I had just went to the grocery store and bought a couple of hundred dollars worth of groceries when my freezer started to act up. I had a small chest freezer that I was able to put most of my frozen goods in, but I needed to put the rest at my neighbors in her freezer that she keeps in the basement. I wanted to get mine fixed as quickly as possible, so I looked for a company that does major appliance repair in Sacramento. I had never had an appliance break down on me before, so I was not sure who to call.
I looked at the different companies that service the area that I live in, and I was able to find the company that I felt was the best fit for my needs. It was not that the freezer was completely dead. It was still running, but it was warm rather than cool inside. I had no idea if there was something wrong with the thermostat, the compressor, one of the switches or coils, or even a timer. I did not even know what most of that meant, but it was what I was told could be wrong.
I knew that it would be cheaper to have it fixed than to go out and buy a new one, or at least I hoped so. When the repairman came, he checked everything and determined it was definitely a combination of the thermostat as well as a couple of the switches. I was just so thankful it was not the compressor, because that would have been the most expensive fix for me. As it was, it did not cost nearly as much as I thought it would, and I now have a working freezer again. It is actually running better now than it did before it broke down!
