When To Call a Refrigeration Technician

You go to grab an apple from the bottom drawer of your refrigerator when you notice a pool of water directly in front of the appliance. When you open the door, you’re not greeted by a blast of cold air; in fact, your refrigerator is… warm? When your refrigerator isn’t working properly, you need to act fast in order to prevent the food inside from spoiling. So how do you know when to call an Orlando refrigeration technician?


It Stops Working

If your refrigerator suddenly stops working, meaning it isn’t running at all, the first thing you need to do is to check whether or not the unit is plugged in properly. If the unit is plugged in or if the plug looks frayed or damaged, call a professional immediately. 

It’s Making Odd Noises

There are some noises that you want to hear coming from your refrigerator. The sound of the ice machine, for example. But if your refrigerator begins to suddenly make a noise that sounds out of place, your best bet is to call in a technician to take a look. Out of places noises include:

  • Banging
  • Clicking
  • Clunking
  • Screeching


It’s Not Cold

Your refrigerator’s main job is to keep things cold. If you notice your refrigerator is running warmer than normal, double-check the dial inside. These dials are typically very easy to bump when putting away groceries. Try lowering the temperature a few notches, and check the refrigerator again in a few hours. If changing the temperature didn’t help cool the refrigerator back down, it’s time to call a repairman.

It’s Leaking

A puddle of water in front of your refrigerator is never a good sign. Double-check that the refrigerator door was properly closed. If it wasn’t, close the door and mop up the mess. The puddle was most likely a result of the refrigerator being left open. However, if the door was sealed, a puddle could indicate a clogged defrost drain, a problem only a technician can fix.
