Faulty burners that won’t turn on

Things get very stressful in the kitchen when the stove burner won’t heat. The pressure is on to get the food ready on time and your stove doesn’t want to cooperate. This is a scary scenario that you should avoid at all times.

Luckily, there are things you can do to avoid this dilemma. Having routine service done for your kitchen stove is a primary and most effective way to ensure that it’s working 100%.

It’s also important to know the main causes of why a stove burner won’t heat. This way you can readily apply proper solutions.



Temperature regulation issues

One thing you probably dislike in cooking is when a stove can’t maintain temperature. This problem can easily mess with your cooking time. It also affects the outcome of your dish. You may end up with raw, tough meat.

You can avoid this hassle by regularly checking on the condition of your stove. Qualified technicians know what to inspect so consider scheduling them for regular visits.



Faulty induction elements

If you find yourself searching for ‘can’t adjust heat on stove’ you have a legitimate problem. Burners that won’t heat to and stay at the temperature you need make cooking almost anything impossible. Basically this renders the stove un-usable.

Before you haul the offending appliance off to the land fill and resign yourself to the expense of a new stove, there are some common issues that you can check for. Because this issue involves electricity safety should be first on your mind.



Stove glass cracked

Sometimes something falls or drops onto your glass top stove and cracks the glass, and other times the glass can crack from other factors. This can be a very irritating issue. However, it can also be an extremely dangerous issue.

NEVER
 use your stove if the glass top is cracked or shattered. Even the smallest cracks are dangerous and the stove should never be used as cracks increase your risk of being electrocuted.



Stove burners spark all the time

If you’re cooking dinner on your stove and notice the burner start to spark, that can startle you! And you’re probably thinking, “why is it doing that?!” Don’t worry though, our team of professional repairmen are here to help. If your stove burner is sparking, this is dangerous and can be a fire hazard, so it should be fixed right away.

Causes:

  • Loose connectors: as time goes on and you use your burners frequently, the connection can become loose. When the connection starts to loosen, it can cause high resistance, which can cause the wires to overheat and burn or arc, causing sparks.
  • Frayed wires: overtime the insulation on the wires that are connected to the burner may begin to fray. If the wires start to fray, they can cause arcing and sparks. You will need to replace these wires.
  • Damaged coil: Overtime, as you frequently use your burners, the coils can become damaged. If the coils have any cracks, bubbles, or blisters, this can cause sparking and you will have to replace your burner.
  • Defective element: if there doesn’t appear to be any damage or problems with your burner but it is sparking, it may be defective and needs to be replaced.



Stove knob won’t turn

Nothing is more frustrating than when your oven knob won’t turn and you have food to cook! However, the good news is that this problem is generally easy to fix!

If your oven knob is not turning, the problem is likely with the peg shaft or the knob cap. To begin fixing the issue, you need to take the knob handle off. To get the knob off, gently pull it off with your hand or ease it off with a butter knife.

Now that the knob is off, you can take a look at the peg shaft. When you are inspecting and fixing issues, always make sure to be careful, as if done incorrectly you can cause additional problems to your oven.

To inspect the peg shaft, you will notice a peg protruding from the cooker front. Take a pair of pliers and gently try to turn the peg to change the temperature. If the peg turns and works successfully, the issue is with the knob, which can easily be replaced. If the peg still does not move when you try to turn it, the peg has probably gotten stuck. You can simply add some WD40 to the peg and allow it to soak in. Then, try turning the peg again, if it still does not move, you will need to call a professional to help you fix the issue.



Range surface element won’t turn off

If you’re done cooking and the stove burner won’t turn off, it can be concerning and dangerous. Not only is it dangerous to your safety, but it can also be a fire hazard. You are going to need to fix this issue as soon as possible.

Causes:

  • Broken knob: if the knob on the stove is broken, it won’t be able to turn the temperature off. You can try removing the knob handle and manually turn the temperature off with a pair of pliers by turning the peg.
  • Electronic or control pad error: Sometimes the electronics or control pad in your stove encounter an error and the stove will not receive the message that it needs to turn off. Try unplugging the oven from the wall and waiting 60 seconds before plugging it back in to see if this resets the oven.
  • Faulty surface element: if the surface element shorts out, the burner may not be able to turn off. As well, if the electrical contacts have fused together, this will send constant voltage to the burner, meaning it will not be able to turn off and will need to be replaced.
  • Faulty surface element switch: the surface element switch indicates to the stove when it needs to turn off. If the switch shorts out, the stove won’t get the message to turn off.

Trouble maintaining temperature

The oven is a valuable and often taken-for-granted appliance. You turn the dial to the desired temperature, wait the standard 10 minutes for it to heat up and.. voila! You’re ready to create your culinary masterpiece. But what happens when that perfect temperature starts to drop? Worst-case scenario; you need a new stove. Best case scenario; the problem is a simple fix that you can do yourself.



Oven Failure to turn on

You’re trying to put dinner in the oven and it just won’t start? “Oh no!” you’re probably thinking. When your oven doesn’t turn on it can feel quite stressful and needs to be sorted as soon as possible.

It’s a good job there are some troubleshooting steps you can take to try and fix your oven. Looking after your oven can have a range of long-lasting benefits to make your life easier.



Oven door does not close properly

If your oven door does not close properly, the heat will escape from your oven. This can lead to cooking times that are all off and uneven baking. You could even burn yourself from the heat leaking from the door. This is definitely an issue that needs a swift repair.

This is where we can help. Regular maintenance on your oven can help stop issues from cropping up and extend the life of your oven.



Oven self cleaning problem

Running the self cleaning cycle on your oven has the possibility of causing issues to it. As well, there could be an issue with your oven that is preventing your self cleaning cycle from working. These issues can be extremely frustrating to deal with. But don’t worry, our team has all the experience needed to repair any oven issues!

Causes:

  • Door latch switch: If something is wrong with your door latch switch, the oven cleaning cycle will not begin. The door switch allows the oven door to lock, and the cycle will only run if the door is able to lock.
  • Door lock motor and switch assembly: as mentioned above, the door switch allows the oven door to lock, and the cleaning cycle will only run if the door is locked. The switch is what activates the door lock motor to keep the oven door locked during the self cleaning cycle. If the door lock motor and switch assembly is faulty, the door will remain locked after the cleaning cycle is over and you will not be able to open the door.
  • Temperature control thermostat: this thermostat is what regulates the temperature of the oven. If the temperature control thermostat is faulty, it may not work during the self cleaning process. It is possible for this thermostat to work correctly during backing cycles but not for the cleaning cycle.
  • Thermal fuse: the job of the thermal fuse is to shut the power off to the oven when it gets too hot, to avoid overheating. It is possible for the thermal fuse to blow while the self cleaning cycle is running. If this happens, you will have to replace it.



Oven interior light not working

If your oven interior light is not working, it can be a pain. You’re constantly having to open the oven to see how your meal is coming along, which affects the time taken to cook and the quality of your food. Have you ever baked a cake while opening the oven door to check on it? The result is a pancake!

Getting regular maintenance carried out on your oven and other kitchen appliances can help prevent issues like this from cropping up. There are a few easy fixes that you too can try to sort out this frustrating issue.



Oven not heating properly

The oven is a valuable and often taken-for-granted appliance. You turn the dial to the desired temperature, wait the standard 10 minutes for it to heat up and.. voila! You’re ready to create your culinary masterpiece. But what happens when that perfect temperature starts to drop? Worst-case scenario; you need a new stove. Best case scenario; the problem is a simple fix that you can do yourself.



Oven doesn’t bake evenly

It can be incredibly frustrating when you need to bake something, but your oven is not baking it evenly! Chances are, you don’t know why your oven is causing your food to bake unevenly. Don’t worry, there are a few common causes to explain this, and our technicians are always here to help!

One reason may be that your oven is not calibrated correctly. If the oven is not level, it will not cook food evenly. If your oven calibration is off, you are going to want an expert technician to help you fix this problem.

Another reason your oven may not be baking evenly is because the heat is not distributed evenly. This can be caused by a dirty oven fan or a door that is not closing properly. Make sure to clean the oven fan and check the door seals to ensure that they are in good condition.

The issue could also be as simple as moving around your oven racks. If your food is burnt on top but undercooked at the bottom, then it may be time for a little more labour. You may need to lower the racks in order for it all to cook equally, and even rotate them as they’re cooking so there’s no uneven spots.



Oven broiler problem

If you are a person who uses their oven broiler, you may be upset when you start facing problems with it. There is no reason to worry when the team at Express Repair can help you with any broiler problem you may be facing.

Causes:

  • Burnt out broil element: when the broil element is working properly, it glows a bright red when heated up, and will not glow if it is not working. You are able to check for holes or blisters on the element that can help indicate if it has burnt out. You can use a multimeter to check for continuity on the broil element. If it does not have continuity, it has burnt out and will need to be replaced.
  • Temperature control thermostat: this thermostat regulates the temperature of the broiler. If the thermostat is no longer working, it will not be able to heat up the broiler element. When the thermostat malfunctions, you will need to replace it as it is not repairable.
  • Oven control board: The control board sends voltage to the bake and broil circuits when you need to use them. If the control board is faulty, it may not be able to send the voltage to the broil circuit. Before you replace the control board, make sure you have tested all other possibilities and causes of the broiler problem.

Best case scenario; the problem is a simple fix that you can do yourself.



Oven fan is not spinning

The oven fan not working correctly is a common, and sometimes noisy, problem that your oven can face. Our technicians are well experienced in solving all kinds of oven problems, so you can trust our team!

Causes:

  • Oven fan element is faulty: if you check your oven and feel it blowing cold air and the thermostat light is on, then the problem is likely with the fan element. If the fan element is damaged, it will not work correctly. You will need to get a technician to check this problem out for you.
  • Oven fan motor malfunction: if you notice that the oven fan sounds noisy or moves slow, the problem could be with the fan motor. For safety reasons, when it comes to inspecting the oven fan, you should always trust a reliable technician to inspect it instead of trying it yourself. To check if the motor is faulty, the technician will ensure the oven is off and unplugged. They will try to turn the fan blades by hand, and if they feel stiff then the problem is likely with the motor. They can also check to see if the fan blades need to be cleaned, as sometimes they get covered in gunk, and cleaning may solve the problem.
  • Wrong oven setting: if the fan and the heating are both not working on your oven, check to see which mode the oven has been set to. If it has been set to “auto” mode, this could be the problem. Simply change your oven back to the “manual” setting.



Oven hinges problem

If your oven door does not close properly, the heat will escape from your oven. This can lead to cooking times that are all off and uneven baking. You could even burn yourself from the heat leaking from the door. This is definitely an issue that needs a swift repair.

This is where we can help. Regular maintenance on your oven can help stop issues from cropping up and extend the life of your oven.



Oven temperature sensor failure

Sometimes our ovens start having issues and we’re not sure why. This can be incredibly frustrating, especially since ovens are such an important part of the kitchen and your everyday use!

If you’re having problems with your oven, one of the possibilities is the oven temperature sensor. Here are some common problems that are caused by an oven temperature sensor issue:

  • Longer cooking times than usual: if you are having to prolong your usual cooking time by 10 or 20 minutes, this can mean the temperature sensor isn’t gauging the proper temperature.
  • Undercooked food: if you take out your food when it should be perfectly cooked, but it is actually undercooked, the sensor may only be heating the oven to a fraction of the set temperature.
  • Unevenly cooked food: if you pull your food out of the oven and half of it is cooked or overcooked while the other half is still raw, chances are the temperature sensor needs to be replaced.
  • Oven overheating: The oven overheating is the most serious issue caused by a faulty temperature sensor. If you set the oven temperature to 350 degrees but it rapidly heats up to 450 degrees, this is a serious issue and you will want to get it fixed as soon as possible.



Oven knob won’t turn

Nothing is more frustrating than when your oven knob won’t turn and you have food to cook! However, the good news is that this problem is generally easy to fix!

If your oven knob is not turning, the problem is likely with the peg shaft or the knob cap. To begin fixing the issue, you need to take the knob handle off. To get the knob off, gently pull it off with your hand or ease it off with a butter knife.

Now that the knob is off, you can take a look at the peg shaft. When you are inspecting and fixing issues, always make sure to be careful, as if done incorrectly you can cause additional problems to your oven.

To inspect the peg shaft, you will notice a peg protruding from the cooker front. Take a pair of pliers and gently try to turn the peg to change the temperature. If the peg turns and works successfully, the issue is with the knob, which can easily be replaced. If the peg still does not move when you try to turn it, the peg has probably gotten stuck. You can simply add some WD40 to the peg and allow it to soak in. Then, try turning the peg again, if it still does not move, you will need to call a professional to help you fix the issue.



Oven won’t turn off

If you’re done cooking and your oven won’t turn off, this can seem like a big problem. When your oven doesn’t turn on it can feel quite stressful and needs to be sorted as soon as possible.

Causes:

  • Oven control board: the oven control board uses relays to send voltage to the bake and broil circuits. If one of these relay shorts is closed, continuous voltage may be delivered to the heating circuit. If the oven is turned off and still heats, it is likely a broken control board that needs to be replaced.
  • Bake and broil element: if one of the heating elements burns out, it can cause a short in the oven. If the heating element has shorted out, the oven will not turn off. You can check to see if there is any damage such as holes or blisters on the element that may indicate a short. If there is, you will need to replace the element. Similarly, the broil element can short out causing the same problem.



Oven fan keeps running

If the fan in your oven is still running after you have turned off your oven, there may be a problem. Our technicians have plenty of experience working on all sorts of oven problems and are available to help.

Causes:

  • Faulty temperature sensor: if the temperature sensor is faulty, it may think your oven is still hot, even if it is not. This means the fan will continue to run, even if the oven is cool.
  • Faulty control thermostat: the control thermostat regulates the temperature of the oven and starts the fan if the oven gets too hot. If the thermostat is faulty, it may turn the fan on even when it is not hot.
  • Faulty cooling fan thermostat: The cooling fan thermostat starts the fan when the oven gets hot. If the fan continues to operate after the oven has cooled down, the issue may be with this thermostat.

Common dishwasher issues



Dishwasher is leaking

“The dishwasher is leaking!” Not words anyone wants to hear. Hiring a repairman is expensive. A new dishwasher is even more costly. Of course, you could go back to doing the dishes by hand. But the situation may not be as dire as all that.

Before you call the repairman or resign yourself to dishpan hands, there are some things you can do. First of all, consider doing regular maintenance.



Dishes come out dirty

One cause of panic in the kitchen is when you have dishes come out of dishwasher dirty. It’s important that you can rely on your dishwasher to take care of dirty dishes for you.

For a busy person like you, a malfunctioning dishwasher means piles of unsightly and unsanitary soiled, sticky plates and cutlery you don’t have time or strength to deal with.

It’s a good thing that you can remedy this problem. What’s even better is that you avoid this type of problem by properly maintaining the condition of your dishwasher.



Dishwasher doesn’t dry dishes

Opening your dishwasher to find that the load is still wet is frustrating, to say the least. A range of things could be the cause of the problem, such as how you have loaded the contents, malfunctioning dishwasher parts, or a combination of both.



Dishwasher smells bad

It’s no good to wash your dishes when the dishwasher smells bad. The foul odor will transfer to your dishes and what good is that if you have a bad-smelling plate, glass, or spoon and fork? No one wants to use smelly dinnerware.



Dishwasher overflowing

When your dishwasher overflows, it hits you with an unpleasant double whammy. You’ve got to make time to deal with the mess. And you’ve got to figure out a repair. But don’t worry, Express Repair is here to help you with that repair! Here are a few causes of dishwasher overflow:

  • Dishwasher detergent: there are 2 causes from dishwasher detergent that could be causing the problem. The first one is that you have used too much detergent so the suds overflow onto the floor. The second one is that you are using inadequate detergent.
  • Door gasket is worn: if your door gasket is worn or damaged, this can cause water to leak out of the dishwasher.
  • Faulty water inlet valve: the inlet valve is what delivers the water to your dishwasher. If this inlet valve is not working correctly, it can cause the dishwasher to overflow.
  • Broken float assembly or switch: The float is what signals the float switch to turn the water off when it fills enough. If the float or the switch is not working, this will cause your dishwasher to overflow.



Dishwasher buttons don’t work

It can be very inconvenient when your dishwasher buttons are not working. This is a problem you’re going to want to fix so that you can get back to using your dishwasher as usual.

Usually the issue when it comes to the buttons malfunctioning is the touchpad. You can test out the touchpad by pressing some of the buttons – if some are working but some are not, then the problem is likely the touchpad. To solve this problem you have to replace the touchpad. Some companies sell touchpads separately, while others sell the touchpad and control panel together.
If you need help replacing the touchpad or assessing other problems with your dishwasher, our trained and experienced technicians can help you as soon as possible. Give us a call today and we will help you get your dishwasher back up and running as soon as possible!



Dishwasher is making strange noises

Dishwashers are notoriously known for making some noises such as sloshing of the water and whirring of the pump. However, loud and unusual sounds such as grinding, buzzing, and thumping could be a cause of concern. And, quite frankly, the noises are annoying.



Dishwasher doesn’t dispense soap

A dishwasher that doesn’t wash dishes is essentially useless. You have to put the load on for a second cycle or wash the dishes by hand. Commonly, the reason your dishes are not coming out sparkling clean is that your dishwasher doesn’t dispense soap.



Dishwasher doesn’t clean properly

One cause of panic in the kitchen is when you have dishes come out of dishwasher dirty. It’s important that you can rely on your dishwasher to take care of dirty dishes for you.

For a busy person like you, a malfunctioning dishwasher means piles of unsightly and unsanitary soiled, sticky plates and cutlery you don’t have time or strength to deal with.

It’s a good thing that you can remedy this problem. What’s even better is that you avoid this type of problem by properly maintaining the condition of your dishwasher.



Dishwasher lights flashing

When your dishwasher lights start flashing, it can be confusing. You’re probably thinking “why are the lights flashing?!” As well, when the lights are flashing, it usually means the dishwasher has stopped working, which is frustrating.

There are a few reasons why the dishwasher lights may be flashing:

  • Heating element isn’t heating water to proper temperature
  • Dishwasher door was opened during a cycle
  • There was a power interruption during a cycle
  • The door was unlatched while the machine was set for a delay start
  • The buttons were pressed too many times
  • Child lock function is on

Before looking into a repair, you can try resetting your dishwasher and see if that works.



Dishwasher is not turning off

When your dishwasher won’t stop running, it can be a waste of time, water, and electricity. When your dishwasher keeps running endlessly on a cycle, you’re going to want to get it fixed as soon as possible to save yourself on water and electricity bills!

Causes:

  • Faulty timer motor: the timer motor is what lets the dishwasher know when to start and stop a cycle. If the timer motor is faulty, it won’t be able to signal the stop of one cycle and the start of another, leaving your dishwasher running.
  • Faulty heating element: when there is a problem with the heating element, the cycle may not reach the correct temperature. If the cycle does not reach the correct temperature, the next cycle won’t be signaled to start, leaving the dishwasher to continue running in the current cycle.
  • Thermostat problems: if the thermostat is not working properly, it may not be able to accurately read the temperature of a cycle. When the thermostat can’t read the temperature correctly, the next cycle will not be signaled to begin, so it will continue to run endlessly in the current cycle.
  • Broken float assembly or switch: The float is what signals the float switch to turn the water off when it fills enough. If the float or the switch is not working, this will cause your dishwasher to overflow.



Dishwasher door not latch

If your dishwasher door won’t latch, that also means your dishwasher will not be able to run. In order to run a cycle, the door must be properly closed and latched. So, this can be a very frustrating issue.

This issue is commonly the result of broken or malfunctioning parts that will not allow the door to latch properly. In most cases, these parts are fairly simple to replace. These parts include:

  • Door latch: the door latch is the part on your dishwasher that latches closed to ensure that no water escapes from your dishwasher, and signals your dishwasher to let it know that it is safe to turn on. If the door latch is not activating when the door closes, there is likely an issue with the latch and it will need to be replaced.
  • Strike plate: the strike plate is the area where the door latch locks into. Sometimes the strike plate becomes misaligned, and will simply need to be readjusted into its proper position. If the plate is metal and has become rusty, or if it is plastic and has been damaged, it will need to be replaced.
  • Door hinge: the door hinges can become broken, loose, or rusty. Sometimes you can notice there is a problem with the hinges if your dishwasher door is crooked or squealing. If there is a problem with the hinges, they will need to be replaced.
  • Door springs: the springs are what allow the door to open and close without any problems. Sometimes a spring has popped out of place, or has become damaged, causing the door to not be able to close properly, and the latch will not lock.
  • Door gasket: the door gasket is what forms a watertight seal when the door is closed, ensuring that no water escapes. If the gasket is damaged or deformed, it can prevent the door from closing fully or the latch from being activated.



Dishwasher soap dispenser doesn’t work

A dishwasher that doesn’t wash dishes is essentially useless. You have to put the load on for a second cycle or wash the dishes by hand. Commonly, the reason your dishes are not coming out sparkling clean is that your dishwasher doesn’t dispense soap.



Dishwasher not getting water

One of the most frustrating issues your dishwasher can face is not filling up with water. How can you wash your dishes if the machine isn’t getting water? That’s why you’re going to want to get this issue fixed quickly.

Causes:

  • Float: the float rises while the dishwasher fills, and when it reaches a certain point it triggers sensors that stop the water. If the float has gotten stuck in the shut-off position, this will prevent water from entering the dishwasher.
  • Dirty valve screens: water passes through inlet valves in order to enter into the dishwasher. These inlet valves have screen filters, and if water is not getting through it could be that these screens are clogged with dirt and debris.
  • Water supply line: sometimes the problem isn’t even with the dishwasher itself; it can be with the water supply line. The water supply line could be kinked or damaged. Luckily, if the hose is kinked, you can solve the problem just by straightening it! If the hose is damaged you will have to replace it.
  • Door indicator: if there is a problem with the door indicator, the appliance won’t be able to tell if the door is closed properly. The dishwasher will not fill with water unless the door is properly closed.

If you open up your fridge and there is water pooling at the bottom, chances are the defrost drain is clogged. This should be a quick fix and it is very easy for you to take a look at yourself as well. You are going to want to fix this problem as soon as possible to avoid your food from spoiling.

Your drain hole may be clogged with debris. You can try cleaning the drain hole with a special stick for the job, or something like a cotton swab or straw.

There is also the possibility that the defrost drain is clogged with ice. To clear the drain of the ice, use a plumbing snake and push it as far into the drain hole as you can and move it up and down until the clog of ice has been cleared. After this, you should fill the drain with 1 teaspoon of baking soda and slowly pour in 2 cups of hot water. The drain should be able to work again.



REFRIGERATOR NOT DEFROSTING & REFRIGERATOR FREEZER COILS FROSTING UP

If you open up your fridge and notice ice and frost inside, chances are your fridge is not defrosting. When the inside of your fridge looks like winter has arrived, you’re going to want to get the issue fixed so your food does not freeze.

Causes:

  • Issue with defrost control board: Your fridge has a control board that directs when it needs to run the automatic defrost cycle. When there is an issue with the control board, the defrost cycle will not run.
  • Issue with defrost sensor and fuse: Your fridge comes with a defrost sensor system, and this system monitors the temperature of your evaporator. This part comes with a fuse that is used as a back up in the case of the sensor failing. If the sensor fails to shut off the defrost heater, the fuse will blow, and the heater will be forced to shut off. If this happens, your heater will no longer work and your fridge will not defrost.
  • Defrost timer not working: Your fridge comes with a defrost timer which turns on the defrost heater throughout the day. When the timer is not working, it may not send any power to the defrost heater, meaning the fridge will not defrost.
  • Defrost heater not working: The fridge has a defrost heater, which heats up to remove any frost. When the defrost heater is broken, your fridge is unable to defrost.



FRIDGE IS TOO LOUD

Suddenly noticing that your normally quiet fridge is too loud can cause alarm in even the most stoic of individuals. Loud or uncommon noises should be taken seriously.

However, there are some proactive things you can do yourself. Properly maintained and cared for, your fridge can be a useful asset to your household for many years.



REFRIGERANT FREON RECHARGE

If your fridge isn’t cooling properly, it could be because it needs a recharge of Freon. The only way your fridge would run out of Freon is if there is a leak in one of the components. There are a few ways to see if you’re out of Freon, or if there is a different issue.

The first thing to do is to locate your fridge’s condenser. Put your hand next to it to see if it is hot. If it feels cold and the refrigerator has been running, there is a chance that you need more Freon.

The next thing you can do is unplug the fridge, turn off the temperature control, and then put your ear up against the side of the fridge. If you hear hissing and gurgling sounds, that means there is Freon in the fridge and working. If you don’t hear anything, this is a sign that could indicate a lack of Freon.

The last thing you need to do is remove the cover from the evaporator. Plug your fridge back into power and turn the temperature control back on, then let the fridge run for a couple of minutes with the door closed. After a few minutes, check the evaporator. If there is no frost, this could mean you need more Freon.



FRIDGE IS TOO LOUD

Suddenly noticing that your normally quiet fridge is too loud can cause alarm in even the most stoic of individuals. Loud or uncommon noises should be taken seriously.



FRIDGE IS NOT WORKING AT ALL

We understand how big of a problem it is when your fridge won’t work at all. We rely on our fridges to keep all our food cold and safe to eat. So when your fridge isn’t working, it’s important to get it back up and running before it’s too late and your food spoils.

There is a range of reasons why your fridge might not be working, including:

  • Door is not sealing properly
  • Refrigerator has been unplugged
  • Thermostat not set properly
  • Clogged vents
  • Dust and debris on fridge coils
  • Dust and debris on the fan
  • Part breakdowns



FRIDGE FAN IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY

When the fan is not working properly in your fridge, the cold air is not circulating which can cause your food to spoil. If you notice your fridge isn’t cooling properly or that something is wrong with the fan, you are going to want to get it fixed ASAP.

Causes:

  • Fan is blocked: if the fan is blocked by something, it will not spin. When the fan doesn’t spin, the air will not circulate into the refrigerator cabin.
  • Broken Fan Motor: if the motor that spins the fan blades are broken, the entire fan will stop working.
  • Thermostat control issues: if the thermostat detects an issue with temperature, it can cause the fan to stop working.



ICE NOT COMING OUT OF ICE MAKER
Wanted some fresh ice cubes for your drink but no ice is coming out? When this happens, you should take the issue seriously as it can be a sign of a deeper problem with your fridge.
However, don’t start stressing out just yet as it’s quite a common problem with ice not coming out of ice maker. Since there are common problems, there are also common solutions which we’ll go into detail about later on in this article.


HOW TO STOP YOUR FRIDGE FROM FREEZING FOOD

Have you ever gone to get food from your fridge to discover it is frozen?
You then need to wait for your food to thaw before you can eat it, leaving vegetables soggy and food spoiled. While this does not happen often, it can be extremely frustrating to find your fridge is freezing food. If it was meant to be frozen, you’d have put it in the freezer!

FOOD GOES BAD WHEN THE FRIDGE DOOR DOESN’T CLOSE PROPERLY
If The Fridge Door Isn’t Closing Properly
Believe it or not, but a lot of fridge door issues can simply come down to something like a slightly open crisper drawer, or a shelf that has fallen out of alignment. A buildup of dirt and grime on your refrigerator door gaskets is another potential issue. If those gaskets are covered in filth and gunk, you won’t be able close them properly. Cleaning the gaskets with warm, soapy water and a cloth is something you can easily do on your own. Some people would even tell you to clean the gaskets twice!


WHY IS MY FRIDGE DOOR NOT STAYING CLOSED?

If there is one common issue with appliances, it is fridge doors not closing properly. The seal around your fridge door is what keeps the cold in. If the door stays open, this seal is broken and warm air will creep in and slowly spoil your food. Your fridge then goes into overdrive to try to keep temperatures down, making it noisy and raising the temperature even further. The overall result? Warm food and a loud, whirring appliance.



WHY IS MY FREEZER NOT COLD ENOUGH?

Unless you want melted ice cream and defrosted meat, a warm freezer is never a good thing. Your first thought will probably be that the door has been left ajar. However, if you go back later to find that your freezer’s contents are only getting warmer, there is probably a technical reason that your freezer is not cold enough.



FREEZER IS COLD BUT FRIDGE IS WARM

There is nothing more frustrating than when your freezer is working but your fridge is not cold enough! There are a couple reasons this could be happening, and you will want to fix the issue as soon as possible to avoid the contents of your fridge going bad!

Causes:

  • Overpacked freezer: if your freezer is overly packed, the vents that allow the cold air to flow to the refrigerator may be blocked. When these vents are blocked, the cold air can’t enter the fridge cabin and therefore it will not be cold enough.
  • Evaporator fan: the evaporator fan moves the cold air from the freezer into the evaporator, where that air is then pushed into the fridge to keep it cold. If there is a problem with the fan, the freezer will remain cold but the fridge will be warm.
  • Defrost system: if your defrost system is not working properly, frost and ice can build up in areas such as the vents or evaporator coils. When this happens, this can cause your freezer to remain cold but your fridge to feel too warm.



FREEZER INDICATOR LIGHT IS NOT WORKING

If your freezer indicator light is not working, don’t worry. The team at Express Repair can help you. There are 2 common reasons for the indicator light not working:

  • Indicator light has burned out: the main cause of the indicator light not working is that it has burned out. Simply replace the light to solve the problem, but check to see if there are any broken wires or detached connections to the indicator light first.
  • User control and display board are defective: if the light has not burned out, chances are that the user control and display board need to be replaced.

FRESH FOOD COMPARTMENT WARMING UP

Opening your fridge to prepare that fresh crispy salad and discovering wilted lettice and limp carrots is enough to send anyone’s imagination into overdrive. Are all my veggies spoiled because of the fresh food compartment warming up? How much does a repairman cost? Can I afford a new fridge right now?



BROKEN FREEZER

Has your freezer suddenly stopped freezing your food or liquids? We understand that this can be quite concerning as you really don’t want your food to expire because then it’s just wasted money.



WATER DISPENSER NOT WORKING

You want a drink of refreshing cold water poured straight from your water dispenser. You pick up your glass, put it under the nozzle, and… nothing. No water is gushing out and you’re left without an ice-cold refreshment.



FRIDGE LEAKING WATER

The sight of a puddle under your fridge is enough to make anyone worry, and rightfully so. Your fridge is one of the most important appliances. Without it, you will not be able to keep your food fresh and safe for consumption. This is all the more reason to take action as soon as you notice water dripping or pooling under your fridge.

ICE MAKER OVERFLOWING

Having an overflowing ice maker can mean one of two things. Either your ice maker is producing normal size ice cubes but in excess, or there is an overflow of water into your ice maker so that there is now a large chunk of ice at the base. Honestly, neither problem is ideal.

However, you’ll be pleased to hear that both are an easy fix. To stop problems like this occurring again in the future, we recommend regular maintenance on your kitchen appliances.

ICE BUILD-UP IN FREEZER

Freezers are supposed to be cold, but a build-up of ice in your freezer is not wanted. It can mean all the contents are covered in a layer of frost, which can damage the food. It can also cause your freezer to malfunction as the freezer cannot regulate its temperature if vents are covered over in a layer of ice.

Faulty burners that won’t turn on

Things get very stressful in the kitchen when the stove burner won’t heat. The pressure is on to get the food ready on time and your stove doesn’t want to cooperate. This is a scary scenario that you should avoid at all times.

Luckily, there are things you can do to avoid this dilemma. Having routine service done for your kitchen stove is a primary and most effective way to ensure that it’s working 100%.

It’s also important to know the main causes of why a stove burner won’t heat. This way you can readily apply proper solutions.



Temperature regulation issues

One thing you probably dislike in cooking is when a stove can’t maintain temperature. This problem can easily mess with your cooking time. It also affects the outcome of your dish. You may end up with raw, tough meat.

You can avoid this hassle by regularly checking on the condition of your stove. Qualified technicians know what to inspect so consider scheduling them for regular visits.



Faulty induction elements

If you find yourself searching for ‘can’t adjust heat on stove’ you have a legitimate problem. Burners that won’t heat to and stay at the temperature you need make cooking almost anything impossible. Basically this renders the stove un-usable.

Before you haul the offending appliance off to the land fill and resign yourself to the expense of a new stove, there are some common issues that you can check for. Because this issue involves electricity safety should be first on your mind.



Stove glass cracked

Sometimes something falls or drops onto your glass top stove and cracks the glass, and other times the glass can crack from other factors. This can be a very irritating issue. However, it can also be an extremely dangerous issue.

NEVER
 use your stove if the glass top is cracked or shattered. Even the smallest cracks are dangerous and the stove should never be used as cracks increase your risk of being electrocuted.



Stove burners spark all the time

If you’re cooking dinner on your stove and notice the burner start to spark, that can startle you! And you’re probably thinking, “why is it doing that?!” Don’t worry though, our team of professional repairmen are here to help. If your stove burner is sparking, this is dangerous and can be a fire hazard, so it should be fixed right away.

Causes:

  • Loose connectors: as time goes on and you use your burners frequently, the connection can become loose. When the connection starts to loosen, it can cause high resistance, which can cause the wires to overheat and burn or arc, causing sparks.
  • Frayed wires: overtime the insulation on the wires that are connected to the burner may begin to fray. If the wires start to fray, they can cause arcing and sparks. You will need to replace these wires.
  • Damaged coil: Overtime, as you frequently use your burners, the coils can become damaged. If the coils have any cracks, bubbles, or blisters, this can cause sparking and you will have to replace your burner.
  • Defective element: if there doesn’t appear to be any damage or problems with your burner but it is sparking, it may be defective and needs to be replaced.



Stove knob won’t turn

Nothing is more frustrating than when your oven knob won’t turn and you have food to cook! However, the good news is that this problem is generally easy to fix!

If your oven knob is not turning, the problem is likely with the peg shaft or the knob cap. To begin fixing the issue, you need to take the knob handle off. To get the knob off, gently pull it off with your hand or ease it off with a butter knife.

Now that the knob is off, you can take a look at the peg shaft. When you are inspecting and fixing issues, always make sure to be careful, as if done incorrectly you can cause additional problems to your oven.

To inspect the peg shaft, you will notice a peg protruding from the cooker front. Take a pair of pliers and gently try to turn the peg to change the temperature. If the peg turns and works successfully, the issue is with the knob, which can easily be replaced. If the peg still does not move when you try to turn it, the peg has probably gotten stuck. You can simply add some WD40 to the peg and allow it to soak in. Then, try turning the peg again, if it still does not move, you will need to call a professional to help you fix the issue.



Range surface element won’t turn off

If you’re done cooking and the stove burner won’t turn off, it can be concerning and dangerous. Not only is it dangerous to your safety, but it can also be a fire hazard. You are going to need to fix this issue as soon as possible.

Causes:

  • Broken knob: if the knob on the stove is broken, it won’t be able to turn the temperature off. You can try removing the knob handle and manually turn the temperature off with a pair of pliers by turning the peg.
  • Electronic or control pad error: Sometimes the electronics or control pad in your stove encounter an error and the stove will not receive the message that it needs to turn off. Try unplugging the oven from the wall and waiting 60 seconds before plugging it back in to see if this resets the oven.
  • Faulty surface element: if the surface element shorts out, the burner may not be able to turn off. As well, if the electrical contacts have fused together, this will send constant voltage to the burner, meaning it will not be able to turn off and will need to be replaced.
  • Faulty surface element switch: the surface element switch indicates to the stove when it needs to turn off. If the switch shorts out, the stove won’t get the message to turn off.

Trouble maintaining temperature

The oven is a valuable and often taken-for-granted appliance. You turn the dial to the desired temperature, wait the standard 10 minutes for it to heat up and.. voila! You’re ready to create your culinary masterpiece. But what happens when that perfect temperature starts to drop? Worst-case scenario; you need a new stove. Best case scenario; the problem is a simple fix that you can do yourself.



Oven Failure to turn on

You’re trying to put dinner in the oven and it just won’t start? “Oh no!” you’re probably thinking. When your oven doesn’t turn on it can feel quite stressful and needs to be sorted as soon as possible.

It’s a good job there are some troubleshooting steps you can take to try and fix your oven. Looking after your oven can have a range of long-lasting benefits to make your life easier.



Oven door does not close properly

If your oven door does not close properly, the heat will escape from your oven. This can lead to cooking times that are all off and uneven baking. You could even burn yourself from the heat leaking from the door. This is definitely an issue that needs a swift repair.

This is where we can help. Regular maintenance on your oven can help stop issues from cropping up and extend the life of your oven.



Oven self cleaning problem

Running the self cleaning cycle on your oven has the possibility of causing issues to it. As well, there could be an issue with your oven that is preventing your self cleaning cycle from working. These issues can be extremely frustrating to deal with. But don’t worry, our team has all the experience needed to repair any oven issues!

Causes:

  • Door latch switch: If something is wrong with your door latch switch, the oven cleaning cycle will not begin. The door switch allows the oven door to lock, and the cycle will only run if the door is able to lock.
  • Door lock motor and switch assembly: as mentioned above, the door switch allows the oven door to lock, and the cleaning cycle will only run if the door is locked. The switch is what activates the door lock motor to keep the oven door locked during the self cleaning cycle. If the door lock motor and switch assembly is faulty, the door will remain locked after the cleaning cycle is over and you will not be able to open the door.
  • Temperature control thermostat: this thermostat is what regulates the temperature of the oven. If the temperature control thermostat is faulty, it may not work during the self cleaning process. It is possible for this thermostat to work correctly during backing cycles but not for the cleaning cycle.
  • Thermal fuse: the job of the thermal fuse is to shut the power off to the oven when it gets too hot, to avoid overheating. It is possible for the thermal fuse to blow while the self cleaning cycle is running. If this happens, you will have to replace it.



Oven interior light not working

If your oven interior light is not working, it can be a pain. You’re constantly having to open the oven to see how your meal is coming along, which affects the time taken to cook and the quality of your food. Have you ever baked a cake while opening the oven door to check on it? The result is a pancake!

Getting regular maintenance carried out on your oven and other kitchen appliances can help prevent issues like this from cropping up. There are a few easy fixes that you too can try to sort out this frustrating issue.



Oven not heating properly

The oven is a valuable and often taken-for-granted appliance. You turn the dial to the desired temperature, wait the standard 10 minutes for it to heat up and.. voila! You’re ready to create your culinary masterpiece. But what happens when that perfect temperature starts to drop? Worst-case scenario; you need a new stove. Best case scenario; the problem is a simple fix that you can do yourself.



Oven doesn’t bake evenly

It can be incredibly frustrating when you need to bake something, but your oven is not baking it evenly! Chances are, you don’t know why your oven is causing your food to bake unevenly. Don’t worry, there are a few common causes to explain this, and our technicians are always here to help!

One reason may be that your oven is not calibrated correctly. If the oven is not level, it will not cook food evenly. If your oven calibration is off, you are going to want an expert technician to help you fix this problem.

Another reason your oven may not be baking evenly is because the heat is not distributed evenly. This can be caused by a dirty oven fan or a door that is not closing properly. Make sure to clean the oven fan and check the door seals to ensure that they are in good condition.

The issue could also be as simple as moving around your oven racks. If your food is burnt on top but undercooked at the bottom, then it may be time for a little more labour. You may need to lower the racks in order for it all to cook equally, and even rotate them as they’re cooking so there’s no uneven spots.



Oven broiler problem

If you are a person who uses their oven broiler, you may be upset when you start facing problems with it. There is no reason to worry when the team at Express Repair can help you with any broiler problem you may be facing.

Causes:

  • Burnt out broil element: when the broil element is working properly, it glows a bright red when heated up, and will not glow if it is not working. You are able to check for holes or blisters on the element that can help indicate if it has burnt out. You can use a multimeter to check for continuity on the broil element. If it does not have continuity, it has burnt out and will need to be replaced.
  • Temperature control thermostat: this thermostat regulates the temperature of the broiler. If the thermostat is no longer working, it will not be able to heat up the broiler element. When the thermostat malfunctions, you will need to replace it as it is not repairable.
  • Oven control board: The control board sends voltage to the bake and broil circuits when you need to use them. If the control board is faulty, it may not be able to send the voltage to the broil circuit. Before you replace the control board, make sure you have tested all other possibilities and causes of the broiler problem.

Best case scenario; the problem is a simple fix that you can do yourself.



Oven fan is not spinning

The oven fan not working correctly is a common, and sometimes noisy, problem that your oven can face. Our technicians are well experienced in solving all kinds of oven problems, so you can trust our team!

Causes:

  • Oven fan element is faulty: if you check your oven and feel it blowing cold air and the thermostat light is on, then the problem is likely with the fan element. If the fan element is damaged, it will not work correctly. You will need to get a technician to check this problem out for you.
  • Oven fan motor malfunction: if you notice that the oven fan sounds noisy or moves slow, the problem could be with the fan motor. For safety reasons, when it comes to inspecting the oven fan, you should always trust a reliable technician to inspect it instead of trying it yourself. To check if the motor is faulty, the technician will ensure the oven is off and unplugged. They will try to turn the fan blades by hand, and if they feel stiff then the problem is likely with the motor. They can also check to see if the fan blades need to be cleaned, as sometimes they get covered in gunk, and cleaning may solve the problem.
  • Wrong oven setting: if the fan and the heating are both not working on your oven, check to see which mode the oven has been set to. If it has been set to “auto” mode, this could be the problem. Simply change your oven back to the “manual” setting.



Oven hinges problem

If your oven door does not close properly, the heat will escape from your oven. This can lead to cooking times that are all off and uneven baking. You could even burn yourself from the heat leaking from the door. This is definitely an issue that needs a swift repair.

This is where we can help. Regular maintenance on your oven can help stop issues from cropping up and extend the life of your oven.



Oven temperature sensor failure

Sometimes our ovens start having issues and we’re not sure why. This can be incredibly frustrating, especially since ovens are such an important part of the kitchen and your everyday use!

If you’re having problems with your oven, one of the possibilities is the oven temperature sensor. Here are some common problems that are caused by an oven temperature sensor issue:

  • Longer cooking times than usual: if you are having to prolong your usual cooking time by 10 or 20 minutes, this can mean the temperature sensor isn’t gauging the proper temperature.
  • Undercooked food: if you take out your food when it should be perfectly cooked, but it is actually undercooked, the sensor may only be heating the oven to a fraction of the set temperature.
  • Unevenly cooked food: if you pull your food out of the oven and half of it is cooked or overcooked while the other half is still raw, chances are the temperature sensor needs to be replaced.
  • Oven overheating: The oven overheating is the most serious issue caused by a faulty temperature sensor. If you set the oven temperature to 350 degrees but it rapidly heats up to 450 degrees, this is a serious issue and you will want to get it fixed as soon as possible.



Oven knob won’t turn

Nothing is more frustrating than when your oven knob won’t turn and you have food to cook! However, the good news is that this problem is generally easy to fix!

If your oven knob is not turning, the problem is likely with the peg shaft or the knob cap. To begin fixing the issue, you need to take the knob handle off. To get the knob off, gently pull it off with your hand or ease it off with a butter knife.

Now that the knob is off, you can take a look at the peg shaft. When you are inspecting and fixing issues, always make sure to be careful, as if done incorrectly you can cause additional problems to your oven.

Oven won’t turn off

If you’re done cooking and your oven won’t turn off, this can seem like a big problem. When your oven doesn’t turn on it can feel quite stressful and needs to be sorted as soon as possible.

Causes:

  • Oven control board: the oven control board uses relays to send voltage to the bake and broil circuits. If one of these relay shorts is closed, continuous voltage may be delivered to the heating circuit. If the oven is turned off and still heats, it is likely a broken control board that needs to be replaced.
  • Bake and broil element: if one of the heating elements burns out, it can cause a short in the oven. If the heating element has shorted out, the oven will not turn off. You can check to see if there is any damage such as holes or blisters on the element that may indicate a short. If there is, you will need to replace the element. Similarly, the broil element can short out causing the same problem.



Oven fan keeps running

If the fan in your oven is still running after you have turned off your oven, there may be a problem. Our technicians have plenty of experience working on all sorts of oven problems and are available to help.

Causes:

  • Faulty temperature sensor: if the temperature sensor is faulty, it may think your oven is still hot, even if it is not. This means the fan will continue to run, even if the oven is cool.
  • Faulty control thermostat: the control thermostat regulates the temperature of the oven and starts the fan if the oven gets too hot. If the thermostat is faulty, it may turn the fan on even when it is not hot.
  • Faulty cooling fan thermostat: The cooling fan thermostat starts the fan when the oven gets hot. If the fan continues to operate after the oven has cooled down, the issue may be with this thermostat.

“The dishwasher is leaking!” Not words anyone wants to hear. Hiring a repairman is expensive. A new dishwasher is even more costly. Of course, you could go back to doing the dishes by hand. But the situation may not be as dire as all that.

Before you call the repairman or resign yourself to dishpan hands, there are some things you can do. First of all, consider doing regular maintenance.



Dishes come out dirty

One cause of panic in the kitchen is when you have dishes come out of dishwasher dirty. It’s important that you can rely on your dishwasher to take care of dirty dishes for you.

For a busy person like you, a malfunctioning dishwasher means piles of unsightly and unsanitary soiled, sticky plates and cutlery you don’t have time or strength to deal with.

It’s a good thing that you can remedy this problem. What’s even better is that you avoid this type of problem by properly maintaining the condition of your dishwasher.



Dishwasher doesn’t dry dishes

Opening your dishwasher to find that the load is still wet is frustrating, to say the least. A range of things could be the cause of the problem, such as how you have loaded the contents, malfunctioning dishwasher parts, or a combination of both.



Dishwasher smells bad

It’s no good to wash your dishes when the dishwasher smells bad. The foul odor will transfer to your dishes and what good is that if you have a bad-smelling plate, glass, or spoon and fork? No one wants to use smelly dinnerware.



Dishwasher overflowing

When your dishwasher overflows, it hits you with an unpleasant double whammy. You’ve got to make time to deal with the mess. And you’ve got to figure out a repair. But don’t worry, Express Repair is here to help you with that repair! Here are a few causes of dishwasher overflow:

  • Dishwasher detergent: there are 2 causes from dishwasher detergent that could be causing the problem. The first one is that you have used too much detergent so the suds overflow onto the floor. The second one is that you are using inadequate detergent.
  • Door gasket is worn: if your door gasket is worn or damaged, this can cause water to leak out of the dishwasher.
  • Faulty water inlet valve: the inlet valve is what delivers the water to your dishwasher. If this inlet valve is not working correctly, it can cause the dishwasher to overflow.
  • Broken float assembly or switch: The float is what signals the float switch to turn the water off when it fills enough. If the float or the switch is not working, this will cause your dishwasher to overflow.



Dishwasher buttons don’t work

It can be very inconvenient when your dishwasher buttons are not working. This is a problem you’re going to want to fix so that you can get back to using your dishwasher as usual.

Usually the issue when it comes to the buttons malfunctioning is the touchpad. You can test out the touchpad by pressing some of the buttons – if some are working but some are not, then the problem is likely the touchpad. To solve this problem you have to replace the touchpad. Some companies sell touchpads separately, while others sell the touchpad and control panel together.
If you need help replacing the touchpad or assessing other problems with your dishwasher, our trained and experienced technicians can help you as soon as possible. Give us a call today and we will help you get your dishwasher back up and running as soon as possible!



Dishwasher is making strange noises

Dishwashers are notoriously known for making some noises such as sloshing of the water and whirring of the pump. However, loud and unusual sounds such as grinding, buzzing, and thumping could be a cause of concern. And, quite frankly, the noises are annoying.



Dishwasher doesn’t dispense soap

A dishwasher that doesn’t wash dishes is essentially useless. You have to put the load on for a second cycle or wash the dishes by hand. Commonly, the reason your dishes are not coming out sparkling clean is that your dishwasher doesn’t dispense soap.



Dishwasher doesn’t clean properly

One cause of panic in the kitchen is when you have dishes come out of dishwasher dirty. It’s important that you can rely on your dishwasher to take care of dirty dishes for you.

For a busy person like you, a malfunctioning dishwasher means piles of unsightly and unsanitary soiled, sticky plates and cutlery you don’t have time or strength to deal with.

It’s a good thing that you can remedy this problem. What’s even better is that you avoid this type of problem by properly maintaining the condition of your dishwasher.



Dishwasher lights flashing

When your dishwasher lights start flashing, it can be confusing. You’re probably thinking “why are the lights flashing?!” As well, when the lights are flashing, it usually means the dishwasher has stopped working, which is frustrating.

There are a few reasons why the dishwasher lights may be flashing:

  • Heating element isn’t heating water to proper temperature
  • Dishwasher door was opened during a cycle
  • There was a power interruption during a cycle
  • The door was unlatched while the machine was set for a delay start
  • The buttons were pressed too many times
  • Child lock function is on

Before looking into a repair, you can try resetting your dishwasher and see if that works.



Dishwasher is not turning off

When your dishwasher won’t stop running, it can be a waste of time, water, and electricity. When your dishwasher keeps running endlessly on a cycle, you’re going to want to get it fixed as soon as possible to save yourself on water and electricity bills!

Causes:

  • Faulty timer motor: the timer motor is what lets the dishwasher know when to start and stop a cycle. If the timer motor is faulty, it won’t be able to signal the stop of one cycle and the start of another, leaving your dishwasher running.
  • Faulty heating element: when there is a problem with the heating element, the cycle may not reach the correct temperature. If the cycle does not reach the correct temperature, the next cycle won’t be signaled to start, leaving the dishwasher to continue running in the current cycle.
  • Thermostat problems: if the thermostat is not working properly, it may not be able to accurately read the temperature of a cycle. When the thermostat can’t read the temperature correctly, the next cycle will not be signaled to begin, so it will continue to run endlessly in the current cycle.
  • Broken float assembly or switch: The float is what signals the float switch to turn the water off when it fills enough. If the float or the switch is not working, this will cause your dishwasher to overflow.



Dishwasher door not latch

If your dishwasher door won’t latch, that also means your dishwasher will not be able to run. In order to run a cycle, the door must be properly closed and latched. So, this can be a very frustrating issue.

This issue is commonly the result of broken or malfunctioning parts that will not allow the door to latch properly. In most cases, these parts are fairly simple to replace. These parts include:

  • Door latch: the door latch is the part on your dishwasher that latches closed to ensure that no water escapes from your dishwasher, and signals your dishwasher to let it know that it is safe to turn on. If the door latch is not activating when the door closes, there is likely an issue with the latch and it will need to be replaced.
  • Strike plate: the strike plate is the area where the door latch locks into. Sometimes the strike plate becomes misaligned, and will simply need to be readjusted into its proper position. If the plate is metal and has become rusty, or if it is plastic and has been damaged, it will need to be replaced.
  • Door hinge: the door hinges can become broken, loose, or rusty. Sometimes you can notice there is a problem with the hinges if your dishwasher door is crooked or squealing. If there is a problem with the hinges, they will need to be replaced.
  • Door springs: the springs are what allow the door to open and close without any problems. Sometimes a spring has popped out of place, or has become damaged, causing the door to not be able to close properly, and the latch will not lock.
  • Door gasket: the door gasket is what forms a watertight seal when the door is closed, ensuring that no water escapes. If the gasket is damaged or deformed, it can prevent the door from closing fully or the latch from being activated.



Dishwasher soap dispenser doesn’t work

A dishwasher that doesn’t wash dishes is essentially useless. You have to put the load on for a second cycle or wash the dishes by hand. Commonly, the reason your dishes are not coming out sparkling clean is that your dishwasher doesn’t dispense soap.



Dishwasher not getting water

One of the most frustrating issues your dishwasher can face is not filling up with water. How can you wash your dishes if the machine isn’t getting water? That’s why you’re going to want to get this issue fixed quickly.

Causes:

  • Float: the float rises while the dishwasher fills, and when it reaches a certain point it triggers sensors that stop the water. If the float has gotten stuck in the shut-off position, this will prevent water from entering the dishwasher.
  • Dirty valve screens: water passes through inlet valves in order to enter into the dishwasher. These inlet valves have screen filters, and if water is not getting through it could be that these screens are clogged with dirt and debris.
  • Water supply line: sometimes the problem isn’t even with the dishwasher itself; it can be with the water supply line. The water supply line could be kinked or damaged. Luckily, if the hose is kinked, you can solve the problem just by straightening it! If the hose is damaged you will have to replace it.
  • Door indicator: if there is a problem with the door indicator, the appliance won’t be able to tell if the door is closed properly. The dishwasher will not fill with water unless the door is properly closed.

Common fridge issues and the signs it needs a maintenance check!



Refrigerator compressor is too hot

You rely on your refrigerator to keep your food cold, and the compressor is the part that’s responsible for cooling down the inside of your fridge. This is why when you notice your fridge or freezer compressor is too hot, it is important to get the problem fixed as soon as possible.

Overheated compressors are actually the number-one cause of refrigerator failure. So it is very important to get it fixed right away and do not delay!
Causes:

  • The temperature thermostat is broken
  • The sealed system is lacking refrigerant
  • The condenser fan failed
  • The compressor is worn out and overheating
  • The fridge is placed in direct sunlight



REFRIGERATOR DEFROST DRAIN PROBLEMS & FREEZER DEFROST DRAIN PROBLEMS

If you open up your fridge and there is water pooling at the bottom, chances are the defrost drain is clogged. This should be a quick fix and it is very easy for you to take a look at yourself as well. You are going to want to fix this problem as soon as possible to avoid your food from spoiling.

Your drain hole may be clogged with debris. You can try cleaning the drain hole with a special stick for the job, or something like a cotton swab or straw.

There is also the possibility that the defrost drain is clogged with ice. To clear the drain of the ice, use a plumbing snake and push it as far into the drain hole as you can and move it up and down until the clog of ice has been cleared. After this, you should fill the drain with 1 teaspoon of baking soda and slowly pour in 2 cups of hot water. The drain should be able to work again.



REFRIGERATOR NOT DEFROSTING & REFRIGERATOR FREEZER COILS FROSTING UP

If you open up your fridge and notice ice and frost inside, chances are your fridge is not defrosting. When the inside of your fridge looks like winter has arrived, you’re going to want to get the issue fixed so your food does not freeze.

Causes:

  • Issue with defrost control board: Your fridge has a control board that directs when it needs to run the automatic defrost cycle. When there is an issue with the control board, the defrost cycle will not run.
  • Issue with defrost sensor and fuse: Your fridge comes with a defrost sensor system, and this system monitors the temperature of your evaporator. This part comes with a fuse that is used as a back up in the case of the sensor failing. If the sensor fails to shut off the defrost heater, the fuse will blow, and the heater will be forced to shut off. If this happens, your heater will no longer work and your fridge will not defrost.
  • Defrost timer not working: Your fridge comes with a defrost timer which turns on the defrost heater throughout the day. When the timer is not working, it may not send any power to the defrost heater, meaning the fridge will not defrost.
  • Defrost heater not working: The fridge has a defrost heater, which heats up to remove any frost. When the defrost heater is broken, your fridge is unable to defrost.



FRIDGE IS TOO LOUD

Suddenly noticing that your normally quiet fridge is too loud can cause alarm in even the most stoic of individuals. Loud or uncommon noises should be taken seriously.

However, there are some proactive things you can do yourself. Properly maintained and cared for, your fridge can be a useful asset to your household for many years.



REFRIGERANT FREON RECHARGE

If your fridge isn’t cooling properly, it could be because it needs a recharge of Freon. The only way your fridge would run out of Freon is if there is a leak in one of the components. There are a few ways to see if you’re out of Freon, or if there is a different issue.

The first thing to do is to locate your fridge’s condenser. Put your hand next to it to see if it is hot. If it feels cold and the refrigerator has been running, there is a chance that you need more Freon.

The next thing you can do is unplug the fridge, turn off the temperature control, and then put your ear up against the side of the fridge. If you hear hissing and gurgling sounds, that means there is Freon in the fridge and working. If you don’t hear anything, this is a sign that could indicate a lack of Freon.

The last thing you need to do is remove the cover from the evaporator. Plug your fridge back into power and turn the temperature control back on, then let the fridge run for a couple of minutes with the door closed. After a few minutes, check the evaporator. If there is no frost, this could mean you need more Freon.



FRIDGE IS TOO LOUD

Suddenly noticing that your normally quiet fridge is too loud can cause alarm in even the most stoic of individuals. Loud or uncommon noises should be taken seriously.



FRIDGE IS NOT WORKING AT ALL

We understand how big of a problem it is when your fridge won’t work at all. We rely on our fridges to keep all our food cold and safe to eat. So when your fridge isn’t working, it’s important to get it back up and running before it’s too late and your food spoils.

There is a range of reasons why your fridge might not be working, including:

  • Door is not sealing properly
  • Refrigerator has been unplugged
  • Thermostat not set properly
  • Clogged vents
  • Dust and debris on fridge coils
  • Dust and debris on the fan
  • Part breakdowns



FRIDGE FAN IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY

When the fan is not working properly in your fridge, the cold air is not circulating which can cause your food to spoil. If you notice your fridge isn’t cooling properly or that something is wrong with the fan, you are going to want to get it fixed ASAP.

Causes:

  • Fan is blocked: if the fan is blocked by something, it will not spin. When the fan doesn’t spin, the air will not circulate into the refrigerator cabin.
  • Broken Fan Motor: if the motor that spins the fan blades are broken, the entire fan will stop working.
  • Thermostat control issues: if the thermostat detects an issue with temperature, it can cause the fan to stop working.



ICE NOT COMING OUT OF ICE MAKER
Wanted some fresh ice cubes for your drink but no ice is coming out? When this happens, you should take the issue seriously as it can be a sign of a deeper problem with your fridge.
However, don’t start stressing out just yet as it’s quite a common problem with ice not coming out of ice maker. Since there are common problems, there are also common solutions which we’ll go into detail about later on in this article.


HOW TO STOP YOUR FRIDGE FROM FREEZING FOOD

Have you ever gone to get food from your fridge to discover it is frozen?
You then need to wait for your food to thaw before you can eat it, leaving vegetables soggy and food spoiled. While this does not happen often, it can be extremely frustrating to find your fridge is freezing food. If it was meant to be frozen, you’d have put it in the freezer!

FOOD GOES BAD WHEN THE FRIDGE DOOR DOESN’T CLOSE PROPERLY
If The Fridge Door Isn’t Closing Properly
Believe it or not, but a lot of fridge door issues can simply come down to something like a slightly open crisper drawer, or a shelf that has fallen out of alignment. A buildup of dirt and grime on your refrigerator door gaskets is another potential issue. If those gaskets are covered in filth and gunk, you won’t be able close them properly. Cleaning the gaskets with warm, soapy water and a cloth is something you can easily do on your own. Some people would even tell you to clean the gaskets twice!


WHY IS MY FRIDGE DOOR NOT STAYING CLOSED?

If there is one common issue with appliances, it is fridge doors not closing properly. The seal around your fridge door is what keeps the cold in. If the door stays open, this seal is broken and warm air will creep in and slowly spoil your food. Your fridge then goes into overdrive to try to keep temperatures down, making it noisy and raising the temperature even further. The overall result? Warm food and a loud, whirring appliance.



WHY IS MY FREEZER NOT COLD ENOUGH?

Unless you want melted ice cream and defrosted meat, a warm freezer is never a good thing. Your first thought will probably be that the door has been left ajar. However, if you go back later to find that your freezer’s contents are only getting warmer, there is probably a technical reason that your freezer is not cold enough.



FREEZER IS COLD BUT FRIDGE IS WARM

There is nothing more frustrating than when your freezer is working but your fridge is not cold enough! There are a couple reasons this could be happening, and you will want to fix the issue as soon as possible to avoid the contents of your fridge going bad!

Causes:

  • Overpacked freezer: if your freezer is overly packed, the vents that allow the cold air to flow to the refrigerator may be blocked. When these vents are blocked, the cold air can’t enter the fridge cabin and therefore it will not be cold enough.
  • Evaporator fan: the evaporator fan moves the cold air from the freezer into the evaporator, where that air is then pushed into the fridge to keep it cold. If there is a problem with the fan, the freezer will remain cold but the fridge will be warm.
  • Defrost system: if your defrost system is not working properly, frost and ice can build up in areas such as the vents or evaporator coils. When this happens, this can cause your freezer to remain cold but your fridge to feel too warm.



FREEZER INDICATOR LIGHT IS NOT WORKING

If your freezer indicator light is not working, don’t worry. The team at Express Repair can help you. There are 2 common reasons for the indicator light not working:

  • Indicator light has burned out: the main cause of the indicator light not working is that it has burned out. Simply replace the light to solve the problem, but check to see if there are any broken wires or detached connections to the indicator light first.
  • User control and display board are defective: if the light has not burned out, chances are that the user control and display board need to be replaced.

FRESH FOOD COMPARTMENT WARMING UP

Opening your fridge to prepare that fresh crispy salad and discovering wilted lettice and limp carrots is enough to send anyone’s imagination into overdrive. Are all my veggies spoiled because of the fresh food compartment warming up? How much does a repairman cost? Can I afford a new fridge right now?



BROKEN FREEZER

Has your freezer suddenly stopped freezing your food or liquids? We understand that this can be quite concerning as you really don’t want your food to expire because then it’s just wasted money.



WATER DISPENSER NOT WORKING

You want a drink of refreshing cold water poured straight from your water dispenser. You pick up your glass, put it under the nozzle, and… nothing. No water is gushing out and you’re left without an ice-cold refreshment.



FRIDGE LEAKING WATER

The sight of a puddle under your fridge is enough to make anyone worry, and rightfully so. Your fridge is one of the most important appliances. Without it, you will not be able to keep your food fresh and safe for consumption. This is all the more reason to take action as soon as you notice water dripping or pooling under your fridge.

ICE MAKER OVERFLOWING

Having an overflowing ice maker can mean one of two things. Either your ice maker is producing normal size ice cubes but in excess, or there is an overflow of water into your ice maker so that there is now a large chunk of ice at the base. Honestly, neither problem is ideal.

However, you’ll be pleased to hear that both are an easy fix. To stop problems like this occurring again in the future, we recommend regular maintenance on your kitchen appliances.

ICE BUILD-UP IN FREEZER

Freezers are supposed to be cold, but a build-up of ice in your freezer is not wanted. It can mean all the contents are covered in a layer of frost, which can damage the food. It can also cause your freezer to malfunction as the freezer cannot regulate its temperature if vents are covered over in a layer of ice.
