Freezers Repair Services in Ogden
Do you have a broken freezer? A freezer attached to a fridge can start to wear down quickly due to a different compressor that is used to keep the food cold. Since freezers run frequently, the compressor can start to wear down and can break. VanderDoes Home Services provides advanced repair work for all varieties of freezers.
Why Is There Buildup Inside the Freezer?
Are you dealing with frost build up inside your freezer? When there is build-up inside the freezer, it stems from problems with the self-defrost system. Damaged door gaskets are another common problem with freezers as they allow blasts of warm air into the freezer, causing the compressor to work harder. Humidity in the air will come inside the freezer, which causes water to freeze onto the evaporator coils.
Freezers with self-defrost are designed to defrost every 6-12 hours as the compressor turns off and a defrost heater turns on to melt the build-up on the coils. The ice will melt and drain underneath the freezer into a pan. If one of the component fails, the evaporator coils can end up with too much buildup and no airflow over the coils will cause freezing of water on the coils.
While most homeowners can reset their freezer by turning it off for a day or longer, others freezers will need the defrost thermostat, heater, or timer replaced.
The Freezer Keeps Running
A freezer needs to run frequently to keep food cold. However, when a freezer keeps running, it can indicate a problem with the compressor. The thermostat is in control of the compressor and it will only turn off when the temperature is lower than the setting. If the thermostat will not turn off, you will need to replace it.
