Every refrigerator has condenser coils which radiate the heat collected from its freezer and cooling compartments. Typically, these coils are located on the refrigerator’s back, or below, within its base. Efficient operation requires proper airflow through these coils. However, normal accumulation of dust and debris can obstruct this flow of air, limiting the refrigerator’s ability to radiate heat efficiently. As a result, the refrigerator will work harder and use more electric power to maintain its set temperatures. Without service to clean these coils, the longterm effects will include a shorter life for the appliance. However, regular cleaning will ensure good air flow over the coils, boosting your refrigerator’s efficiency and dependability.
Cleaning your refrigerator’s coils is a relatively simple task, which can be accomplished with a vacuum cleaner and a soft brush. However, this represents the single most important maintenance procedure needed for your refrigerator. You should always avoid placing paper, plastic bags, or anything else on top of your fridge, which could fall into its condenser coils and block their airflow. In most cases when that happens, you won’t become aware of the problem, until the next time you clean the coils.
If your refrigerator’s condenser coils are mounted on its back, dusting them annually should be sufficient. Base mounted coils need cleaning every six months, and more often that that, if they are collecting pet hair from pets which shed.
If your refrigerator’s condenser coils have not received recent maintenance, and you would like to schedule a professional inspection and cleaning, please call or or use this convenient form to schedule professional inspection and maintenance for all your household appliances.
