Boise Refrigerator Tips

One of the common problems with refrigerators is poor cooling. Especially when your GE, Whirlpool, Maytag, Kenmore, Frigidaire or Hotpoint refrigerator is a few years old, you can expect to face cooling issues sometimes. Temporary Low Cooling At first, you should check whether the issue is just temporary, and it may have occurred due to opening the door of the refrigerator too frequently in hot or humid weather, particularly if there are several people or guests at home. Such problem may not require refrigerator repair, and you can simply wait overnight, and the next morning you will find the normal cooling effect inside the refrigerator. If the Cooling Stops Completely Sometimes you may find that the refrigerator has stopped cooling completely, and the food and beverages inside are as warm as they are outside. In such a situation, before you call an appliance repair company, just check if the thermostat switch is set on the right level.

The side-by-side refrigerator is the most popular in Boise.  The freezer is usually located on the left hand side of the unit. The French-Door refrigerator is a combination of the Top-Mount and the Side-by-Side.  The refrigerator will be on top with two swinging doors and the freezer will be on the bottom, usually a pull-out drawer. Why the emphasis on where the freezer is located?  This is because the cool air in the refrigerator comes from the freezer via an evaporator fan.  The freezer is the “main” cooling unit which houses the evaporator and evaporator fan- motor to supply freezing air for the freezer and cool air to the refrigerator. So, what kind of repairs do make on refrigerators in Boise?  Well, here’s a few things we end up replacing – condenser fan motors, evaporator fan motors, blades, thermostats, compressors, control-boards, broken dispenser arms, ice-makers, [...]
