Your refrigerator is one of the many household appliances you have that you probably don’t have a whole lot of trouble with. But if you do, you simply call your refrigerator repair service in Horsham. The lifespan of your refrigerator can vary greatly depending on a number of factors including quality and use, so it can be difficult to determine if you need to call an appliance repair service or buy a new unit when trouble arises. Lucky for you, your refrigerator will give you some indications it’s on its last legs, so to speak. Here are a few signs that you may need a new refrigerator.fridge1


Typically, a refrigerator will last between 10 and 20 years and the older your refrigerator is, the more it will cost to have it repaired. In time, it will cost more to keep your old refrigerator properly functioning than it would just to buy a new one. If your refrigerator is more than 10 years old, it makes perfect sense to start saving up for a new one.

Freezer Issues

You want your freezer to stay cold enough to keep your food in a frozen state, but you don’t want to have to use a chisel to get to it. If the inside of your freezer is looking more like an iceberg, it might be a sign that you need a new refrigerator. Of course, the first thing you want to do is defrost your freezer and see if the problem continues. If so, then it’s time to take a look at that new Maytag or Frigidaire. Keep in mind that since most newer refrigerators have an automatic defrosting feature, your fridge could be old and in need of replacement anyway.

Spoiling Food

A refrigerator that takes longer to cool your food or is unable to maintain a cooler temperature is a waste of good food and a waste of energy.


If your refrigerator looks like it has just gone 10 rounds with the heavyweight champion boxer in the middle of a heatwave, it could be a sign you need to replace it. Condensation on the outside or inside of your refrigerator doesn’t always mean you need a new refrigerator, it could just be a problem with the rubber sealing.

What’s That Noise?

If you can hear your refrigerator running, especially if you are in the family room watching television, you might want to consider having it replaced.

Good Deal

If you see a flyer or other form of advertisement with real good deals on refrigerators, you might want to look into it if your unit is more than ten years old.
