Frequently Asked Questions
If your question is not answered in this section, please contact Western Refrigeration team
No, it is untrue. Refrigerant R134a is still widely available but anyone handling it requires to be FGAS certified. (FGAS is a refrigeration governing body the same way Corgi was for natural gas and LPG)
Food Safety (Temperature Control) Regulations require that certain foods are kept in fridges at or below 8°C. It is recommended that they operate at between 2°C and 5°C. Temperature in freezers should be below -18°C
From experience good quality washing up liquid works best. Use it on a clean cotton cloth and rinse with clean warm water.
Yes. As all fridges only slow down the growth of bacteria, it is essential to clean them out at regular intervals.
This solution will only fix the problem as a temporary measure. If the cause of the ice build-up isn't rectified it will keep happening and you would have to keep manually defrosting it.
I have an (integrated) appliance and it can't be easily accessible for repairs. The appliance is covered by an insurance cover. Am I covered?
Most insurance policies only cover you for parts and labour for repairing the appliance and not for extra work in gaining access to the appliance (please see your insurance terms and conditions). If the repair agent can't easily gain access to your appliance then you may have to pay extra for another callout for the return visit.
My appliance installer has installed my appliances but the electrical cable and hoses are to short to pull the appliance out for cleaning. Is this okay for them to do?
No, as a rule of thumb all appliances should be able to be pulled out completely with all electrical cables and hoses still connected.
