Is your refrigerator running? That’s not the opening to a joke for Provo, UT residents who find their ice cream melted and meats spoiled. While refrigerators can certainly conk out without any warning, there are usually some red flags desperately being waved before that happens. Regular maintenance of all appliances—including that hard working refrigerator—is crucial. A certified technician can spot warning signs early on, and that whole ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure saying is never more true than when you’re talking about ounces of organic milk and pounds of steaks that need to keep their cool.
“Just how much is this going to cost?” is the first thing most people wonder when their fridge is in need of repairs. There’s no one size fits all answer here. It depends on what needs to be repaired, how bad the damage is and if there are any tough to find (ahem, expensive) parts involved. However, the earlier the damage is found, the better—for both your fridge and your pocketbook. There’s a big difference between the ice maker being on the blitz and your fridge needing a totally re-worked compressor motor.
Not Just Anyone Can Fix a Fridge
Forget the temptation to repair a fridge yourself. It can be dangerous with wires, motors and water all playing into the mix. However, this doesn’t mean you should blindly choose the first fridge repair technician you can find. Experience, training and commitment to customer service are the trifecta of a good technician—and unfortunately you’re not going to find that just anywhere.
While not all states require the same schooling and certification, it’s in your best interest to choose a reputable, local repair technician who carries substantial certification and who’s fully licensed and bonded. Otherwise, you may be signing up for a world of trouble.
