REPLIES TO CUSTOMER'S REFRIGERATOR QUESTIONS
DOES REFRIGERATOR REPAIR COST A LOT?
Is your fridge hissing, sweating, buzzing, or leaking? We won't know the problem for sure until we inspect it, but when you give us an idea over the phone of what the symptoms are, it can make the time we spend at your home much shorter. When you help us with a diagnosis, you can earn $25 towards your repair! Our refrigerator repair service costs on average $125 - $220 but can be higher or lower depending on certain factors. Give us a call today PHONE, and we can speak to you about your fridge.
WHY DO ICE MAKERS BREAK A LOT?
It is true that certain brands of fridges have more delicate ice makers than others, and they do tend to break more easily. Some machines even have some very complex touch-screens. These are certainly a lot more complicated to fix and also tend to have a shorter lifespan than the rest of the fridge, so we don't recommend purchasing a fridge that has a touchscreen!
SHOULD I TRY TO REPAIR MY FRIDGE MYSELF?
We love people who want to save money and we respect the fact that you want to attempt a fridge repair on your own! We certainly do not recommend this, however, because in many cases, the fridges that our customers have tried to repair by themselves, become more damaged than they were in the first place!

CAN YOU SHARE REFRIGERATOR CARE TIPS?
Some of the best ways to maintain your fridge include:
- Don't leave the door open for extended periods.
- Never overload shelves.
- Always inspect ice levels.
- Make sure there is enough room between the fridge and the wall, on both sides of the fridge, and behind the fridge. This allows for proper air flow. Leave 2 inches at least.
- Keep fridge clean, inside and out.
- Use ice and water maker with care, to prolong life.
- Open and close doors gently.
I NEED SAME-DAY SERVICE!
Out of all of the repairs that we perform and all of the different appliances that we fix, refrigerators are usually our number one priority. We offer same day service for all of our appliance repairs, but we try to make it out to fridge repairs first. This is because of the fact that they carry a lot of food which can spoil quickly when the motor or cooling fan gives out. One of the first things we will do when we ask you if your refrigerator is broken is checked to see if it is cold inside. If it is cold inside you're probably looking at a different issue. However, when we determine that your food is not staying cold at the proper temperature, it can spoil quickly. This can cost you hundreds of dollars in lost food, especially if you just recently went shopping and stocked your fridge to its fullest.
