Refrigerator Repair Guide

Refrigerators are like any other appliances, if not cared for correctly they can be worn down at an earlier time; most have a lifespan between 9 to 13 years. In fact, homeowners who have high end commercial-grade appliances should consider getting frequent maintenance check-ups. 

How to decide if your refrigerator needs to be repaired or replaced:

First take into consideration the problem your appliance has, if the seals are the problem it is a simple repair. If your refrigerator is older than eight years or the repair estimate is more than half the price, consider replacing. On the other hand, if you have a high end appliance the repairs will be worth the cost. 

How to get an inexpensive repair:

If your refrigerator has an expired warranty, it may not be a free repair but most people would appreciate saving some money. The easiest way to get lower prices on repairs is to hire an independent contractor. 

Malfunctions:

If your unit has malfunction, do not waste time by allowing it to operate in such a condition, more money will be wasted the longer you wait. A refrigerator uses much more energy when it is forced to run while in need of repair, the older the refrigerator the more it wastes. Even if the malfunctioning comes and goes, it is better to get it fixed as soon as possible.
