Ok, so your Freezer isn’t running. Before you panic, check the power outlet and see if a fuse may have blown. If its still not powering on, this could be down to a number of reasons. The likely cause is the failure of one or more internal components and you need to act fast to preserve the food inside the freezer and minimise your cost implications for having to dispose of thawed food. 

Problems with the internal freezer control board, the cold control thermostat, compressor or defrost timer are the likely culprits in this scenario however the only way to make sure is to have a certified professional inspect the device and determine the cause of your problem. Thankfully, you can count on use for emergency freezer repairs Cape Town 24 hours a day. 

If you have excess frost inside your freezer, its usually the result of warm or moist air getting trapped inside the freezer when you open and close the door. While its normal to see frost inside your freezer, too much can cause problems with the normal operation and ultimately damage the appliance. 

Faulty defrost sensors are the main cause of such issues, and a prompt replacement is almost certainly necessary to continue with normal function and ensure no other serious faults occur. To understand exactly what is causing excessive frost build up, is the job of a trained expert. We can provide a full breakdown of your issues and a low cost quotation for repair. Call us today.

Frost and ice inside your freezer is normal and certainly is expected, however, if you open your freezer to find a sheet of ice at the bottom, this could indicate a problem and cause further internal malfunction if its not fixed right away.

A clogged defrost tube is usually the culprit in this case. Nearly all modern upright Freezers feature an automatic defrost feature, which utilises a drain tube to move water that gathers in the evaporator pan near the compressor. When this becomes blocked or obstructed, water will gather at the bottom of the freezer and cause excessive ice build up. Left over time, the expanding ice can cause serious damage to the unit and should be rectified sooner rather than later.

Just like a refrigeration unit, a freezer runs through its own compressor cycles to ensure peak performance and during normal function, should operate with barely any noise at all. If you notice excessive noise during the on / off cycles or if indeed the cycle is constant, you probably have an issue with one or more of the internal components.

We will need to fully inspect your freezer to determine whats causing the loud noise or excessive cycling, checking that there is no frost on the evaporator that can interfere with the rotating fan. Faulty components such as the defrost heater, timer or sensor will need to be replaced to rectify this type of issue.
