Signs of Impending Appliance Failure

Appliance service repair San Antonio is something most people don’t think about until one of their appliances stops working right. Though this makes sense, it’s a good idea to keep our name and number handy so that you don’t have to hunt for a repair shop at the same time something is going wrong.

It’s also a good idea to learn some of the signs that an appliance is going to fail. In some cases, there will be enough warning time to budget for the upcoming service. Here are a few things to look out for:


Often, refrigerators give telltale warnings that they will soon stop doing their jobs. You may notice that on the hottest days, your food spoils more quickly even if it’s been kept in the fridge with the door closed. This isn’t just your imagination. It’s a sign that the fridge can’t keep up with the increased load. It’s likely that the seals are failing or that your refrigerator doesn’t have enough refrigerant in its system. A technician sent out to perform refrigerator repair in San Antonio will be able to fix either problem quickly.

Sometimes, your refrigerator will be louder about its problems. Loud or unusual clunking, grinding, or even barking noises are all signs that it’s time to call for repairs. Noises like these warn that something is wrong with the moving parts inside the unit.

Washing Machines

Washers may not give as much advanced warning as refrigerators, but you may get lucky and have problems come on slowly enough to prepare for washer repair in San Antonio. If you open up a machine you expected to be empty, only to find it already full of water, you have a leaky shutoff valve. This can often be controlled by turning the water off at the hookup valve in the wall – for a while. Schedule service quickly so that it’s fixed before it can turn into a gusher.

Other problems are, unfortunately, sudden. If the drive belt breaks, your washer will immediately lose its spin cycle. Problems with other parts stop it from agitating. When these things happen, call for fast service or even emergency repairs.

Dryer Vents

Clothes dryers can suffer some of the same problems as washers, but the most important part of a drying system may be the vent. Accumulated lint is a fire hazard. If the dryer is in or close to your house, a vent fire can burn the entire structure down. Our dryer vent cleaning services in San Antonio greatly reduce this risk, especially when performed on a regular basis.
