Sealed System Repair Costs

  • Sealed system repairs to refrigerators are very complex.
    • The refrigerant is recovered
    • The faulty component repaired or replaced
    • The filter-drier replaced
    • A vacuum pump evacuates moisture, air and/or contaminants introduced into the system when the system was opened
    • The system is recharged with the correct amount of new refrigerant.
  • Repair of the sealed system can take anywhere from 45 minutes up to several hours to complete, depending on the nature of the failure.
  • Replacing an evaporator is generally a less time consuming repair.
  • Repairing a contaminated or restricted sealed system is the most complex repair and can take many hours.
  • Special tools and training are required to perform the above repairs; therefore, sealed system repairs are the most costly repair done to any refrigeration product.
