Refrigerator maintenance is essential and most refrigerators need basic maintenance that you can do on your own. It will keep your refrigerator working like new and can significantly increase your unit’s life and efficiency.
Here are some things you can do to your refrigerator each year;
- Clean your cooling coils by vacuuming or dusting them. This will most likely require the grill grate or cover to be removed. You may refer to the user manual if you need help finding them.
- If your refrigerator has an automatic ice maker or water dispenser, remove or clean the water filter. Refer to your owners manual for the proper procedure as their location can vary.
- Clean door gaskets with a wet cloth to ensure proper sealing of the refrigerator. A solid seal will save you money and protect your food from spoilage.
