Types of Freezer We Repair

Upright Freezers

Upright freezers are the most common domestic freezer type. They stand vertically and have front-opening doors. Upright freezers are typically more compact in size than chest freezers, allowing easy access to contents. However, they offer more limited freezer capacity compared to chest styles.

Chest Freezers

Chest freezers open from the top down and provide ample freezing space. The large open compartment allows convenient storage of bulk frozen foods and large items. But the top-opening lid can be heavy and difficult to lift. Overall chest freezers deliver much greater capacity than upright models.

Commercial Freezers

Commercial freezers are designed for use in restaurants, cafes, and food service establishments. They offer very large storage capacity to meet high volume freezing needs. Commercial freezers are built with durable, rugged construction to withstand heavy use. Temperature can be precisely controlled to maintain ideal freezing conditions.

At ApplianceFix we specialize in repairing freezers of all these types – upright, chest, and commercial. Contact us for expertise fixing any freezer issue or problem. We’ll get your freezer back to working order quickly and efficiently.

Common Problems Freezer

As with any appliance, freezers can develop a variety of issues that require professional service and repair. Our experienced technicians have seen all types of freezer problems and are equipped to accurately diagnose and fix whatever problem you may be experiencing.

Not Cooling Properly

One of the most common issues with freezers is a failure to properly cool or maintain the set temperature. There are several possible causes of cooling failure:

Faulty Thermostat

The thermostat is essentially the temperature control of your freezer. Defective thermostats that cannot accurately sense temperature will not activate the compressor appropriately to cool the unit. We troubleshoot thermostat issues and replace any defective thermostat.

Refrigerant Leaks

If the sealed refrigerant system develops a leak, the levels of refrigerant can drop too low to provide efficient cooling. Our technicians have specialized tools to identify any leaks in the lines or seals. We can repair leaks and recharge the refrigerant to restore cooling functionality.

Condenser Coil Problems

The condenser coils dissipate heat outside of the freezer. If they become obstructed with dust or debris, heat cannot dissipate properly to cool the interior. We thoroughly clean condenser coils as needed to maintain proper operation.

Excessive Ice Buildup

Too much frost and ice accumulating inside the freezer is another common problem:

Defrost System Failure

Freezers have a defrost system to periodically melt away frost accumulation on the cooling coils. If the defrost timer or heater fail, ice can build up over time. We troubleshoot the defrost system and replace any faulty parts.

Damaged Door Seals

Broken or improperly sealing door gaskets allow cold air to leak out, leading to excessive frost and ice. Our technicians carefully inspect door seals and replace worn or damaged ones as needed.

Before You Call Us

While some appliance issues require a professional repair technician, there are basic troubleshooting steps you can try yourself first:

Reset the Appliance

Unplug the appliance from the power source, wait 30 seconds, then plug it back in. This simple reset can resolve minor glitches.

Check the Power

Make sure the appliance is plugged in and the outlet is working. Test the outlet with another device or lamp. A tripped breaker or power outage could be the issue.

Examine Door Seals

Inspect the door gaskets for any gaps or breaks that allow cold air leakage. Tighten door hinges if needed.

Clean Condenser Coils

Use a vacuum with a brush to remove dirt and debris clogging the exterior condenser coils. Proper airflow is essential.

Adjust Temperature Setting

Make sure the temperature control is set appropriately and functioning properly. Higher settings naturally warm the interior.
