True is a leading manufacturer of refrigerators and cooling systems in the U.S. Their appliances are standard features in many hotels, cafes, and restaurants. However, refrigeration systems usually develop electro-mechanical problems with time like any other appliance. Fortunately, our technicians at Lerman Appliances offer reliable True repair in Pasadena. We know some of the common problems with True appliances and can help you troubleshoot them. We also offer guides with simple explanations and the best refrigerator repair.
A common problem with True refrigeration is a door that won’t shut. Broken gaskets most likely cause this. A refrigerator door that won’t seal shut can cause temperature fluctuations inside the refrigerator, affecting the freshness of its content, including foods and beverages.
It is essential to find the appliance’s serial and model number. These details will help you find the right gasket for your refrigerator.
Leveling may also cause your refrigerator door to stop shutting correctly. Placing your refrigerator on an uneven surface may cause its doors to fail to seal shut. To correct this problem, place a level on top of the unit to determine the unevenness of the surface where your refrigerator stands.
To level your refrigerator, loosen the caster bolts on the sides to be raised and insert shims to adjust the refrigerator height. However, do not insert more than three shims on any side.
Condenser Coil Dirt
A refrigerator contains a condenser that may accumulate dust with time. Excessive dust and dirt in the condenser coil may cause it to overheat. In addition, the dust and dirt accumulation may cause other refrigerator components to malfunction. Clean out the condenser coil to resolve this problem. This cleanup should be done at least once every three months. Cleaning and repairing the condenser coil requires professional help from a True appliance repairman. A damaged coil may require replacement. In addition, crushed or damaged fins may have to be straightened by an experienced technician from a Pasadena appliance repair company.
The primary function of a refrigerator’s evaporator coil is to cool the unit’s interior by creating a barrier to prevent heat transfer. However, the evaporator coil may experience excessive ice buildup causing it to freeze. The signs of a frozen evaporator coil include:
- A ticking sound inside the refrigerator
- Water puddles under the refrigerator unit
- Hot refrigerator cabinet
A frozen refrigerator coil common cause is a cracked or split refrigerator door gasket. However, other factors may also cause the refrigerator coil to freeze over, including setting the thermostat too low and blocking airflow near the refrigerator vents.
Refrigerator Does Not Get Cold
This is a common problem of True refrigerators. In this case, the refrigerator does not get cold. Instead, it only releases warm air. This problem may be caused by a leaking or malfunctioning compressor, evaporator fan failure, or overheating compressor.
