Columbus Ohio Refrigerator Repair Company
A vapor compression cycle is used in most household refrigerators, refrigerator–freezers and freezers. In this cycle, a circulating refrigerant such as R134a enters a compressor as low-pressure vapor at or slightly below the temperature of the refrigerator interior. The vapor is compressed and exits the compressor as high-pressure superheated vapor. The superheated vapor travels under pressure through coils or tubes that make up the condenser; the coils or tubes are passively cooled by exposure to air in the room. The condenser cools the vapor, which liquefies. As the refrigerant leaves the condenser, it is still under pressure but is now only slightly above room temperature. This liquid refrigerant is forced through a metering or throttling device, also known as an expansion valve (essentially a pin-hole sized constriction in the tubing) to an area of much lower pressure. The sudden decrease in pressure results in explosive-like flash evaporation of a portion (typically about half) of the liquid. The latent heat absorbed by this flash evaporation is drawn mostly from adjacent still-liquid refrigerant, a phenomenon known as auto-refrigeration. This cold and partially vaporized refrigerant continues through the coils or tubes of the evaporator unit. A fan blows air from the refrigerator or freezer compartment (“box air”) across these coils or tubes and the refrigerant completely vaporizes, drawing further latent heat from the box air. This cooled air is returned to the refrigerator or freezer compartment, and so keeps the box air cold. Note that the cool air in the refrigerator or freezer is still warmer than the refrigerant in the evaporator. Refrigerant leaves the evaporator, now fully vaporized and slightly heated, and returns to the compressor inlet to continue the cycle.
Modern domestic refrigerators are extremely reliable because motor and compressor are integrated within a welded container, “sealed unit”, with greatly reduced likelihood of leakage or contamination. By comparison, externally-coupled refrigeration compressors, such as those in automobile air conditioning, inevitably leak fluid and lubricant past the shaft seals. This leads to a requirement for periodic recharging and, if ignored, possible compressor failure.

I want to thank Applianceman for doing such a great job on my refrigerator. They took their time to make sure the job was done correctly. He was even nice enough to take off his shoes before entering in my home. No technician has ever done that, and that means a lot to me. Thank you for being so respectful
Excellent service! My technician was professional and very knowledgeable.
Great experience! During the initial call they asked about the specific problem we were having to make sure they would have the most likely needed repair parts. We got a call the day before to confirm the appointment and actually called the morning of to offer a visit BEFORE the scheduled window. Once at our house, our tech, Karl was super friendly and efficient. He diagnosed and demonstrated the problem in a few minutes and made the necessary repair in less than an hour. Would definitely use again and recommend.
Had a fantastic experience with Joe who was able to advise me on my refrigerator problem. He was extremely professional and courteous and made sure all my questions were answered by the end of our call. Thanks Joe!

I had a very positive experience with ApplianceMan. I was scheduled promptly after making an inquiry. My technician was, Houston. He was on time, polite and professional. He explained what he was doing and the conclusion he came to. He had to order to parts to fix my stove. I will update this review once they come back out with the parts to fix the issue.
Had excellent service by John G. While the fix for my washing machine was cost prohibitive, John gave me a ton of helpful information. John was prompt, very friendly, extremely knowledgeable and thoughtful of my needs. I will definitely use them again in the future.
