Signs That It Is Time for a New Refrigerator

Your fridge is one of the most important things in your home. It’s what keeps your family’s food fresh and safe to eat. It’s hard to imagine life without one. Thankfully, advances in modern technology have made these appliances extremely energy efficient, and extended their lives by many years. Still, nothing lasts forever, and there may come a time when you need to say goodbye to your current unit. These signs will let you know that it is time for a new refrigerator.


Extremely hot motor

Like any other machine of its kind, a fridge is going to need a motor. Just like your car, when the motor is working too much, it is going to get really hot. It is normal to feel some heat at all times, but if it is extremely hot to the touch, then this is a sign that the motor is over-exerting itself. This could lead to disaster. You should have a technician come out and inspect your coils immediately. At this point, buying a new one is probably more cost-effective than continuing to repair the fridge.


It doesn’t keep food fresh

This one should be obvious, but many people are quick to blame the food first. They think that there was something wrong with the food that they bought or the supplier, when in reality it is their appliance that isn’t doing its job. Your fridge was meant to keep food fresh, and if you are noticing routine instances of spoiled food, then you should have it inspected, and be prepared for the bad news.


Unnatural noises

We all are aware of that humming sound that fridges make during the night. When your machine starts to rumble too loudly, or make screeching or other noises, then this is not normal. Something is wrong inside the machine, or the motor is busted. Either way, give us a call. Don’t let it go forever.Some signs that your refrigerator is malfunctioning are not so obvious, while others are right in your face. We know how attached we can get to our fridges, and that at time it can be difficult to let them go, but it’s important to remember that the longer you keep letting it go, the worse that it is going to get, and the more money it is going to cost you in the end.
