Detailed information of each component is found below.

  1. Compressor: The compressor is the main component that helps to circulate coolant throughout the refrigerator. It compresses the refrigerant gas and circulates it through the cooling coils, condenser, and evaporator.
  2. Condenser Coils: The condenser coils are responsible for releasing heat from the refrigerator. They are located at the rear of the refrigerator and use air from the surrounding area to cool the refrigerant and release heat into the air.
  3. Thermostat: The thermostat is the component that controls the temperature inside the refrigerator. It senses the temperature inside the refrigerator and then turns the compressor on and off to maintain the desired temperature.
  4. Evaporator Fan Motor: The evaporator fan motor is responsible for circulating air inside the refrigerator. It helps to keep the air uniform and cool by drawing in air from the outside and then pushing it back out once it is cooled.
  5. Evaporator Coils: The evaporator coils are responsible for cooling the air inside the refrigerator. They absorb heat from the air and then release it outside the refrigerator through the condenser coils.
  6. Door Seals: The door seals are responsible for keeping the cold air in and the warm air out. They should be checked regularly for signs of wear and tear to ensure that they are still providing an airtight seal.
  7. Ice Maker: The ice maker is responsible for producing ice cubes. It uses a combination of water and a freezing element to create the cubes.
  8. Water Inlet Valve: The water inlet valve is responsible for supplying water to the ice maker and other components of the refrigerator. It regulates the flow of water and is usually located beneath the refrigerator.
  9. Defrost Timer: The defrost timer is responsible for controlling the defrost cycle. It helps to ensure that the refrigerator does not freeze over and stops the compressor from running too often.
  10. Defrost Heater: The defrost heater is responsible for melting away the ice that builds up on the coils and walls of the refrigerator. It helps to keep the refrigerator running efficiently and prevents the coils from freezing over.

Honest Guys Appliance Repairs in Ottawa: Fridge Resources


Hundreds of satisfied Ottawa area customers.

So impressed with these guys! Rony quickly came and fixed our dishwasher... he even stayed extra time to run it a few times to ensure it was working. Very impressed with the amazing service and was blown away at how fair the price was. Would highly recommend!

UPDATED REVIEW: PLEASE READ In my previous review of Honest Guys Appliance Repair, I had ended my review with the following statement: " I guess we will have a dryer sitting in our living room until I can get someone else.......If you can sit around all day for no one to show up...then hell use these guys." SO THIS IS MY UPDATE: The owner of the company contacted me the following morning, apologizing and explaining the situation. He then offered to do the work himself whenever I was available. I told him that I was not available until the weekend. DID NOT MATTER...he would come out on my schedule. So on Saturday morning Rony came out. His professionalism was excellent. And his knowledge and speed of repair around my washer was unbelievable. From the time he entered my door until he left was no more that 25 minutes. Washer completely repaired and up and running. Before he left, Rony apologized again for the misunderstanding on his employee's part. When I offered to pay.....Rony would have none of it...He said that he and his staff wanted satisfied clients and he wanted to show his appreciation for me allowing him to make amends for the error. There would be no charge. I am telling anyone right now that this company is truly professional and skilled. They want to have satisfied customer and stand behind their name and the service they provide. I will 100% use them again and will tell anyone else looking for a great appliance repair company, that Honest Guys Appliance Repair is the company to use.

great experience with these folk! our dryer went on the fritz & I gave them a ring. A technician was scheduled shortly thereafter. Rony came by & quickly diagnosed the issue & informed us it would be a few days for the parts. A few hours later Rony called back saying he found the parts & could return to complete the job! After some on-site troubleshooting Rony got our dryer back up & running! Fair pricing, excellent customer service & a prompt visit ensured we will be calling again the next time an appliance goes son the fritz in our home!

Responsive and personable service. They know their stuff and worked hard to get the job done. Rony was great and answered any questions I had as he worked. As far as I can tell pricing is fair - have not done any comparison to other companies in Ottawa. Will call them for the next appliance repair job.

Called to get dryer service @ 9am and Rony was there for 1:15 pm and done by 2 pm at a great price!!!!
Excellent service. We decided to get a new washer instead of waiting for an expensive part and Lee was very helpful when we asked for advice on buying the new washer. He also provided some helpful info on how to prolong the life of our gas stove. Would definitely recommend this company,
Repairman showed up on time, was unable to fix the problem and suggestion was to buy an entirely new appliance. I have written to the company 5 times to ask for the name of the piece that was faulty with no response. I guess after you pay, service is non existent. Edit to add: I also texted the number to ask for this piece and no response so unless your phone and email went down..

Just the best! Lee responded to our inquiry about ‘no heat’ in our dryer. Our LG laundry set is near 25 years old but we were not ready to discard either one. Turns out it needed an igniter. The part was ordered and installed today. A pleasure to deal with such a polite, competent gentleman.
