Signs That Your Freezer Needs Repairs
The Freezer’s A Little Too Frosty
Freezers need to be cold enough to properly preserve whatever is inside it. But a freezer can be too cold, and this leads to frost build-up. If you call Mark’s Appliance Repair, we can come test the defrost system and pinpoint what is causing the extreme cold. The damper control assembly might also be faulty and need replacing.
The Freezer’s Not Frosty Enough
The freezer should be set at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), anything above 0 degrees will not preserve food properly, which subjects you to possible foodborne diseases. Check the temperature settings to make sure that nothing was adjusted accidentally. If the temperature settings are in order, then contact us and we will come properly diagnose the appliance.
The Freezer is (Literally) Frosty
It is normal to see a little frost build-up in freezers. If the frost is excessive, however, that is not normal. This could be due to many things. It could be something as simple as the freezer door being left open for too long and too often. It could also be a drain tube that froze, preventing any moisture from escaping. This leads to frost build-up.
The Freezer Has No Power
A freezer that won’t turn on is, most likely, suffering from a power issue. First, check to see if the power current hasn’t been compromised or if the electrical outlet hasn’t been compromised. If the problem lies with the outlet, an electrician can come and repair it. There may also be an issue with the internal moving parts, including the compressor, defrost timer or control board.
Mark’s Appliance Repair service can give the appliance a proper once over and offer you a long-term solution.
