ISSUES INVOLVED IN REPAIR AND TROUBLESHOOTING
THERE’S A LOUD NOISE COMING FROM THE FREEZER
If there’s a loud clicking coming from your freezer, even though it came on, either the compressor or start relay is having issues. It’s easy to identify the clicking sound, seeing as the normal noise a freezer makes is a low humming one.
The start relay as above mentioned powers the compressor. You’ll need to get a new one when it’s not supplying power regularly or it has burnt out. Install a new evaporator fan if the issue continues and you’ll need to get a new compressor mounts if it is frayed.
IT’S EITHER THE FREEZER IS VERY COLD WHEN ITS RUNNING OR IT’S NOT RUNNING AT ALL
If your freezer is not coming on even though it is connected to the socket, it is due to an interrupted power supply. Check if the breaker has tripped or the fuse has blown, contact us if this does not fix the issue. The condenser coils might have debris blocking it, the vent’s airflow might be restricted or there might be a problem with the evaporator fan if your freezer is not cooling well. We can fix any of this problems.
THERE’S A LEAKAGE IN THE FREEZER
There might be some damages to the water inlet valve if there’s water coming out of the freezer or inside it. If that’s not the issue, check the drain tube if it is clogged.
