Why hire a fridge repair & installation expert through Airtasker?
Let’s face it: fridges can’t stop working. After all, everyone counts on them to keep food from spoiling. But when they do stop working, you may need to think and act quickly. Where do I store the food? Do I get it repaired or buy a new one? Where can I find urgent fridge repair? Thankfully, Airtasker takes away these complications by helping you find a fridge engineer in your area in mere minutes.
When you book a fridge engineer via Airtasker, they’ll handle everything from fixing a fridge that won’t cool, to stubborn freezer doors. If it’s time for a new fridge, they can even help you set it up.
If your refrigerator needs are more complicated, say, commercial fridge repair or sub-zero wine fridge repair, we can help you find a reliable, competitively-priced Tasker for that, too. Tap the “Post a task” button on this page and save your food from going bad ASAP.

Top Fridge Repair & Installation related questions
Start by checking the power. Check the thermostat - it may need replacing. Then, make sure the vents in the back compartment have enough room for circulation. You can also try vacuuming the coils under or behind your fridge. If your fridge has a fan instead of coils, try cleaning the fan blades or replacing them if they no longer work. If none of these get your fridge to cool down, seek help from a refrigerator repair expert near you.
Once you’ve unpacked your refrigerator and moved it to your chosen spot, check to make sure there is a gap on each side. Make sure the fridge is level, too. Then, install the shelves and trays and plug the refrigerator in. Depending on your brand or model, it could take a few hours for the appliance to start cooling. No time to move fridges and check on its temperature? Book a fridge engineer or electrician to do this instead.
Right here on Airtasker! To start, tap the “Post a task” button. Fill out the form, including your location, appointment date, the details of the task, and budget. Tap “Get quotes” then wait for the offers to come in. Choose the Tasker that best fits your needs, then confirm your appointment. With Airtasker, there’s no need to put up an ad, or make lots of calls, or ask the neighbours for recommendations - a few taps or clicks, and that’s it!
It would depend on the model of your refrigerator, as some need more space to open correctly. Some brands make corner refrigerators that may help you save on space while still being able to use your fridge correctly. If you are thinking of moving your existing fridge into a corner area, it’s best to consult an electrician first to make sure you can operate the fridge safely in that new spot.
First, check the style of the refrigerator you plan on getting. Make sure it fits your needs and won’t bloat your electric bill. Make sure your fridge has enough storage space - you may need more space than what your current fridge offers. Remember to check the fit of the appliance as well, including counter-depth, clearance for walking, and the entry points to its future spot in your kitchen or dining room.
Airtasker can help you find available refrigerator specialists in your area. After you post a task, we’ll connect you with local Taskers, who will then review your task post and send an offer if they’re available. If you’re lucky, you may even be able to find someone available the next day! Since Airtasker asks for your location, you can minimise travel time and get a repairman to your door, ASAP!
What do fridge repair technicians do?
Airtasker’s fridge repair and installation services can cover a wide range of solutions, such as domestic fridge repairs, commercial fridge repairs, and even unique kinds of freezers. When you book a Tasker to handle your fridge-related needs, you’ll need to indicate the details of the task in your post. Please state the problem with your appliance, as well as its brand or model. This helps available and knowledgeable Taskers give a more accurate quote and prepare the right tools.
Tools and replacement fridge parts
Installing a fridge requires quite a bit of equipment, such as a dolly, screwdriver, pliers, drill, and a wrench. For repairs, you may also need a resistor unit and replacement parts like a gasket or condenser fan. The great thing about booking a Tasker to handle your fridge-related needs is that you won’t need to look for your toolbox or shop for replacement parts yourself - give your Tasker the details, and they’ll arrive with all the necessary equipment.
If you’re not sure what’s wrong with the refrigerator, your Tasker will need to assess the appliance before deciding to purchase any replacement parts for you. Is your fridge at the end of its life? Should you need someone to remove your old fridge instead, we have removalists who specialise in white goods.
Fridge installation typically includes unboxing the unit, moving the refrigerator to your chosen spot, assembling the shelves, and plugging it in. But some critical steps may need a specialist’s trained eye, such as levelling the refrigerator, making sure there is enough space on all sides of the unit, installing water dispensers (if any), and ensuring a safe and stable connection to the power supply.
Also, it doesn’t hurt to have someone do the heavy lifting and pulling, right? If you want an easier time installing your fridge, feel free to request a Tasker near you.
Our fridge repair service covers different kinds of problems, including fridges that won’t cool, doors that won’t close, leaking water, frost in the ice dispenser, and so on. Taskers can typically handle any of these common refrigerator problems, but they can work more efficiently if your task post details the issues you are experiencing. It also helps to know the brand and model, so tell your Tasker if you’ll be needing Samsung, Maytag, or Carrier fridge repair and parts.
Some Taskers can also handle exceptional cases, such as fridge regassing for older models that need it. If you have a commercial fridge, wine fridge, or need caravan fridge repairs, we can help you find a Tasker who can take care of those, too. If you suspect that your problem with the fridge has more to do with the power supply, you can also book an electrician or gas fitter on Airtasker. We also work with other kitchen-related specialists, such as plumbers and other appliance service or repair experts.
