are the most used as well as the least troublesome of all electronic
appliances. Refrigerators help in storing food items and eatables, so
that they remain fresh for a longer period of time. They come very handy
when on a hot summer afternoon you want to enjoy a refreshing drink
with some ice cubes. Refrigerators, by far, are even the most affordable
electronic appliances. Almost every household in America has one. They
come in different shapes and sizes. Also there are numerous brands that
manufacture refrigerators and one can pick a fridge that fits ones
requirements and budget. The various brands around the world that
provide good quality refrigerators are Amana, Frigidaire, GE, Hotpoint,
Jenn Air, Kitchen Aid, Maytag, Samsung, LG, etc.
said and done, one has to keep in mind that refrigerators have plenty
of potential trouble areas too, which may cause for regular refrigerator
repair situations. It is a minor miracle of technology that they cause
so few complaints for most users. Many people who have had nothing but
complaints about their other appliances have never had refrigerator or
freezer troubles. They won't be interested in what follows. But for the
other section of the society that has refrigerator repair troubles all
the time, read on!
make sure when you are attempting to repair a refrigerator problem on
your own, that you are not too close to the electric wirings. Things
could get pretty ugly if you get messed up in one of these circuits and
get electrocuted. So why take a chance? If you realize that there indeed
is a problem with the fridge functioning, like the cooling is not
effective, there are temperature fluctuations inside the fridge, the
fridge shakes violently when power is on, the fridge leaks, or the
fridge is making unnatural and abnormal noises and creaks, the smartest
thing for you to do would be to call up a refrigerator repair
professional. Let the professionals come, diagnose and solve the
problem. They are experienced enough to know what is wrong with your
fridge and solve the problem. Chances are high that yours is a common
problem and one that the refrigerator repair men have experience and
expertise in handling. They would thereby finish the work in half the
time you would have, if you had even attempted to repair the
refrigerator yourself. Also this saves a lot of time and energy and
calling in a refrigerator repair technician is a later process, you
must be able to know when there indeed is a major problem with your
fridge. A rapid "click, click, click" sequence when the motor begins
probably means a short circuit in the winding. Motor hum followed by a
clicking noise also involves the winding (coil) of the motor. None of
these problems can be repaired at home, but you will at least know what
is involved. Also this will act as a signal for you to call up a
refrigerator repair technician. Replacing lights and light switches can
be done by you, though an expert and experienced professional help is
recommended. The door switch that controls the light is held either by a
screw or a tension spring. In the latter case, it simply pulls out. But
if you open the door and no lights come on, in a refrigerator with more
than one light, you know that the problem is not in the switches or
anything else inside the refrigerator, but in the power supply. If it
has only one light that could be burned out. If you open the door and
the light does come on, but the refrigerator doesn't work and the
freezer compartment shows signs of melting, you know that the problem is
in the motor or its switch.
When all else fails, and you need to have someone repair your refrigeratorr, call us at 918-355-4545 and we will have a refrigerator repair
person contact you promptly to assist you with your problem. Our
customers are our greatest asset and your recommendation to your friends
is you’re your greatest compliment to us. We are more than happy to
answer any questions about refrigerator repairs that you might have.
Even for the "do-it-yourselfers".
How Does a Refrigerator Work?
refrigerator doesn't actually cool things, it removes the heat from
them. But then you probably don't want a physics lesson. But you may
wonder where the "cold" comes from. So here is a little bit more
physics. When a gas goes from a state of high pressure to a state of low
pressure, the temperature of the gas drops.
refrigerator has a compressor and a closed system of tubing that
contains a gas (the refrigerant). The compressor pumps the refrigerant
and compresses it. The refrigerant flows through the coils on the back
or under the refrigerator and through an expansion valve to the inside
of the freezer. As the refrigerant passes through the expansion valve
the pressure drops and so does the temperature.
the freezer a fan circulates air over the cool tubing and the
refrigerant absorbs the heat from the freezer's relatively warmer air.
If you prefer to just think of the fan blowing cold air into the
appliance, that's fine, it all works out to pretty much the same
results. But technically, the heat is being pumped out rather than the
cold being pumped in.
cold air in most refrigerators, but not all, comes from the freezer.
The cold air in the freezer passes through vents to the refrigerator. A
thermostat in the refrigerator activates the compressor whenever the
temperature rises above the set point on the temperature control. In
some newer models there is a separate cooling coil for the freezer and
the refrigerator and thus two temperature controls.
the air in the refrigerator cools, the water in the air (humidity)
condenses. Water that condenses in the freezer will freeze into frost.
Most modern refrigerators have an automatic defroster in the freezer
which prevents the build up of frost. The defroster is simply a heating
element that is controlled by a defrost timer and a thermostat. The
water from the melted frost drains out of the refrigerator into a pan
beneath the refrigerator and evaporates.
door switch closes a circuit when the door is opened and turns on the
interior light. When the door is open some refrigerators will disable
some components such as the fan, defrost heater or "through the door"
ice and water dispensing.
common question we hear pertains to operating a refrigerator in the
garage or other unheated space during cold weather. Bottom line,
refrigerators and freezers don't cool efficeintly when operated at
temperatures below, roughly, 45 degrees (F). The first reason is that
the outside temperature may get low enough that the thermostat inside
the refrigerator never gets warm enough to activate the compressor and
so the freezer warms up to the outside temperature. Another problem is
that if it gets too cold, the refrigerant pressure becomes too low to
generate the necessary cold and so the freezer only chills down to the
Broken Arrow, and the Tulsa
