Refrigerator Repair: Are You Ready For A Little Spring Cleaning?

Do you plan on creating a spring cleaning to-do-list for your household appliances? If you are planning to do some needed appliance cleaning, you will help them run more productively and efficiently because you are giving them the attention and the maintenance they need. Spring is a great time to give your appliances the love and the attention they need. The spring and the summer are the times of the year when your appliances will be working harder than usual.
When the children are home during spring break and summer break, your appliances will get tons of use every day. When the temperatures begin to rise, your cooling appliances will begin to work overtime in order to compensate for the additional heat that will arise in the air. It is important that you keep your appliances cleaned and well-maintained so they can keep up with the extra work that will be put into it.
If you are planning to inspect and clean your refrigerator during your cleaning spree, we have provided you with some cleaning and maintenance tips that we hope will help your refrigerator operate more efficiently:
  • You should check your refrigerator’s seals and gaskets if you are concerned about cold air escaping. If you think you have a problem with cold air not staying in your fridge, you should try cleaning the seals and gaskets with water and soap. If this does not solve your problem, you may need to have the door seals inspected and replaced by a professional.
  • Your refrigerator’s water filter should be changed every six months.
  • If the bar that separates your refrigerator and your freezer is hot, you probably have a problem with your condenser coils. The coils will need to be cleaned as quickly as possible. If you want to make sure the coils are properly cleaned, you may want to have them professionally cleaned.
When it is time to inspect your refrigerator and perform maintenance, we know you might feel confused or frustrated about what you should do and how you should do it. If you think you need a professional, please do not hesitate to contact us at Jerry’s Appliance Repair.
