5 Signs You Need to Hire Refrigeration Services for Repairs

If your refrigerator fails when you least expect it, it’s more than a little inconvenient. You’re going to lose hundreds of dollars on wasted food and have to repair or replace it. 

To avoid this, it’s best to know the warning signs that your fridge needs to be repaired, so you’re not caught off guard. 

Read below to learn what these warning signs look, sound, and taste like! And if you realize you do need refrigeration services, the people at Maytag Fridge Repairs can help you out!

  1. Loud or Unusual Noises

A refrigerator is always going to be making a little bit of noise, but you shouldn’t really notice it. But if your fridge is making loud humming or vibrating noises, that’s a problem. It could be that a fan is blocked, or something has come loose.

Whatever the cause of the noise is, it’s not good. You probably don’t need to replace your fridge, but you need a fridge repair to tighten or unblock whatever is causing the issue.

  1. Food Spoiling Early

This one might take a while to realize it’s happening. The cooling mechanism of your fridge can start failing, or the sealing mechanism might be damaged. Both of these can lead to your food spoiling earlier than it should.

If you eat spoiled food, you can get food poisoning. Depending on what you ate, and how badly it was spoiled, this can range from mild to severe. It’s not usually life-threatening, but you still want to avoid it. 

  1. Condensation or Ice Buildup

Your fridge being too cold indicates a repair is needed. You can tell your fridge is too cold if there is condensation, frost, or ice buildup. If any of these are present, it means there is a leak or malfunction in your fridge. 

Most leaks are repairable, but depending on the part, a malfunction might mean you need a new fridge.

  1. Using More Electricity

If your utility bill is going up even though your usage hasn’t changed, it’s possible that a fault with your fridge is to blame. Damaged fridges use extra electricity as they try to maintain their temperatures.

Even if you can’t see anything else wrong with the fridge, using extra electricity means something is not working.

  1. Older Than 10 Years

Fridges are designed to last a long time, but they still have a standard lifespan. If you have an old fridge (more than 10 years) there’s a good chance it’s going to need regular repairs. 

And even once repaired, older fridges tend to use more power as they get older. Repairing it once or twice is fine, but at some point, you need to consider if the cost of constant repairs is better than the cost of a new fridge. 

Getting Refrigeration Services

Refrigeration services can be the difference between saving your dying fridge and having to replace it. If you notice any of these signs of a failing fridge, get a refrigerator repaired as soon as possible!
