Samsung Refrigerator Repair in San Francisco, CA
The nation's fastest-growing appliance brand, Samsung is working hard to develop new and innovative refrigerators and achieve its goal to be the largest appliance manufacturer in the world. An increasing number of Americans purchased the company's high-end refrigerators over recent years. Especially popular are the company's Chef Collection models that offer features like water dispensers that provide both sparkling and still water and convertible refrigerator compartments that turn into a second freezer areas. 

With all of the special features these refrigerators contain, it's inevitable that consumers will occasionally run into a few problems over years of use. Owners of Samsung refrigerators often report that their fridges experience a troubling cycle that begins with a loud noise. Following the noise, self-defrosting abilities can fail, causing ice to build up in the unit, water and ice to gather in the lower crisper bins, and flooding to occur around the floor of the appliance. 

To find the culprit of the problem, it helps to understand a bit about how the refrigerator works. As the refrigerator defrosts, a heater melts the frost that has accumulated on both of the appliance's evaporators. When the fridge is working at its best, the frost melts and the resulting water empties into the drain pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. If the channel that carries the water to the drain pan becomes blocked, the frost/melt cycle doesn't have anywhere to go, and ice and water build up. With nowhere else to go, the water eventually gathers at the bottom of the fridge, where the crisper drawers are usually located. 

Expert Samsung refrigerator repair in San Francisco can solve the problem, first by removing the evaporator cover and drain cover and then checking the channel that transports the melted water. Metro Appliance Repair is well-versed in these and other common Samsung issues, and is ready to help you avoid costly and frustrating leaking. So call us today, to get your Samsung refrigerator back up and running.

Keeping Fire Out of the Fridge
As fridge experts, we talk a lot about things like compressors, condensers and safe food temperatures, but we don’t often discuss the prospects of refrigerator-caused fires. Viking’s 2013 built-in fridge recalls due to fire hazard remind us that fire is a real possibility with refrigerators. Luckily, there are some steps consumers can take to minimize fire risk, and there are some important warning signs to heed.

A fridge is one of the hardest working appliances in the home, running continuously to keep temperatures at food-safe levels. This constant operation requires the perpetual flow of significant electrical currents which can cause fire. 

One of the most common causes of refrigerator fires occurs when the refrigerator has been moved. Fridges are heavy, and if they’re moved and left to rest on the power leads, the fridge can damage the electrical wiring. This damage can lead to fire, electrical shorts and other hazards. If your fridge is not slightly elevated on rollers, be very careful when moving the refrigerator and make sure that it does not sit on the electrical leads.

Faulty, defective or damaged wiring inside the unit can also cause fire, just as it did in the recalled Viking built-in refrigerator/freezer models. In Viking’s case, the electrical connectors overheated and caused electrical shorts in a couple of dozen units and fires in a handful of fridges. When the refrigerator's wiring is defective to begin with, consumers can usually count on the Consumer Product Safety Commission to publicize a recall and the manufacturer to provide a no-cost repair. Sometimes, though, this problem is created by untrained do-it-yourself hobbyists or unqualified repair reps. That’s why it’s critical to call in knowledgeable and experienced refrigerator repair technicians any time you have a problem with a major appliance.

The moisture involved in keeping cool, non-humid air circulating throughout a fridge and freezer can also present some fire problems. According to T.C. Forensic & Scientific Services, door seals on refrigerators create some troubling issues, particularly when the seals are compromised. This breach in the seal can allow moisture to short circuit the refrigerator’s electrical components, leading to hot spots that cause the plastic door seal to burn. Occasionally, the consumer may notice a peculiar smell coming from the fridge before the fire is noticeable. If this occurs, consumers shouldn't automatically assume the odor is coming from food, and they should investigate the source of the smell.

There are countless other causes of fridge-related fires, but they can be avoided in many cases with proper, expert refrigerator maintenance. Metro Appliance Repair is always here to help, providing you with the skilled repair and maintenance services you deserve to keep your home and family safe.

LG Refrigerator Repair in San Francisco, CA
It's discouraging to open the refrigerator door only to find that everything inside is lukewarm. Food is a big part of most consumers' budgets, so when a refrigerator stops working, it can destroy hundreds of dollars in food. While LG refrigerators are generally well-respected and long-lasting, their fresh food compartments sometimes have issues with staying cool.

A refrigerator that is no longer cooling can be caused by many different problems, some that are fairly easy for homeowners to diagnose and fix. Other causes are far more complex and require the attention of an expert. Before calling a technician, though, there are a few steps you should take, beginning with checking the condenser coils. On some refrigerators, the coils are the snake-like tubes that run along the back of the fridge. Other refrigerators contain condenser coils at the bottom of the unit, behind a cover or grate. If the condenser coils are dirty, they can't properly diffuse heat, leading to refrigerators that can't stay cool. The fix is simple: vacuum dust from around the coils.

Other repairs aren't so easily handled by do-it-yourselfers. These breakdowns can run the gamut, including a bad evaporator motor, a defective start relay device, a failing condenser fan motor, a malfunctioning thermostat, a broken thermistor or temperature control board, a faulty start capacitor or a shot compressor. In some cases, the problem can even stem from a main control board that is broken.

Metro Appliance Repair has experience in fixing all of those issues, quickly, fairly and accurately. The local company's expert technicians even handle regular maintenance, so you'll never have to worry about dust-laden condenser coils again. Don't despair if your LG fridge is suddenly too warm, just call Metro Appliance repair right away, and its skilled service reps will have you fixed up in no time.
