Refrigerator Repair Mira Mesa

If you don’t know what’s wrong with your refrigerator, how can you expect to fix your refrigerator? Are the freezers cold enough, but the fresh food compartment warming? If there is a noise, is it coming from inside the freezer, behind the refrigerator, or somewhere else? Is there frost forming anywhere out of the ordinary? Take a moment to observe your refrigerators symptoms, it will be well worth your time.

Even the most well-made and reliable appliances may develop issues after years of operation. When that time comes, you should look into getting them repaired.

One of the main things that can go wrong with refrigerators is that they stop keeping your groceries cold. This may be due to any number of factors, such as a Freon leak. Another common issue is that the refrigerator is running nearly constantly but still not getting any colder. Dirty condenser coils are often the cause of this. These are the black coils located underneath or behind your refrigerator, which works to remove heat. The fix is simple, use a long, bristle brush to gently eliminate dust and dirt buildup from the coils. A condenser coil clean off should happen every six months, or more frequently if you have furry pets. Certain components of a refrigerator may stop working as well. For example, the water dispenser could stop working, or the icemaker could stop producing ice or defrosting when it is supposed to. If the icemaker is failing to produce ice, the water inlet valve may be restricted or faulty. When it comes to standalone, chest, or upright style freezers, common issues include not cooling efficiently, not running all of the time, or not working entirely.

Washer Repair Mira Mesa

Did your washer quit spinning or dryer quit heating? Before considering replacement call us so our appliance repair professional can take a look at it. Sometimes the problem is something as simple as the machine not receiving power, which can be caused by a faulty outlet, a circuit breaker that has tripped, or mechanical timers and knobs that have stopped working.

If the machine is under constant heavy use, its motor can overheat and momentarily stop working. If, after giving the motor time to properly cool down, it again fails to turn on, contact us for a professional repair quote. There could be more serious issues, such as a faulty thermal fuse or thermostat.

If the machine fails to spin the most common reason for this can be a broken or loose belt. When the belt is the culprit, you can hear the motor running even though the machine’s drum is not spinning. A loose, snapped or worn belt needs to be changed. If the door doesn’t properly close or the door’s switch isn’t working, it will stop the machine from spinning. Other more serious problems are issues with a washer’s transmission or clutch, or it could be a dryer’s pulley, glides or drum rollers.

If the Dryer produces little or no heat it can’t get the right amount of air. Proper airflow is crucial. Also, if your settings (amount of time, type of fabric, temperature, etc.) do not correspond to the kind of clothes or fabrics you are drying, the dryer will appear ineffective. Avoid putting too many clothes in the dryer. A malfunctioning heating element, igniter or thermal fuse can cause a dryer to stop producing heat and will require professional repairs. A heating element can break or burn. The igniter can also break or develop white or yellowish deposits that hamper its function, and the thermal fuse can blow.

If the Washer won’t drain kinks and lint filters on the hose are common culprits, as is the hose not sitting above the level of water in the tub. A malfunctioning water pump can also be the culprit. Removal and replacement requires an experienced technician.

If the washer leaks it could be Bad seals or gaskets can cause a washer to leak water. The tub has a main seal that can begin to leak after heavy use. A bad main seal usually requires professional help to replace. Leaks on a front-load washer are caused by the door’s seal. If it continues to leak after a good cleaning, have the gasket replaced to ensure a proper, tight seal when the door is closed. A water pump with a bad seal will let water drip out and needs to be fixed.

If the repair seems too intense for your DIY homeowner skills, be sure to hire a professional here at vortex appliance services.

Dryer Repair Mira Mesa

Did your Dryer quit spinning or quit heating? Before considering replacement call us so our appliance repair professional can take a look at it. Sometimes the problem is something as simple as the machine not receiving power, which can be caused by a faulty outlet, a circuit breaker that has tripped, or mechanical timers and knobs that have stopped working.

While we can all dry our clothes on a clothesline or drying rack, a gas or electric clothes dryer has become a staple in most homes. And, when it stops working correctly, it can ruin or delay your normal routine.

If you have an Electric dryer Electric dryers use two household fuses or circuit breakers. The drum can still turn if just one fuse is blown but there will be no heat. You may need to replace both fuses or reset both circuit breakers.

If the Dryer produces little or no heat it can’t get the right amount of air. Proper airflow is crucial. Also, if your settings (amount of time, type of fabric, temperature, etc.) do not correspond to the kind of clothes or fabrics you are drying, the dryer will appear ineffective.

Dishwasher Repair Mira Mesa

Dishwashers are incredibly durable machines, which can have years of daily use. In many cases, it’s only a change in decor that brings about a replacement. Of course that doesn’t mean things never go wrong with them. From time to time a motor may go bad here or a leaky hose shows up there. The dishwasher is a resourceful appliance that uses both electricity and water to give us years of dependable service.

With every repair circumstance, you’ll want to check the most common reasons first. They are usually the main causes and the easiest to deal with. Here are some of the more common problems you may face with your dishwasher, and here at Vortex Appliance service we have ways to find out what’s causing it and how to fix it.

Problem: The dishwasher won’t turn on at all.
Solution: With every electrical appliance, it pays to check the power at the source. Make sure the breaker is on. If it is, then check the power at the dishwasher. If it’s hardwired, go back and turn the breaker off. Open the dishwasher door, unscrew the screws holding it in place underneath the countertop and shimmy the unit out. The junction box is located at the rear, on the bottom. Open the junction box and check the wires for corrosion, breaks, or loose connections. Check the interior of the box for any burn or “arc” marks. If everything is clear, turn the power back on and check for voltage by probing the black and white wires. If you get no voltage, the breaker may be bad.

Problem: The dishwasher leaks from underneath.
Solution: Nine times out of ten it’s a hose problem. Check the drainage hose for cracks or loose connectors. If it’s not the hose, then it could be one of these causes:

The gaskets on the heating element may be loose or bad — If you see evidence of leakage at the gaskets, simply unscrew the heating element and unlock it from its holders. Disconnect the leads and replace the gaskets. Reassemble.

Check the tub for any rust spots. Minor spots can be cleaned up and repaired with an epoxy approved for dishwashers. Purchase the epoxy at your appliance store and follow the directions on the container.

Problem: The dishwasher sounds like it’s running, but there’s no water going in it.
Solution: The easiest thing to check is the float switch. It’s located in the base of the tub. Make sure there’s nothing obstructing it and that it lifts up easily. Check the switch by probing the terminals with the VOM. With the VOM on RX1, probe the terminals and you should get a reading of zero. With the float raised, the reading should be infinity. If not, replace the float switch. If the switch is OK, then here’s another common problem to check:

The inlet valve could be clogged? Turn the water off feeding the dishwasher and disconnect the hose, wires, and pipe from the valve. Remove the mounting screws and pull the valve out. With needle nose pliers, remove the filter from the valve. Clean the filter under running water. Reassemble.

Problem: The water won’t drain out.
Solution: The most common problem is a dirty strainer. Many dishwashers have one that sits on the bottom, but some have a little raised part in the corner. Check to make sure it’s not clogged with food or debris. If it’s all clear, check to make sure the drain hose isn’t bent or kinked. Remove the hose and check for any clogs.
