Should I Repair or Replace My Refrigerator?
This is one of the most common questions regarding any home appliance. If your refrigerator is in its prime or younger than 20 years old, repairing it is a far more time- and cost-effective solution than replacing it. Fridges are one of the most fixable appliances. Most problems can be solved via routine maintenance or a part replacement.
Fridge problems of all kinds can be fixed with the help of appliance service professionals:
"My fridge is not cooling" - If you can hear your fridge's compressor running, but the temperature isn't changing, or you're dealing with inconsistent temperatures, check the temperature dial. If the settings are correct and you're continuing to deal with less-than-ideal temperatures, a busted thermometer, insufficient door seal, or another worn part may be to blame. A professional can inspect and solve your fridge's cooling problems in no time!
"My fridge is making unusual noises" - While light periodical humming is a normal part of the fridge keeping its cool, sudden changes in your fridge's noises could mean a dirty compressor or worn-out parts. Either way, one of our appliance service technicians can troubleshoot the newly developed noises and find a reliable fix.
"My fridge is leaking water" - Whether it's a result of a broken hose, a clogged defrost drain, or recent frost build-up overflowing the defrost drain, fridge leaks can be caused by a wide range of things. Quick action is needed to prevent water damage in your kitchen – so call for professional repair as soon as possible!

Frequently asked questions about refrigerator repair
What usually fails on a refrigerator?
The most common refrigerator malfunctions include faulty thermostats, a malfunctioning compressor, a broken seal, clogged or frozen defrost drains, and faulty fans. A thermostat issue can cause your fridge to run too cold or too warm, affecting the freshness of your food. Meanwhile, a malfunctioning compressor can make your refrigerator noisy, fail to cool your fridge, or cause inconsistent temperatures. A broken seal can let warmer air inside your fridge, making it work harder and run inefficiently. And a clogged or frozen defrost drain can lead to water accumulation and mold growth, while a faulty fan can cause poor air circulation or an ice buildup.
Is it worth repairing a fridge?
The answer depends on the age and condition of your refrigerator, the cost of repairs, and the cost of a new unit. Generally, if your fridge is less than five years old and the repair cost is less than half the price of a new one, it's worth fixing. On the other hand, if your fridge is older than ten years, has multiple malfunctions, or requires a costly repair, it may be more cost-effective to replace it. Consult with a professional repair technician or a salesperson to weigh your options and make an informed decision.
What is the most common refrigerator repair?
The most common refrigerator repair is fixing a faulty thermostat, which can cause your fridge to run too cold or too warm, affecting the freshness of your food. Most thermostats are easy to replace and cost between $100 to $200, depending on your unit's make and model.
What are the signs that your refrigerator is going out?
Several signs indicate that your refrigerator is going out, including:
- Your fridge runs continuously or turns on and off frequently. - Your fridge makes loud or unusual noises, such as banging, rattling, or buzzing. - Your food spoils too quickly or freezes in the refrigerator section. - Your fridge emits a foul odor, indicating a mold or bacterial growth. - Your refrigerator leaks water or forms ice buildup inside or outside.
If you notice any of these signs, call a professional repair technician to diagnose and fix your fridge as soon as possible to prevent further damage or safety hazards.
