Frequently Asked Question
Q. How much will it cost to repair my fridge?
A. The cost of repairs will depend on the problem and the parts needed to complete repairs. On average, repairs usually cost between $200 and $400.
Q. How long will my refrigerated food stay fresh without electricity?
A. The most important thing to remember is to keep your fridge shut during this time. It will help keep the temperature low for as long as possible. Usually, if your freezer is half full, your food should be safe for up to 24 hours.
Q. What should I do if my fridge gets too hot on the outside?
A. The main cause of this problem is damaged or broken door seals. If the doors on your fridge don't close properly, your fridge will cycle longer and more often. This creates more heat. If there is no problem with the door seals, a professional technician can help you by diagnosing and repairing the problem.
Q. How often does my fridge need cleaning?
A. It's a good idea to clean your fridge every 3 or 4 months. It also depends on how well you package your food before refrigerating and if something happens to spill.
Q. How often does my freezer need defrosting?
A. Fridge repair experts agree that your freezer should be defrosted once a year. However, you might find the need to do it more often depending on how much ice builds up.
Q. Why is my fridge making loud noises?
A. You might notice some noises when you buy a new fridge but, if you hear something out of the ordinary, it could be cause for concern. Make sure that your fridge is level and that it’s not leaning to one side. If this does not resolve the issue, you should make sure that there is nothing resting or stored on top of the fridge that could be making extra noise due to the normal vibrations of the motor. If neither of these quick fixes solves the problem, call a technician for expert assistance.
Q. How do I get that bad smell out of my fridge?
A. Your fridge can accumulate various smells over time. This is why it's so important to clean it out regularly. If you can't seem to get rid of a particular smell, try placing an open box of baking soda on one of the shelves. It will absorb that odor before you know it. If this does not solve the problem, make sure that there's nothing trapped under your fridge or perhaps the smell has another source altogether (like the trash).
Q. What do I do if my fridge is not getting cold enough?
A. If your fridge is not staying cool, there could be several possible causes. A technician should be called to check various working parts, including the thermostat.
Q. Can you recycle an old fridge?
A. Your fridge and freezer use Freon along with other substances that deplete the ozone. It is best to have a professional technician drain these substances from the appliance rather than simply dumping it. There are also recycling companies that will collect your fridge and ensure proper recycling procedures are followed.
Q. What is the ideal temperature for your fridge?
A. Your fridge should be set to 32-40° F (0-4 degrees Celsius) in order to keep your food fresh and ensure that the appliance is not overworked.
Q. Who will perform the repairs on my fridge?
A. At Capital Appliance, our technicians are both trained and experienced to perform reliable and speedy fridge repairs on all brands and models.
Q. What if my fridge breaks again shortly after repairs?
A. If your refrigerator experiences the same problems after our technicians have completed repairs, you can rely on our satisfaction guarantee. In other words, you will not need to pay a cent and we will work quickly to resolve the matter.

A. When you contact our team, we will take down all the relevant details regarding the make and model of your fridge.
