Why is my Fridge Broken?
Your fridge could have broken for many reasons and there are many parts within your appliance that could go wrong. Common parts that need attention are the condenser coils which can become clogged, the compressor relay or the compressor itself, the defrost timer or heater, or the temperature control. The door switch or the door seals may also be to blame.

Common Refrigerator Issues
While it’s normal for your fridge to make a few small noises when it’s running, any loud or unpleased noise needs looking at. This can commonly be caused by a faulty evaporator fan, a damaged ice maker, or a failing condenser. We can replace the evaporator fan for you but don’t delay, as this type of issue can cause knock-on damage as a result.
Fridge Isn’t Cold
A warm fridge is completely pointless, and this scenario is usually the fault of the consider coils. This can be caused by debris buildup around the coils which impacts their function. This can be fixed with a good scrub, but if the issue continues, give us a call. We’ll likely diagnose a faulty condenser fan motor or an evaporator fan, but we could also spy problems with the start relay or capacitor for the condenser which is what gives it power.
If you notice puddles of water on the floor, then it is likely your refrigerators water filter, tank, or inlet valve is to blame. In the case of the tank assembly, a full replacement would be needed. This issue can also be caused by poor installation of the water filter which can be fixed by the correct installation.
