Fridge not cold  Reply with quote  

hey guys, need some expert advice on fridges.

My MIL's home fridge, 12 years old liao. Suddenly not cold already. I ask one of fridge salesman and his advise is to switch off the fridge for 2 hours and switch on again. See if it is back to normal. If it is still no good, then the fridge up lorry liao.

MIL followed instructions and still find the fridge not cold anymore.

So my question is: what else can we do? Is it due to no more compressor gas? Can ask the repair guy to come and see? or just throw and buy new one?

Pay about $75 to a appliance repairman to get a diagnosis. If the compressor has failed,, it is time for a new fridge. But if the compressor/ the lines /the evaporator / or the condenser has a refrigerant leak, have it repaired and have the system charged with refrigerant (the $75 will be applied to the repair bill).

We have an old fridge that needs repair. We call fridge freezer repairs in Los Angeles and they were able to come the sam day. They figure out the problem quickly and were very professional. The price was fare. We would recommend them and definitely call them again if we need other services.
