All refrigerators, from the high tech ones to a small mini-fridge to a wine cooler basically use the same type of setup to keep cold things cold. They all have a refrigerator sealed system made up of a compressor, condenser, evaporator, capillary tube, and a suction line.
When everything works properly, the liquid refrigerant flows through the right parts of the system at the correct rate and pressure. Your refrigerator absorbs heat from warm food and does its job. It also removes moisture. As long as the refrigerator sealed system stays sealed and running properly, you have cold food.
Far more people experience food poisoning every year and then become victims of refrigerant poisoning. Perhaps the biggest reason you shouldn’t put off scheduling a refrigerator repair is the need to keep groceries at the correct temperature.
The FDA estimates there are around 48 million people who get sick from food borne illnesses every year. Food poisoning happens when infectious organisms like bacteria, viruses, and parasites get on food and multiply, then people ingest them.
One of the best ways to prevent and control the spread of those organisms is to keep food cold while you store it. Health officials recommend putting food in the refrigerator within two hours of receiving it and quickly chilling it to 3 C or below. Keep frozen foods at -18 C.
If your food can’t stay cold because you need refrigerator sealed system repairs, it goes bad faster, and eating it could make you sick. Minimize the risk by calling for our expert repair services.
