Fridge Repair FAQ
Is it cheaper to repair or replace a fridge?
First, check whether your appliance is still under warranty. If it is, the manufacturer may cover the cost of replacement parts and labour. It’s hard to find a better deal than free!
Even if the manufacturer’s warranty has expired, don’t hesitate to assert your rights as a consumer under based on the Government of Quebec’s legal warranty.
After that, it all depends on the exact nature of the problem, but an average fridge repair costs between $250 and $300. So, from a strictly financial point of view, repairing your fridge out of warranty is less expensive than buying a new appliance, even an entry-level one.
Is it worth repairing a faulty fridge?
Although repairs are typically cheaper than a replacement, other factors may influence your decision.
The “50% rule” is an excellent starting point. If your appliance has exceeded 50% of its average lifespan (12 to 15 years for a North American fridge) and the repair cost represents more than 50% of the purchase price of a new model, we recommend replacing it.
After identifying the current issue, your technician will advise you whether other components seem likely to break anytime soon and whether or not it your appliance appears to be worth repairing.
You can then adjust this benchmark according to your own values. For example, repairing an appliance rather than replacing it is a sustainable consumer choice that helps to reduce electrical and electronic waste. We now find that more and more of our customers choose to repair their appliances out of environmental concern.
How much does it cost to replace a fridge thermostat?
This common issue usually averages between $250 and $300 to fix (including parts and labour). This amount may vary depending on the exact model; parts for some brands are more expensive than others, while the complexity of the assembly for certain models may require more time during your technician’s visit.
