Replacing the motor in the refrigeration unit is one of the most common malfunctions. It is clear that you need Poway refrigerator repair. Technically, this spare part is called a motor compressor. Despite the fact that the motor is a non-separable element, it consists of two parts: a compressor and an electric motor. That is why refrigerators are called compressor refrigerators.

The first sign that indicates that the refrigerator motor is out of order is its instant shutdown. Basically, the break between switching on and off is no more than 10 seconds. It also happens that the refrigerator is simply “silent” or starts to turn off after heating. In any case, a qualified specialist will need no more than 5 minutes to understand that the cause of the malfunction is in the motor.

When replacing such a part, it may also be necessary to replace the relay. This can happen because the old starting relay will not be suitable for the new motor. It is also necessary to change the filter drier. This is a small part, which is a zeolite cartridge, and must be changed during any overhaul of the unit. An overhaul is the repair of the refrigerator, which requires its complete disassembly, as well as charging with refrigerant.

Such work should be trusted only by experienced craftsmen because if you try to do it yourself, you can further harm your device. If the specialist is not competent, and he forgot to replace the filter, the motor may not work for long. Often masters do not want to replace the filter, as they are too lazy to weld the most difficult joint when replacing the compressor.

After replacing the motor in the refrigerator, it is necessary to fill it with freon. First of all, you need to vacuum, and then fill the refrigerator. It is very important to observe the refrigerant dosage and make sure that there is no excess gas in the system. This can be done using a special vacuum filling station.

After the repair, the master must bend and seal the refrigerator tube. We have specialists in repairing household appliances today! Call a professional Poway Appliance Repair Service Center technician by phone or book your service.
