Refrigerator Frequently Asked Questions
It Is Fixed Appliance Repair is here to answer all your refrigerator service needs.
Here are some common questions from our customers:
What is the Average Cost of Refrigerator Repair?
Without first diagnosing the issue, we can’t guarantee a price for refrigerator repair services. We can guarantee. It Is Fixed Appliance Repair does guarantee quality work and competitive prices. Most refrigerator repairs can be completed within two hours, and the average cost of repair with parts and labor is between $100 to $400.
Is Refrigerator Repair Worthwhile?
Sometimes it is more affordable to replace rather than repair a refrigerator. Consumer Reports recommends replacing any appliance if the cost for appliance repair is more than half the cost of buying a newer model. That’s why It Is Fixed Appliance Repair offers an upfront, commitment-free service estimate before completing any repairs so you can make an informed decision on which route is best for your budget.
We try hard to keep our costs low. The following factors can influence the cost of a repair:
Age of the Refrigerator –The lifespan of the average refrigerator is eleven to fifteen years. Depending on the brand, usage, and maintenance, some refrigerators can last up to twenty years! Unfortunately, replacement parts for older model refrigerators are more expensive. Units over fifteen years old are more likely to need replacement
If your refrigerator is less than eight years old or has a warranty or service plan, a professional refrigerator repair service can save you a lot of money.
Brand – Just like most appliances and devices, some brands carry a higher repair cost than others. To help reduce additional costs, such as shipping, we carry parts for major brands in our appliance center. Check out the list of refrigerator brands we service for more information.
Energy Efficiency – Refrigerators can be costly regarding energy use. According to Energy Star, “more than 60 million refrigerators are over ten years old, costing consumers $4.4 billion a year in energy costs.”
If your unit is over fifteen years old, a new, energy-efficient refrigerator could pay for itself over time in energy savings. Also, buying a new fridge before your old one goes out can save time, stress, and money.
If you are uncertain which option is best, an appliance repair company like It Is Fixed can offer a written estimate for refrigerator repair service to give you the opportunity to compare the cost of fixing the unit against the cost of replacement.
Can I Put a Refrigerator in My Garage?
Yes. Refrigerators do not require a high-voltage power outlet and can plug into a standard wall outlet. However, the extreme temperature shifts common in Georgia and the Atlanta area may cause problems with the appliance. Most refrigerators are designed to work in a temperature range that is comfortable to humans. Your refrigerator may stop working in temperatures above 110° F (110° C) or below 39° F (4° C). Check your owner’s manual for installation instructions to be sure.
If you already have a refrigerator in your garage, our guide for how to protect your appliances in the extreme cold may help you.
What Temperature Setting Should I Use With My Refrigerator?
Based on FDA recommendations, your refrigerator should be set to 40° F (4° C) or lower. The freezer compartment should be set to 0° F (-18° C) or lower. We recommend using a thermometer in your refrigerator to ensure the unit is operating at the ideal temperature.
How Much Clearance Do I Need Around My Refrigerator?
For optimal performance, keep at least one inch of space around the refrigerator on all sides. This includes the area above the refrigerator. Your freezer and refrigerator will operate more efficiently with proper airflow. Check out our refrigerator maintenance guide for more handy tips.
Where Can I Find A Replacement Manual for My Refrigerator?
Appliance manuals are as easy to lose as they are important to keep. Whenever you have a question about your model, the manual is usually the best place to look first. Our customers can usually find a digital copy of their manual at Manuals Online or Manual Owl.
