Repairing your Refrigerator
The refrigerator is an appliance which has become indispensable in our homes. It is perhaps one of the appliances that works non-stop keeping our food fresh and cool. Nowadays there is a huge variety of Fridges for Sale. You must keep in mind the size of fridge that your family requires and the climate of your region which will decide the cooling that your fridge must provide. If you require a very high degree of cooling it would be a good idea to buy a fridge that saves electricity effectively. Also check for an in-built stabilizer or buy one separately to protect your fridge from electric voltage fluctuations. This will not only protect your fridge but also give it a longer life.
It is a surprising fact that despite the hectic work the fridge performs , it creates problems or stops working quite less frequently. When your fridge stops working it can become very inconvenient as you not only have to shell out a lot of money for repair but also have to replace the food stored in the fridge. If you are familiar with the basic mechanism of working of the fridge you can repair it yourself. But in some cases calling a professional is a must as you might be exposed to dangerous hazards.
A fridge basically consists of an evaporator and a condenser coil through which pass the coolant refrigerant liquid. This liquid is cooled at the condenser coil outside the fridge and as it passes through the evaporator coil inside, it cools the inside atmosphere of the fridge causing the cooling effect of the fridge. The liquid is propelled through the coils with the help of a capacitor motor.
While repairing the fridge it is necessary to unplug it first. As the capacitor may store electric current even after unplugging it should be discharged by a resistor. The coils, thermostat, limit switch all must be checked for the source of the trouble. In most cases Refrigerator Repairs are necessary because of problems caused by the door and the wiring of the fridge. The fridge gasket must be serviced regularly for the fridge to deliver optimum performance. Sometimes the drain ports get blocked by ice or debris and simply clearing these can repair the fridge. If you detect an acrid smell then it means that there is a leak of the refrigerant liquid and you must call in a professional at once as leakage of this coolant is extremely hazardous to health. Also in case of repair of capacitor motor do not try to repair the fridge yourself as this may increase the problem. In most cases frayed wiring and defective door gasket are the source of fridge problems.
Hence while choosing from fridges for sale it is essential to select a good brand which gives you a service warranty for some years. Regular cleaning and servicing of your fridge itself prevents technical problems and enables the fridge to give its best performance for a long time.
