Extend the life of your appliance with this easy refrigerator maintenance.

Purchasing a quality refrigerator is a great investment into your kitchen. Not only will it provide space to store your culinary creations, but it can also bring style and a unique look to your kitchen. To make sure your refrigerator lasts as long as possible, there are some easy maintenance tips you can follow to help avoid refrigerator repair.

Keep the Inside & Outside Clean

Keep your refrigerator as clean as possible on the inside and out. Routinely discarding old and out of date food items will help keep fresh food last longer. Take a damp sponge or cloth and wipe down the shelves and doors (inside and out). This will eliminate potential bacteria growth which will keep your family healthy and happy.

Conserve Energy

When taking things out of the refrigerator, make sure you are not leaving the door open for extended periods of time. This will cause the refrigerator to run to keep the items inside cool for long periods of time which can increase your electric bill and potentially cause food stored inside to go bad.

Clean the Condenser Coils to avoid refrigerator repair

When the condenser coils are dusty, the refrigerator has to work harder which can translate into higher electricity bills and a shorter life expectancy of the refrigerator. An easy way to clean the coils is to use a vacuum or broom to remove dust. You should try to incorporate this into your cleaning routine once every three months. Typically the coils on your refrigerator are located on the bottom or behind your refrigerator.

Change the Water Filter

If your refrigerator has an ice maker and water dispenser, it is important to change the filter on a regular basis. Typically the filter is changed once every six months but you should check with your refrigerator owner’s manual for the correct recommended time.
