You may not realize it right away but the hardworking fridge in your Chestermere home needs routine attention to continue functioning properly. Here are some ways you can keep it happy and healthy for years of efficient cooling.
Empty Ice: Ice absorbs freezer odors and forms solid blocks in the bottom bins of your fridge. To keep this from happening it is a good idea to empty the ice bins monthly and start fresh.
Inspect door gasket: Dirty and flimsy gaskets prevent refrigerator doors from closing properly and puts stress on motors of your fridge. You can clean the gaskets of your fridge with soap and water then dry them completely for efficient use.
Clean condenser coils: Condenser coils in the back of your fridge cool and condense the fridge releasing heat. If these coils are clogged or backed up with dust, it begins to waste energy and cost more. Every couple of months, it is a good idea to vacuum the condenser coils.
Level your fridge: Fridges that aren’t completely level often won’t close properly, this causes strain on the motors and condensation inside the fridge.
Replace water filter: To ensure clean water and ice, and to prevent clogs and leaks replace the water filter. Check your owner’s manual for the location of the filter and figure out how to pull it out. Get your new filter, and run a couple gallons of water through it to remove leftover residue.
