A refrigerator is an essential and one of the most used kitchen appliances, making it susceptible to frequent breakdowns. Your refrigerator provides you with ample space to store fresh supplies and frozen food items, offering you the ingredients to prepare special meals for special occasions. One thing about home appliances is that they fail you when you need them the most, and having refrigerator repair is a must. 

For example, your fridge may decide to take a rest on the day you load it up in preparation for a special occasion. Well, it does not essentially decide to rest, but the fresh load forces your refrigerator to work extra hard to maintain a low temperature, and that is when everything goes south.

At Big City HVAC & Appliance Repair, we have known this for a long time, and that is why we emphasize the importance of proper refrigerator repair and maintenance.

We offer the best home appliance repair services in San Diego County. We will repair and maintain your refrigerator in top working condition to ensure your special occasions go smoothly. Contact us on (619)541-8118 or book a fridge repair service online.

Common Refrigerator Problems We Fix

Our technicians are well trained and licensed to repair all types of refrigerator problems. Some of the most common refrigerator problems we repair include:

1.   Refrigerator Runs Constantly

If your refrigerator cycles or runs constantly, it may require an expert's attention. The most common problem with a continuously running fridge is dirty condenser coils. The fridge is less efficient and consumes more power, leading to higher utility bills.

Sometimes you may have set the fridge's temperature so low that it has to keep running to maintain the required temperature. Check that you have set the temperature correctly before calling your refrigerator repair provider.

2.   Refrigerator Not Cooling

Another common refrigerator failure is not cooling to the required temperatures. Condenser coils that do not dissipate heat adequately may cause your fridge not to cool. The fridge's condenser and evaporator fans may also need replacement. Contact a refrigerator repair technician to get it fixed. 

3.   The Refrigerator is Leaking

Blocked drains or a clogged water supply line may cause leakage. Unblocking the drains or unclogging the supply line can fix the fridge.

4.   The Refrigerator is Too Loud

If you notice that your refrigerator has become louder than usual, it indicates a problem that needs refrigerator repair. Most often, the worn-out evaporator or condenser fan blades need replacing. Loose refrigerator parts may also obstruct the fan blades, causing the noise.

5.   Ice Maker is Not Working

You may discover that your ice maker is not producing as much ice as it used to produce before. Check to confirm that the freezer temperature is set correctly. You should set it to between zero and five degrees Fahrenheit.

If the temperature is set correctly and the ice maker won't work, call a refrigerator appliance repair technician to examine your fridge.

6.   Food Freezing in the Fridge

When food freezes, it indicates very low temperatures inside the fridge. A broken thermostat or a damaged control board are the leading causes of very low refrigerator temperatures. Contact immediately a fridge repair company to prevent serious problems.  

7.   Water Dispenser Not Working

Modern fridges come with an in-built water dispenser. If your dispenser stops working, the water tube is frozen or blocked. You can try thawing the water tube and check that the freezer temperature is set correctly. Contact a freezer repair service provider if this does not solve the problem.

Alex came out as promised when promised and made the repair on our icemaker. I appreciate his prompt and professional service.

June 14, 2022

I walked into a very wet kitchen floor this morning and quickly determined our refrigerator was leaking. I reached out to Big City via Yelp and within 10 min heard back from Val. We discussed a window of time we might meet later today and boom! the technician (Alex T) not only showed up on time but a bit early. He quickly went to work and the problem was solved within 90 minutes. Very efficient & fairly priced

June 9, 2022

I contacted them through Yelp at 9pm and they were the first to respond. Set up an appointment for 10-1 the next day and the technician arrived at 11am. His name was Ozzy and he was very nice, clean-cut, and respectful. Took about 40 minutes to diagnose the problem, get the part from his car, and get the oven working again.

My dishwasher has been a stinky nightmare these last few months. The water wasn’t draining, just sitting causing a disgusting smell at least once a week. I finally decided enough was enough and reached out to some appliance companies in my area of San Diego. This company responded quickly and their price estimate was fair. I was able to get s next day appointment at noon. Highly recommend!

May 26, 2022

This company was referred to me by my home warranty carrier. Leo was out the same day to repair my washer that was leaking. Badabing badaboom – fixed!! Professional – clean – knowledgable – great service!! Thank you Leo!!

Nick was amazing! He was polite, professional, knowledgeable, and fixed my dryer issue in the one visit which I did not expect! He also gave me some tips and some guidance about keeping my dryer in good shape with proper use. I would highly recommend working with them! Thank you, Nick:)!!

I have a 10 year old Kitchenaid Stove that the broiler quit working. Mark from Big City came out and new right away what was wrong. He had the correct parts with him and fixed it quickly. He was very polite, clean and tidy. Would use them again for any appliance repair.

November 3, 2021

Great job! My washer wouldn’t agitate or spin and it had been previously fixed by Best Buy when it was under warranty for the same issue. This time it is fixed and so quiet! I feel like Big City made it better than when a Best Buy fixed it! Thanks to the tech who came this am!! Happily not going to the laundry mat anymore!

November 3, 2021

Both our washer and dryer needed repair at around the same time, so we tried Yelp to get a quote.  It was a Sunday morning and we were pleased that Big City responded within minutes, offering to send a technician to do a diagnostic the same afternoon at a very reasonable price.  Vlad arrived on time and spent an hour with us, thoroughly going over each appliance.

February 27, 2021

Surprised to see a GE range microwave die after a year of home ownership.  Since it matched the other kitchen appliances I figured I’d give repair service a try to avoid having to buy a more expensive non-matching unit. To my further surprise Big City Appliace Repair came out to pull the unit & repaired same day for a low flat fee.  Service tech Mark was professional courteous and fast.  I’d use this team again!  Good luck

February 1, 2021

Very satisfied with their services and customer service! Val didn’t take too long to figure out what the problem was with my 20 y/o fridge. He’s is super knowledgeable! Excellent service. Very professional, did a great job at fixing our stove. The serviceman was awesome!

Frequently Asked Questions

What Does Refrigerator Repair Service Include?

Our fridge repair services include diagnosing your appliance to establish the problem, followed by the corresponding repairs and necessary part replacement. You will also enjoy free appliance maintenance advice from our technicians.

How Much Does it Cost to Repair a Refrigerator?

The average cost of repairing a refrigerator is $ 250, but repair costs may differ depending on your refrigerator’s problem. A small problem like replacing a drip pan may cost you around $50, while replacing a compressor will set you back several hundred dollars.

What Causes Some Fridge Repairs to be Expensive?

The cost of replacement parts contributes to the total fridge repair cost. Some refrigerator brands such as Whirpool and Kenmore allow generic replacement parts that are cheap and readily affordable.
Other brands like Liebherr only work with proprietary parts. Such replacement parts come straight from the manufacturer, and you must pay a premium price for them. For example, a brand-name control board will cost up to $800.

Is it Worth Having a Refrigerator Repaired?

There is a simple way to tell if it is worth repairing your broken fridge. If it is less than ten years old and the repair cost is less than half the cost of a new fridge, it may be cheaper to repair. It is worth repairing a fridge that is less than five years old because it still has more years of service.
Repairing an old fridge may not be worth it because older appliances tend to break down more frequently, leading to higher maintenance costs. It is better to buy a newer model with the latest refrigeration technology and better energy efficiency.

How Long Do Fridge Repairs Take?

On average, it takes two to four hours to repair a fridge depending on the problem. Some problems are fixable in under an hour.
Refrigerator repair is one of the many unexpected household expenses you may face. Being prepared helps cushion you from the hassle of finding a reliable technician and covering the repair costs. Contact Big City HAVC & Appliance Repair today to schedule home appliance services.
