag Corporation recalled refrigerators with the brand names Maytag, Amana, Magic Chef, Admiral, Crosby, Jenn-Air and Performa. These appliances had a faulty relay in the compressor, which caused the refrigerators to overheat. Maytag reported 41 instances of fires, 16 of which resulted in property damage. Also, in November 2010, a recall was issued for French-Door LG and Sears Kenmore refrigerators due to an interior light that did not go off when the door was closed. This continuous burning caused the refrigerators to overheat and posed a fire hazard.

- High Energy BillsAccording to the U.S. Energy Star program, refrigerators produced before 1993 use twice as much energy as newer models that are Energy Star certified. The program advises that the shelf life of most refrigerators is 14 years.
- Engine Runs NonstopDepending on your refrigerator model, it is normal for the motor to run often or even most of the time. Close observation is necessary to determine if the motor truly runs all the time. Motors running nonstop point to a problem with the motor itself, the internal thermometer or another cooling problem. A motor that never runs is a sign your fridge is already dead.
