Ottawa Residential Refrigeration Services
Of all the incredible inventions that have helped shape modern life, few are as important as the refrigerator. Because we no longer had to depend entirely on local perishables, food prices dropped due to availability and we now have access to a variety of foods that would have never been able to survive long journeys. And best of all, food waste has gone down significantly because spoilage has become so much easier to prevent.
The refrigerator has become such an important part of everyday life that most Ottawa residents don’t even think twice about it. They just bolt straight to the fridge in their kitchen, take what they need and move on to something new. Because so many people take their fridges for granted, when it stops working it’s often a cause for panic.

Signs Your Fridge Needs Repairs
There are number of telltale signs that your fridge could benefit from GK Plumbing & Heating Inc.’s refrigeration services. The key is to notice them before the appliance breaks down completely, leaving you with a surplus of soon-to-be-spoiled food.
Some of the signs your fridge needs repairs include:
Your Fridge is Making A Lot of Noise
Whenever you can’t hear yourself think over the sound of your refrigerator, there are typically three possible reasons it’s become so loud:
- A loss of lubricant in the fan or coolant motors
- A loose fan blade
- The drip pan is too close to the compressor
Your Fridge is Too Cold or Not Cold Enough
At the risk of sounding condescending, we ask that you check your refrigerator’s thermostat. Sometimes the too cold or not cold enough problem is as simple to solve as a turning a knob on the thermostat. If the problem persists after you have adjusted the settings, then it might be:
- A clogged condenser coil
- An inefficient door seal
- A defective fan
- A problem with the start capacitor or the compressor
Your Fridge is Leaking
There are few things worse than going to the kitchen to grab a snack and coming away with a wet sock. If water is pooling underneath and around your fridge, it is probably due to:
- A broken line leading to your water dispenser or ice maker
- The drain pan contains cracks or holes
- A clogged drain
