What You'll Learn

  • An easy, foolproof approach to troubleshooting and fixing modern refrigerators
  • The common refrigerator problems you’ll see on the job and how to deal with them
  • Basic refrigeration cycle and thermodynamic principles that you need to know
  • Specialized troubleshooting and repair of: single and dual evaporator refrigerators, three-way valves, split-phase and inverter-driven compressors
  • Introduction to sealed system repair
 
 

Add to Your Knowledge and Income

Dryers and washers are both fairly easy once you’ve mastered the Fundamentals. Refrigerators on the other hand add a whole other level of complexity. Not surprisingly, expertise with refrigerators is both the most in-demand and most profitable knowledge an appliance repair tech can have (okay, second-most after the Fundamentals).

Tackling the additional complexities of refrigerator troubleshooting and repair is the next step on the road to mastery. This course will make you a master troubleshooter of today’s computer-controlled refrigerators, and teach you the skills needed to handle the majority of repair scenarios.
