Your fridge freezer is incredibly important in your home. But is it working properly? Is it time to upgrade to a newer model?
How to tell if you need a new fridge freezer
Here are some signs it might be time to look for a new fridge freezer…
1. It’s not cold
If your fridge is not cold you have a problem. It likely means the motor fan is broken. Replacing it is possible – but if the cost of the repair is too much, a new fridge-freezer could be more cost-effective.
2. Food goes off before its use-by date
Food going off too quickly is a sign your fridge is struggling to keep the temperature down. It is more noticeable in warmer months, when it has to work harder.
3. Your energy bills are going up
A sudden spike in your energy bills – when your usage hasn’t changed – could be down to a faulty kitchen appliance. A newer model can mean a big upfront expense, but they pay for themselves in the long run.
4. The inside is frosty
A little water or ice on the back wall of a fridge is completely normal. Any more, and you may have a problem. A large build-up of ice could mean the door seal is broken.
5. It’s making strange noises
Your fridge freezer won’t be silent: It will quietly hum away. But if it’s making any other noises –like knocking, clattering or banging - you’ve got a problem. Faulty compressors, failed condenser fans or broken condenser coils are all common causes of a noisy fridge.
