Significantly, every refrigerator unit should be cared for properly and maintained correctly to prevent unnecessary refrigeration repairs and problems from happening. The experts at Appliance Doctor, your Naples refrigerator repair company, shares some useful ideas on how you can maintain a good conditioning refrigerator in Naples, Florida:
Idea No. 1: Checking the door seals is a must.
Once there is a loose seal, the cool air will seep out causing energy waste, which then causes your refrigerator to function heavily than usual. Beforehand, make sure the seals are free from food residue by cleaning it using a toothbrush with water and baking soda solution at the very least twice a year.
In testing for the door’s sealing capacity, you can try the dollar-bill test. That is by attaching a dollar-bill on the door, half is inside and other on the outside. Once the bill slips easily, you might want to have it checked by a professional.
Idea No.2: Coils should be kept clean at all times.
The fridge will not function efficiently if the condenser coils are filled with dust. To check condenser coils, pull the machine from the wall that reveals coils on the back part, unplug the refrigerator, and then vacuum with the brush attachment. It is advisable to clean the coils at least twice a year.
Idea No.3: Right temperature.
Set and maintain the fridge’s temperature on 37 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit, while the freezer should be at 0 degrees (-18° C). It is recommendable to check its temperature periodically.
Idea No.4: Always keep the fridge full.
Refrigerators are designed to have “thermal mass”, or ‘lots of stuff’ to maintain low temperatures. You may use cool drinks and foods to absorb the warm air streaming whenever you open your fridge.
If you are a busy-body who does not use much the fridge or an eat-out type person and you have a big fridge, it is advisable to store a few jugs of water in there.
Idea No.5: Always be prepared.
Whenever power outage goes out, try to avoid using the fridge and always keep the door closed. If you can get the foods from the pantry, use it. A refrigerator’s unopened door can keep the food safe for four hours, while a full freezer can maintain its temperature at 48 hours, and half-full at 24 hours.
For safety purposes, commonly most people pull out the plug of the refrigerator from the wall outlet to avoid sudden electrical surges that might haywire or damage the unit.
Last word of advice: Do not use knives, spoons, or any way to remove the ice. It will damage the walls of the refrigerator, but you can endanger yourself also. Use water in melting the ice, though it may take some time, it is a safer and more convenient way of removing the ice.
