Default Refrigerator Repair

Can anyone recommend a good refrigerator repair person/company? I did a search and Beck's was the one that came highly recommended but one of the posts mentioned Mr. Beck died. I did try the phone number and it's been disconnected. So, I'm back to square one. Thanks for help!

I have used Beck's Appliance Repair and love them. I just called 352-245-3598 and it was answered by them. Try again!

I have used Beck's since Mr. beck passed away, great service. As for your current problem, if this is the ice maker on a Whirlpool french door unit, I just fixed ours with the hairdryer, that was 3-4 months ago, still working great.

Thanks for the phone number. I checked it with what I had and I must have copied it wrong. Yes, I did try again and left a message.

Slightly off topic, but I've recently been experiencing a strange phenomenon with a less than 1-1/2 years old GE refrigerator. For the first 1-1/4 years, the temps in the upper frig section were rock solid at 35 deg F. The upper section is set at 35 deg F, and I have a thermometer in it to keep a check on it.

Of late, early in the morning with no one entering it for hours, the frig section reads 41 deg F. It hangs there throughout much of the day, although infrequently there are times it does read in the mid 30's for short periods of time. I put two additional thermometers in the frig, and they both read essentially the same as the first thermometer. We pulled the food away from the walls of the frig, and made sure the vents were not blocked. There appears to be no issue with the door seals. The ice maker makes "dry" ice cubes and the freezer section is holding steady at 0 deg F. I vacuumed the coils section, which weren't very dirty, so I do not think they are part of the issue.

I don't understand why the frig section is suddenly acting the way it is. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Mr. Beck had a repairman named Dave. After Beck died Dave stayed on to keep the business doing for Mrs. Beck. Dave is a great appliance repairman. I have used him twice in the last 2 years. He is fair, honest and fixes the issue. Contact # is 352-795-4098

It sounds like something is interfering with the air flow to the upper section. Try a google search on this topic, include your model number. We had a leak from the freezer portion (Whirlpool) that ended up being a badly designed drain line. You have already done all of the items I would have suggested. Hope this helps.

Do NOT use The Villages Appliance Repair! I fought almost a year for a refund and still do not have it!
