Refrigerator Disposal: When To Junk It
A refrigerator can be one of the most essential appliances that you own. It is one of the main focal points of your kitchen and when it stops working or needs to be relocated it can often be a hassle. If you’ve been holding onto a refrigerator in the garage or storing it in the backyard rather than disposing of it, you may want to consider calling a junk removal professional. Knowing when you should remove your refrigerator can be half the battle and by preparing for this eventuality you will be able to know when it is time to get a replacement fridge. Here are some of the top signs it’s time for a refrigerator disposal!
You’ve Noticed Strange Noises
If your fridge is starting to make an extra loud clanking sound or loud duds every time that the compressor is activated, this is a sign that the compressor may not be working correctly or that it is overworked. You could consider adjusting the thermostat but it’s likely that you’ll have to replace the appliance.
Signs of Condensation
If you’re spotting signs of condensation inside your fridge this is a good indication that your refrigerator door seals are no longer in working condition. If your fridge is leaking air it’s not working efficiently and this means that the motor will have to be activated more often which can lead to it wearing out quickly.
Your Food is Going Bad Quickly
If you start to notice that your food is going bad quickly this can be another indication that your fridge is warm and that your motor is working incorrectly. If excessive heat is coming from the underside of your refrigerator this can often cause your food to spoil and increase the risk of potential fire hazards. Check to make sure that the coils are clean and replace the fridge if excessive heat continues to be a worry.
