Hey, you're in the appliance zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Refrigerator Category

Improvement Project:

How to maintain the refrigerator periodically, some parts in particular that need proper maintenance.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Vacuum (with plastic vacuum wand accessories)

  • Scrap wire (about a foot or so long at least)

  • Bleach

Guide:

Over the course of the use of your refrigerator, your refrigerator will require some periodic maintenance.

Caution: When dealing with any device that requires electrical power, make sure you take precautions before you work on it, including disconnecting the power.

With the above in mind, pay particular attention to the performance of the following maintenance:

  • Refrigerator coils.  Every couple of months or so, you should clean up the dust that

     

    inevitably accumulates on the coils of the refrigerator.  Depending on the type of refrigerator you have, you may gain access to cleaning the coils by either unplugging the refrigerator and moving the refrigerator away from the wall to get access to the coils from the lower back of the refrigerator or, alternatively, as may be applicable, removing the front base grille and then gaining access to the coils through the opening made by the grille removal.

As a means of cleaning, use a vacuum, with a wand attached, to suck up and remove all the the dust and other accumulated debris found on and around such coils.

  • Refrigerator drains and freezer drains.  The drains in your refrigerator, over time, will incrementally get clogged, requiring you to unclog such drains. The refrigerator unplugged, use any sort of a scrap wire to put through such drains in an effort to break through and otherwise remove any sort of a tangible blockage within such drains.  As a bacteria and algae preventive measure, right after you unclog or otherwise make sure the drains remain unclogged, pour about one tablespoon of bleach down such drains.

These are just some of the refrigerator parts that require proper maintenance that you should consider doing on a periodic basis to maintain the operability of your refrigerator.
