At Wilshire Refrigeration & Appliance, our technicians specialize in Sub-Zero repair in Santa Monica. A refrigerator is a major investment and precise repairs can save you thousands of dollars in replacement costs. You can preserve the motor by keeping the door closed as much as possible, but refrigerator motors do wear out. The motor might be failing if your refrigerator isn’t cooling properly. If it is not cooling, the thermostat, vents, or coils may be defective, which a repair technician can easily fix. Thermostat, thermistor, and control board problems may cause items to freeze, but replacing these parts can restore performance.
Your freezer should keep things frozen, but mechanical problems and age may cause it to be too cold. Frost buildup is a sign you need appliance repair in Santa Monica. You might need a new defrost sensor; call for a technician if you hear sizzling or gurgling sounds while the appliance is defrosting, or there are whirring or swishing sounds from the fan. If the freezer is leaking, the water line connections or shutoff valve might need to be replaced. When your freezer isn’t running, repairs to the electronic controls may be necessary. If it’s running too warm, the defrost thermostat may be the culprit.
