A broken refrigerator or freezer is a major headache. When a dishwasher goes, you can at least wash things by hand. But a broken refrigerator inhibits the food you can keep in your own home. You’ll want to attend to the problem quickly, but how much will a refrigerator or freezer repair cost?
The average fridge repair cost is about $300, but it can run significantly higher. Let’s look at some common problems that can affect refrigerators and freezers and what their repair entails.

As you can see, many common refrigerator problems can have multiple causes. Refrigerators are complex machines and require the attention of a professional technician.
So how much does it cost to repair a freezer or refrigerator? It’s hard to say definitively because of the variables involved, but expect to pay around $200 at a minimum and as much as $1,000 if the problem is more complex.
At a certain price point, it may make more sense to purchase a new refrigerator. You don’t want to replace an expensive part only to have something else fail a short time later. It’s a good idea to defer to an expert’s opinion on this. A qualified technician can help you know when to replace refrigerator or freezer components and when to replace a refrigerator entirely.
Refrigerator repair is expensive, but the good news is you can use warranties to your advantage to protect yourself from such high costs. You can consider a refrigerator extended warranty to maintain coverage even when the original manufacturer’s warranty expires. You can also purchase a more comprehensive home warranty to cover your refrigerator and other appliances in your home.
Liberty Home Guard has many such plans available. For as little as a dollar per day, you can avoid being responsible for a steep bill if your refrigerator ceases to work. Use our website to request a free quote, or call us today at (833)-544-8273.
