Tip & How-To about Refrigerators

Caution : Your Technician

If you have used the same technician for a while , and you are confident he will not " gouge " you , you are in great shape . However , finding a technician in this category , is extremely difficult .
For example : A tech comes to your house , and tells you " you have a freon leak and it should be recharged " . He puts a little ( maybe ) freon in , and charges you hundreds of dollars . First off , it is extremely ( ! ) rare , for a 2- any age refrigerator , to be low on freon ( except Amana , which is known for its' leak at the evaporator , where the copper connects to the aluminum coil ) . A while later , it still does not cool correctly , so you call him back . He comes back and says " OK , you now have a ** problem and it should be repaired , and you are still out the hundreds you paid previously .
I have yet to come across a refrig , from the factory , to be low on refrigerant ! I have found access valves , where a " tech " adjusted the refrigerant , still on the refrig , leaking . A good tech ALWAYS removes the access valve when finishing his/her work ! This avoids the possibility of a leak . If a refrigerator is low on refrigerant , it will stop cooling within the first year , which is a warranty repair . Not 5 - 10 years later ! Except Amana . Factories do not want their product to have problems , so , they do keep a close eye on the quality of their product ( such as leak testing , soldering quality , cosmetic looks , and any other issues demanded by the manufacturer , such as GE , whirlpool , Maytag , etc . ( not Amana ) .
Another problem , is the refrigerator control boards . Same thing . A tech , not familiar with the operation of the electronics , may tell you , you have a bad board , when he doesn't know how to check ( only that the control boards go out sometimes ) . He gets your money and a week later , same problem ! You do not get back the money you paid ( ! ) only maybe charged a slightly lower cost for repair ( different tech from same company who might be a little more knowledgeable on your product ) .
Another example is range control boards . Same situation . Replace board , pay lots of money , days later same problem , different tech finds different problem , pay a little more money .
A GOOD tech , will tell you " I am not familiar with this product " . He is the one you should try to keep , as what he is good at will be a substantial benefit to you . A bad tech , will just dig into the product , without knowing or being familiar with the operation , parts used , and their operation .
Be back later , to add or edit .
