Most refrigerators require simple maintenance you can do yourself.
It will keep your fridge running like new and can greatly extend the life & efficiency of your unit.
Here are a few easy things you can do every year.
- Clean your cooling coils by vacuuming or dusting them. This will most likely require you to remove a grill grate or cover. Refer to your user manual if you need help finding them.
- Replace or clean the water filter if your fridge has an automatic ice maker or water dispenser. Refer to your owners manual for the proper procedure as their location can vary.
- Clean door gaskets with a wet cloth to make sure that the refrigerator is sealing properly. A solid seal will save you money and protect your food from spoilage.
