I recently purchase a coffee shop and found that the refrigerator is not cooling properly. One of them is leaking water and very noisy. I had the repair man changed the fan and replace coolant, still making the noise and not cooling at 41o. I also have two other fridges not working but was told that is good, just need some service. Do you provide service in Sacramento? What is the cost for service and do you offer free estimate since I have 4 to repair? I can be reached at 916-284-9654. Thank yo

We had a new oven put in 2 days ago, and the installer turned off the circuit breakers. Ever since he turned it back on my side by side has been making a clicking noise (like a relay). Then it will hum for about 30 seconds and stops and clicks again. Then it does it again a couple of minutes later. Last night I noticed that all of my freezer food is thawing. Seems like fridge is working but freezer isn't cooling.
