Brisbane Appliance Services is pleased to help our clients care for their major home appliances (e.g. fridge, air Conditioner, washing machine).
To make your service call request as rewarding as possible, we suggest you review the following check list for possible solutions you can try first. Call for repair if these possible solutions do not resolve the problem you’re experiencing.
My refrigerator/fridge is not working.
Check the circuit breaker at the main electrical box. Has it tripped? If the circuit breaker has tripped, reset the circuit breaker by shutting it off and then turning it on again. If the circuit breaker looks okay and there is still a problem with the machine, then, call us for service.
Unplug the fridge/refrigerator cord from the outlet. Wait 10 minutes, then replug in the cord to the outlet. Many of the modern electronic fridges/refrigerators reset themselves on a startup. If the fridge/refrigerator in still not working, call us for service.
Fridge or freezer won’t cool
POSSIBLE SOLUTION 1:
POSSIBLE SOLUTION 2:
Defrost your refrigerator if you see ice accumulating inside. Use the following procedure for defrosting.
Not many people realise this but by the time you have noticed your fridge or freezer is defrosting you have lost the food in it! So make the most of it and throw a party or have a slap-up meal, you may as well or the food is going to the bin!
Food, when frozen, has to be maintained at -18˚C or thereabouts but this has to be the average temperature. If the food starts to go soft this means that the temperature has risen above this. Now, without getting too technical, when food is stored it degrades slowly by bacteria breeding and eating it away, that’s why food goes off. But it all degrades sooner or later and the purpose of refrigeration is to slow that degradation down so as to make it as slow as possible and, when frozen, this is critical for hygiene. Once the food temperature rises and it starts to degrade then this degradation cannot be undone and also why once defrosted it cannot be re-frozen, unless it was fresh and is cooked first then re-frozen as this kills the bacteria. This is also why food cannot be kept forever in a freezer and it will eventually go off.
Principles of domestic fridges, freezers, and small commercial refrigeration units
The fridge/refrigerator is a fairly simple appliance and many small problems can be tackled by anyone with basic handyman skills. However, the presence of (in most cases, toxic) coolant under pressure and the sensitivity of the system itself mean that certain situations cry out for a more experienced hand.
