Appliance Repair Questions
What is the main problem with refrigerators?
The primary problem usually is the water inlet valve. If the water pressure in this valve is too low, it may not fully close when the power is shut off. This will result in the valve leaking water into the icemaker, causing the ice maker to overflow.
Is it normal for my refrigerator to run constantly?
Most of us rarely take note of our refrigerator’s operation until it suddenly starts running all the time. A faulty defrost thermostat can result in a buildup of frost that restricts the flow of cold air. The other thing is a compressor, while modern compressors tend to run for longer periods, using less energy, they shouldn’t run continually. Contact our professional team to figure out if a simple adjustment, professional repair, or basic maintenance can resolve the issue.
How do you know if your refrigerator compressor is bad?
If you know your refrigerator is not running well, you may jump to the conclusion that the issue lies with the compressor. The truth is that many property owners have paid thousands of dollars for new appliances, or wasted money on replacing a compressor when it was not the issue at all.
My refrigerator is leaking water, what should I do?
If you have noticed your refrigerator is leaking water, the first thing to do is to open your fridge and look at the back wall to see if there is frost, ice buildup, or condensation. If any of these are present, then there may be an issue with the drain trough or drain tube on the back wall of your crisper drawer. If it is clogged, water can sit against the door gasket, which can cause water to drop out of the gasket when the door is opened. But if you are not sure what to do, call us for appliance repair services to avoid more serious damages.
How often should I do maintenance on my refrigerator?
Your refrigerator works 24 hours per day every day of the week every day of the year. With a workload like that, it deserves some maintenance. While some types of maintenance need to be done only once a year, there are also maintenance steps you can take on a daily basis.
What are the main issues with washing machines?
There are several common issues with any washers you can face such as vibrating, leaking water, strange noises, not running, not spinning and more. If you notice any of them it might be time to call professional help.
Why isn’t my dishwasher draining?
Though there can be a number of reasons a dishwasher won’t drain, the issue can often be fixed with a few troubleshooting steps, however, hire a professional to assess the system. Newer dishwashers may still be covered by their limited manufacturer’s warranty. If that’s expired but your dishwasher is instead covered by a home warranty, we will send a trained service technician to access the problem.
Why is my oven glowing, but not heating?
The gas should ignite when the bar becomes red hot. If this does not happen, you may need a new igniter or a new gas valve. As with any gas appliance you need special knowledge and skills to repair it, the gas fitters at Fix Appliances CA have TSSA certificates to provide gas appliance repair of any complexity.
What is a common problem with a gas stove?
Surface burner doesn’t light is one of the most common issues. If a surface burner doesn’t light and needs a few tires to come on, you need to clean it. Debris can clog portholes in the burner and obstruct gas flow.
What causes a gas oven to stop working?
An oven that won’t heat is usually the result of a faulty igniter (for a gas oven) or heating element (for an electric oven). You may be able to replace the heating element or igniter yourself: Make sure to turn off the power to your oven before servicing it. But the best decision is to contact experts to define the issues and repair your broken appliance.
