Call Southwest Appliance Repair SA to schedule a refrigerator maintenance San Antonio appointment to keep your appliance functioning optimally. Your refrigerator is among the appliances that are used the most in your home. It might also be the largest energy consumer in your home. Ensuring proper maintenance for your refrigerator will enhance its optimal performance while reducing energy consumption. It will also extend its life. Southwest Appliance Repair SA can perform a wide range of refrigerator maintenance practices including the following.
Cleaning Condenser Coils
The condenser coils of your refrigerator should be cleaned at least two times a year. These play a very crucial role in removing heat from your appliance. They are the radiator-like, large coils beneath or at the back of this appliance. When dirt and dust cling on the coils, it makes it hard for them to remove heat. This increases energy consumption by your refrigerator. To avoid this, schedule regular maintenance for your refrigerator to have the coils cleaned.
When frost accumulates inside the walls of your refrigerator and forms up to half an inch in thickness, you should perform manual defrosting. If you don’t know how to do it or if you don’t have time to do this, call Southwest Appliance Repair SA. Our technicians will remove food from the appliance, unplug it or turn off its thermostat and allow frost time to melt down. They will turn back the unit on and allow it to reach the operating temperature before restocking it.
Cleaning the Refrigerator’s Interior
You should use a cloth to clean the interior of your refrigerator on a regular basis. This helps remove spills and crumbs from the walls and shelves of the appliance. The job becomes easier when you use an all-purpose cleaner because it takes on sticky spills and stains without causing elbow grease. Also clean the handles and doors of your refrigerator. To remove odors and keep your refrigerator fresh, deodorize it with a product that is meant for refrigerators.
Parts like water filter and ice maker may need replacement at some point. Essentially, water filter should be replaced after every 6 months.
