Refrigerator Repair

You might be able to get by for a few days without other appliances, but when your refrigerator breaks down, you need it repaired as soon as possible.


With Candu™, finding a good refrigerator repairman is as easy as entering your refrigerator information and ZIP code into the Candu site. We help you find reliable refrigerator repair and parts for a flat fee to help get your refrigerator up and running again.

Common Issues

Some common refrigerator issues requiring repair include:

  • The fridge not cooling food to the proper temperature of 37 to 41 degrees Fahrenheit

  • Food freezing in the fridge

  • Frost forming in the freezer

  • Water leaking onto the floor

  • A leaking water line

  • Problems with the ice maker

  • A fridge that stops running after a move

Often, fixing these problems is a matter of replacing a few small, inexpensive parts. Sometimes, it’s simply a matter of replacing a door seal, making sure the fridge is getting adequate power, or even unblocking a vent or unclogging a blocked drain line.

The Candu Difference

One of the most stressful parts of having an appliance repaired is not knowing how much it will ultimately cost – especially when a repair ends up needing more parts or more man-hours than expected to complete.

That’s why we show you the upfront flat-fee price online. You’ll know going in how much your repair will cost, including parts and labor. And the work will be backed for 6 full months by the Candu Will Do Guarantee™. See details.
