Biggest Mistakes You Can Make with Your Freezer

We’re guessing that when it comes to your freezer, you don’t think there’s a way you can do things wrong. However, that’s not exactly true. There are a lot of little things you can do wrong when it comes to how you treat your freezer. To skip the consequences, make sure to avoid the biggest mistakes you can make with your freezer.

Biggest Mistakes You Can Make with Your Freezer

Your temperature is too high.

Your freezer should be kept at a max of 0°F, sometimes even less than that. Anything above 0° will cause your freezer to not function properly and not keep your food frozen.  

Your freezer is too empty.

When you have a good amount of food in your freezer, it keeps the cold air inside when you open it. An empty freezer allows colder to escape and makes your unit work harder than it has to stay at a consistent temperature.

You lose food in your freezer.

If you end up finding random items of food in your freezer, you’re not packing things right, and that can lead to a big mess.

You’re freezing food too late.

The sooner you freeze food, the fresher it will stay. As soon as you’re done cooking something and it has cooled, put it in the freezer to maintain its freshness.

You’re defrosting food at room temperature.

Taking food straight out of your freezer and thawing it on your countertop can allow bacteria to grow as the food warms. Instead, let food thaw out in your refrigerator.

While it’s not rocket science, maintaining your freezer is always easier with a little help. Speedy Refrigerator Service is your go-to on Long Island and in Queens for top quality refrigerator and freezer repairs. For more information or to schedule a service, call us at 866-782-9376.

Heading Back to School with Help from Speedy

Back-to-school time means a lot of things for your family. For the kids, it probably means that the summer fun is over, and they’re a little sad to sit in a classroom all day again. For Mom and Dad, it probably means that you’ll have an eight-hour break from your little pride and joys each day. Thing is, your back-to-school mornings can be made or broken by your refrigerator. If you don’t really see why, let us explain.

Back-to-school time means more meal preparation.

Kids can eat… a lot. You’ll need to spend plenty time each morning making healthy breakfasts and lunches for your kids to make sure they’re getting the proper nutrients from the food they’re eating.

Back-to-school time means after-school activities.

Soccer practice, dance classes, chess tournaments — the list goes on.

Wine Cooler in Kitchen | Refrigeration Service Nassau County

How to Fix Your Wine Cooler

When you’re a frequent party host, you learn very quickly that all it takes to have a good time is good company and good wine. But if your wine fridge suddenly goes on the fritz, you may be left with warm Pinot Grigio and salty guests. That’s when you should call Speedy Refrigerator Service to help fix your wine cooler.

How to Fix Your Wine Cooler

If Your Wine Cooler Won’t Cool

  • Check that the thermostat is set to the proper temperature. If it’s set to the correct temperature and your unit is still not cooling, you may have a faulty thermostat. You should call Speedy for a quick replacement since we stock 99% of parts in our ‘warehouse on wheels.”
  • Check that the door is fully closed and there is nothing wrong with the gasket. If it’s torn or worn down in any areas, it will let cool air out of your unit. To fix your wine cooler, you’ll need to have the broken gasket replaced.

If Your Wine Cooler is Too Noisy:

  • Check how much space is around your cooler. If it is too close to a wall and doesn’t have enough ventilation room, it could work harder to function, producing more noise than necessary. You should aim to have a few inches of space on each side of your unit to avoid this.

If Your Wine Cooler is Leaking:

  • Check for air leaks. These can cause extra moisture to build up in your wine cooler and lead to water leaks. You’ll need to fix the air leaks to stop the problem.
  • Check your drain pipe. If there is a clog, condensation has nowhere to go and can leak back into your unit. Call Speedy to unclog the pipe in order to get water draining properly again.

These are only some of the reasons your unit could be acting up. For a better diagnosis on how to fix your wine cooler, call Speedy Refrigerator Service. We’ve been serving Long Island, Queens, and NYC since 1942, so you know you can count on us for quality service at affordable prices.

Refrigerator Technician | Queens Frigidaire Refrigerator Repair

A Day in the Life of a Speedy Tech

I get to work bright and early, and head into the main office to ask our customer service rep what repairs I’ll be heading out on today. She says that a woman in Rockville Centre just called us and doesn’t know why her refrigerator is leaking. I take the information down, go to my Speedy Refrigerator Service truck, and start driving.

Upon arriving at the woman’s house, I can tell she’s very distressed over this issue, but also happy that I arrived so quickly. She tells me that she has to pick up her kids at school later and is worried she won’t make it in time if the fridge keeps leaking water.

“Ma’am, don’t you worry. We’ll have this fixed in no time.

I’ve seen this problem plenty of times and immediately check the drain pipe. As I suspected, it’s clogged with food particles. I explain this to her, flush out the drain, and assure her that her fridge won’t leak anymore. She thanks me and, upon my telling her the cost of the repair, hands me a printed out coupon from our website to save $25. I head back out to my truck and she’s off to pick up her kids.

I get another call from our customer service rep that a man in Long Beach called us about a torn door gasket. “I’m on it.” I get to the man’s house and he shows me that the gasket seal on his freezer door has a large tear and that his freezer is basically one giant ice block. I explain to him that we’ll have to replace the seal, and he says “Oh gosh. I’m going to have to order that and wait for it, aren’t I?”

I tell him, “No, sir. I’ve got it right in my truck. At Speedy, we stock 99% of parts in our warehouse on wheels. Let me just run and grab it for you.”

I get the part from my truck, return to the house, remove the damaged gasket, and replace it with the new one. The man is happy to see that the repair is already completed.

“You know, other guys would’ve taken a week to get this done. You guys at Speedy really know your stuff — you just can’t beat that service!”

I smile. “Sir, when it comes to refrigerator and freezer repairs, Speedy has you covered.”

What Happens When You Don’t Call Speedy

When there’s a problem with your refrigerator, you have a few options in your next course of action. You can leave it alone and hope it goes away — spoiler: it won’t. You can call a random refrigerator repair service you found online. Or you can call Speedy Refrigerator Service. Only one of those options is the right option — calling Speedy. However, if you don’t call Speedy, here’s a preview of what your experience will be like.

If You Leave the Problem Alone:

  • It will get worse — plain and simple. It’s not like when you get sick and your body heals itself. Your refrigerator relies on you to keep it working well, so if you ignore problems, they’ll only get bigger.
  • That leak will turn into puddles, the frost will turn into ice, and the few extra dollars on your energy bill will turn into much more.
  • If you don’t call Speedy and you let problems lie, eventually, your fridge will break down entirely.

If You Call Some Other Company:

  • You’ll get quoted an initial price.
  • You’ll waste an entire day (or more) waiting for your repairman to show up to home your home.
  • He or she will tell you that they have to wait for a part to come in before they can get your refrigerator fixed.
  • After waiting at least a week for that part to get there, you’ll be told to pay a different price, probably much higher than the one you were originally given.
  • In short, you’ll simply have an experience that would’ve been so much better if you had called Speedy.

When you call Speedy Refrigerator Service, we’ll send a trained technician to your home within an hour of your contacting us, and we’ll be able to get your fridge back up and running right away since we stock 99% of parts in our “warehouse on wheels.” With over 75 years of experience, you can trust us with all your refrigerator and freezer repair needs. For more information or to schedule a service, call us at 866-782-9376.
