Save Money & Make your Refrigerator Last Longer!
You can reduce your electrical bill and get more life out of your refrigerator if you keep the condenser coils clean! The condenser coils are in the back of the fridge on the bottom. (The evaporator coils are behind the panel inside the freezer compartment. They are sealed and usually need no maintenance unless they freeze up.) If the condenser coils are covered with dirt or dust, the refrigerator uses much more energy to cool the food and has to work much harder, which can lead to a shorter life for your refrigerator. To clean the condenser coils, simply use a brush to clean the dirt and dust off the coils and then vacuum up the dirt. It’s easy and only takes about 15 minutes!
