3 Signs Your Refrigerator Needs Replacing, Honolulu, Hawaii

Although your current refrigerator might still be functioning, how well is it doing its job? Many homeowners mistake a working appliance for an efficient one and unknowingly spend more money than necessary to cool and freeze their food. Here are a few signs to help you evaluate whether your fridge is worth keeping.

Why Should I Replace My Refrigerator?

1. It’s Always Running

If the condenser coils, located on the back or across the bottom of the appliance, are clean and the fan isn’t cycling off, it may be time for a new fridge. Have a professional test for complications that might be causing the issue, such as compressor failure, a refrigerant leak, and electrical problems. If the issue can’t be easily rectified or costs more than 50% of a new unit to repair, consider upgrading because this problem will continue to waste money and energy.

2. It Has Noticeable Condensation

refrigeratorCondensation on the exterior of refrigerator doors is the result of the cool air inside drawing moisture out of the warm air outside. Sometimes, this is the result of opening and closing the door too often. However, it might also be the sign of failing door seals. While these issues can be corrected, the problem could persist if there’s something wrong with the temperature controls, and it might start to impact how well your food is stored.

3. It’s Outdated

Depending on the style of your refrigerator, it can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years. You could keep putting money into repairs, but your old machine might not be as efficient as newer models. As this appliance is one of the most energy-hogging systems in your home, installing a newer model can help lower the utility bills. You’ll also recoup your investment by cutting out those frequent repair bills.
