Food Goes Bad When The Fridge Door Doesn’t Close Properly

When you close the fridge door, you want to be absolutely certain that it is completely closed. Sometimes, even when the fridge door seems closed, it actually isn’t. Even a little bit of air getting inside your fridge can be problematic. While there are things you can do to make sure your fridge is closing properly, there are also going to be times in which you need a fridge repair Toronto company.

Will My Food Go Bad If I Don’t Close the Fridge Door Properly?

fridge door openClosing the fridge door should create a seal that keeps the cold air inside your fridge, doing what you would expect cold air to do for your food and other items. The seal needs to be pretty much absolute. In other words, even a little bit of air getting in is not a good thing. Also, if a little bit of warm air is getting in, then that means a little bit of cold air is getting out, as well.

The warm air can certainly lead to spoilage problems with the food in your fridge. Losing the cold air can only serve to exacerbate the problem. The building up of condensation within your fridge can also force the compressor to work harder than it needs to. This can wear down your fridge over time, leading to serious issues with the compressor. At that point, fridge repair work can get a little more expensive. If the compressor dies in the middle of the day, you could be looking at the possibility of same-day appliance repair.

While we are only too happy to help, in terms of our fridge repair Toronto services, and while we are the most affordable fridge repair GTA company to be found anywhere, it doesn’t have to get to that point. If your fridge door isn’t closing as it should, there are a few different possibilities you can explore.

If The Fridge Door Isn’t Closing Properly

Believe it or not, but a lot of fridge door issues can simply come down to something like a slightly open crisper drawer, or a shelf that has fallen out of alignment. A buildup of dirt and grime on your refrigerator door gaskets is another potential issue. If those gaskets are covered in filth and gunk, you won’t be able close them properly. Cleaning the gaskets with warm, soapy water and a cloth is something you can easily do on your own. Some people would even tell you to clean the gaskets twice!

You can also attempt to replace the closing cam. This is a little more involved, compared to washing down the gaskets for the door. Still, if you feel as though you have adequate DIY experience, you can potentially replace this on your own. You will need a few tools, such as a Flathead screwdriver, and there are several careful steps involved. If you don’t want to take a chance, and there is nothing wrong with not wanting to go beyond your experience with appliance repair, our fridge repair Toronto experts at Express Appliance Repair GTA can help.
