How do I know my fridge needs servicing or repair?

Not sure if you need refrigerator repairs at your Brisbane property? Here are some pointers.

What signs of a fridge breakdown should I look out for?

Some signs that your fridge could break down include strange noises, spoiled food, torn seals or gaskets, leaks, fridge failing to make ice, or using too much power.

Why is my fridge making dripping or leaking sounds?

This can sometimes be normal, just because of the defrost water dripping into your fridge pan. However, if there is a large amount of water or noise, call our team to investigate further.

Why is my freezer frosty?

Your freezer can get frosty if the coils have come into contact with too much moisture.  This can lead to foul smells and ineffective sealing, so make sure to call our team if you notice excessive frost.

How much will it cost to repair my fridge?

National Appliance Repairs strive to keep our prices low – it’s best to get in touch with us directly to discuss pricing.

Why should I repair my fridge instead of replacing it?

Frequently asked questions.

The decision to repair a refrigerator depends on several factors. Firstly, consider the age and overall condition of the fridge. If it’s relatively new and the repair cost is reasonable, fixing it can be a cost-effective choice. However, for older fridges with frequent issues or expensive repairs, investing in a new one may be more economical in the long run. The extent of the damage plays a crucial role; if it’s a minor issue like a faulty thermostat or a damaged seal, repair might be worthwhile.

The average life expectancy of a refrigerator typically ranges between 10 to 15 years. However, the actual lifespan can vary depending on factors such as brand, model, usage, and the quality of maintenance. High-quality refrigerators from reputable manufacturers may last longer, while lower-end models may have a shorter lifespan. Regular maintenance, such as cleaning the condenser coils, checking and replacing seals, and addressing issues promptly, can help extend the life of your refrigerator.

Testing a refrigerator compressor typically requires a multimeter. Here’s a basic overview of the process:

  1. Unplug the Refrigerator: Ensure that the refrigerator is disconnected from the power supply to avoid any electrical hazards.

  2. Locate the Compressor: The compressor is a cylindrical component usually found at the back of the refrigerator, near the bottom. It’s responsible for compressing refrigerant gas.

  3. Access the Compressor Terminals: Remove any covering or access panel to reveal the compressor terminals.

  4. Set the Multimeter: If you’re using a multimeter, set it to the resistance (ohms) setting. If you have a compressor tester, follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

  5. Test the Start and Run Windings: Use the multimeter probes to test the resistance between the compressor’s start and run terminals. You should get a reading between 2 to 5 ohms, but this can vary depending on the compressor’s specifications. Refer to your refrigerator’s manual or the compressor’s label for specific resistance values.

  6. Check for Ground: Test for continuity between each compressor terminal and the compressor housing or ground. There should be no continuity; otherwise, it indicates a ground fault.

 

If your compressor fails these tests, it’s likely faulty and needs replacement. However, compressor testing can be complex, and it’s best left to professional technicians for accurate diagnosis and repair. That’s where National Appliance Repairs comes into play. Our experienced, certified technicians are equipped to diagnose and repair your refrigerator swiftly and reliably, getting your appliance back to optimal functionality in no time.

The time it takes to repair a refrigerator can vary widely depending on the nature of the problem, the availability of replacement parts, and the skill of the technician. Minor repairs, such as fixing a faulty thermostat or replacing a damaged seal, can often be completed in a single visit, taking a few hours.

However, more complex issues, like compressor replacement or refrigerant recharge, may require multiple visits and could extend the repair process to a few days or even longer. 

Here’s a general guideline on repair timelines:

  • Initial Diagnostic Visit: Our qualified technicians will perform a comprehensive evaluation, usually within 24-48 hours of your service request.
  • Quotation and Approval: After diagnosing the problem, we provide you with an accurate quote. Once approved, we move ahead with the repair process.
  • Repair Time: As mentioned, minor repairs often take under an hour, while more complex issues may take longer.
  • Parts Availability: In cases where replacement parts are needed, the timeframe can also depend on the availability of these components. We stock a wide range of high-quality spare parts for various stove makes and models, aiming to complete most repairs in a single visit.
  • Quality Checks: Before concluding any repair, we undertake rigorous quality checks to ensure that the stove is operating safely and efficiently.

If you suspect that your refrigerator’s fuse may be blown, here’s how you can check:

  1. Unplug the Refrigerator: Ensure that the refrigerator is disconnected from the power supply.
  2. Locate the Fuse: The fuse is typically located near the compressor or on the main control board. Refer to your refrigerator’s manual for the exact location.
  3. Inspect the Fuse: Visually inspect the fuse for any signs of damage, such as a broken filament or discolouration. A blown fuse may have a visibly broken wire inside.
  4. Test for Continuity: If you’re unsure about the fuse’s condition, use a multimeter set to the continuity or resistance (ohms) setting. Place one probe on each end of the fuse and check for continuity. If the multimeter beeps or shows a very low resistance reading, the fuse is intact. If there’s no continuity (no beep or a very high resistance reading), the fuse is likely blown and needs replacement.

Always replace the fuse with one of the same type and rating to ensure safety and proper operation. If the fuse keeps blowing or if you’re uncertain about any aspect of the procedure, it’s best to consult the friendly professionals at National Appliance Repairs.

Several factors can cause a refrigerator to stop working:

  1. Power Issues: Ensure that the refrigerator is properly plugged in and that the power outlet is functioning. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses.
  2. Thermostat or Control Issues: A faulty thermostat, control board, or sensor can disrupt the refrigerator’s cooling cycle.
  3. Compressor Problems: The compressor is essential for cooling, and issues with it, such as a malfunction or failure, can lead to a lack of cooling.
  4. Blocked Condenser Coils: Dirty or blocked condenser coils can restrict heat dissipation and affect cooling.
  5. Faulty Defrost System: Problems with the defrost timer, thermostat, or heater can lead to excessive frost buildup in the freezer, affecting cooling.
  6. Refrigerant Leaks: Low refrigerant levels due to leaks can impede the cooling process.
  7. Damaged Seals or Gaskets: Worn or damaged door seals can allow warm air to enter the refrigerator, affecting cooling efficiency.
  8. Clogged Drain or Evaporator Fan Issues: Issues with the drain line or evaporator fan can cause problems with temperature regulation.
  9. Faulty Start Relay or Overload: These components can fail and prevent the compressor from starting.


Refrigerator issues can be complex, and an expert can pinpoint the exact problem and provide the necessary repairs. Contact National Appliance Repairs for assistance.

This issue may be due to one of the following reasons. 

  1. Blocked Airflow: There is a fan and duct system that circulates cold air from the freezer to the fridge compartment. If these vents are blocked by food items or ice buildup, it can restrict the flow of cold air into the refrigerator section.

  2. Faulty Evaporator Fan: The evaporator fan is responsible for circulating cold air within the fridge and freezer compartments. If it malfunctions, the freezer may still get cold, but the fridge won’t receive the necessary airflow.

  3. Thermostat or Control Issues: Problems with the thermostat or control board can disrupt the temperature regulation, affecting the fridge’s cooling.

  4. Damaged Seals: Damaged or worn door seals can allow warm air to enter the refrigerator, affecting its ability to cool properly.

  5. Refrigerant Issues: If there’s a refrigerant leak or a problem with the refrigerant system, it can lead to uneven cooling. To address this issue, start by checking for any visible obstructions in the vents or fan system. If everything appears clear, it’s advisable to consult a professional technician to diagnose and resolve the problem, as issues with the thermostat, control board, or refrigerant system may require expert attention. If you’re uncertain about any aspect of the procedure, it’s best to consult the friendly professionals at National Appliance Repairs.

When your fridge is cooling in the freezer but not the fridge compartment, it may indicate a common issue known as “dual evaporator” or “twin cooling” system malfunction. In this type of refrigerator, there are separate evaporators and fans for the freezer and fridge compartments. Here are some potential reasons for this problem:

Blocked Airflow: Similar to the previous scenario, blocked airflow due to food items or ice buildup can restrict the cold air from flowing into the fridge compartment.

Defective Evaporator Fan: If the evaporator fan that circulates cold air into the fridge section is not working correctly, it can lead to uneven cooling.

Faulty Damper Control: The damper control is responsible for regulating the airflow between the freezer and fridge compartments. If it’s malfunctioning or stuck closed, the fridge won’t receive sufficient cold air.

Control Board Issues: Problems with the control board that governs the dual evaporator system can affect the balance between the two compartments.

To address this issue, start by checking for any visible obstructions in the vents or fan system. If that doesn’t resolve the problem, it’s advisable to consult a professional technician, as diagnosing and repairing dual evaporator systems can be complex and may require expertise.

If you’re uncertain about any aspect of the procedure, it’s best to consult the friendly professionals at National Appliance Repairs.

Tripping of the safety circuit breaker when you turn on your fridge from the main power supply can be a safety measure to prevent electrical hazards. Several factors can lead to this issue:

Electrical Overload: If the fridge draws too much current when starting, it can overload the circuit and trigger the breaker to trip. This can occur if there are other high-power appliances on the same circuit.

Faulty Wiring: Damaged or worn electrical wiring can lead to short circuits, which may cause the circuit breaker to trip when the fridge is turned on.

Compressor Issues: Problems with the refrigerator’s compressor or motor can lead to increased power consumption during startup, potentially causing the breaker to trip.

To address this problem, you should ensure that the fridge is the only high-power appliance on the circuit when you turn it on. Check the condition of the electrical wiring and connections to identify any damage or loose connections. If you find any issues, consult an electrician for repairs. If the problem persists after these checks, consult a professional technician to diagnose any potential refrigerator issues that may be causing the electrical overload.  Contact National Appliance Repairs for assistance.
