Join us as we take you through the timeline of a typical service call and repair by one of our experienced technicians. We want to provide you with a clear understanding of what to expect when you contact P.A.C.E. Appliance Repair to fix your broken appliance. In this particular case, a customer needed a Kenmore Elite refrigerator repair in O'Fallon, MO.
Issue: Kenmore Elite Refrigerator Not Cooling
The customer called from O'Fallon and explained to our customer service representative that her refrigerator was not cooling properly. It had stopped working overnight, and neither the refrigerator nor the freezer section seemed to be cooling at all. When asked, the customer mentioned that it was a french door Kenmore Elite refrigerator, and our customer service representative explained where to find the model tag and read off the model number. This allowed the technician to better prepare for the call. The appointment was scheduled, and the customer was informed that she would receive a text and email confirming the appointment, as well as a call when the P.A.C.E. technician was on his way to her home.
Cause: Faulty Compressor
Before heading to the scheduled call, the P.A.C.E. technician determined from the model number that this Kenmore Elite refrigerator was manufactured by LG. Knowing that these Kenmore/LG refrigerators have had known issues with faulty compressors, he made sure to have a replacement compressor and other necessary parts on his truck to complete the repair.
Upon arrival, the technician introduced himself to the customer and, after inspecting the refrigerator, quickly confirmed that the compressor needed to be replaced. He explained the issue to the customer and how he had diagnosed and confirmed the problem. He provided a detailed repair quote, and once the customer approved the repair, he was able to start work promptly since he had come prepared with all the required parts.
