Common Signs of a Broken Freezer
If the thermostat, door gasket or defrost timer malfunction, you could experience too much frost
in the freezer.
Strange noises are usually the result of motor or fan blade malfunctions.
If your freezer fails to show signs of life, it could be down to the start relay, thermostat or start capacitor – our experts will help to diagnose the exact issue.
- Freezer runs continuously
Conversely, the freezer may run too much. Here, the temperature control, thermostat or timer may be to blame.
It may sound counterintuitive, but a freezer which runs too cold can be an issue. If the temperature falls below 0 degrees, you could encounter problems.
A freezer which is too warm can spoil food and be a real headache; call us in to fix this as soon as you notice.
- Freezer producing puddles
If the water supply lines become blocked, you may notice puddles appearing on the floor or in the freezer. This could also be an issue with the alignment of the freezer, so double-check it is sitting comfortably on a flat surface.
Some noise is expected with any household appliance, but there are some which are a bigger cause for concern. If you noticer strange clunking or groaning sounds, there could be an issue with the evaporator or condenser fan motor. Catching this early gives you the best chance at a successful repair.
