Refrigerator Maintenance Tips

By maintaining your fridge, you can be confident you will not need another one for a long time. The following tips take hardly any time to complete, so make sure to do them on a regular basis.

Ensure Correct Temperature

You do not want your refrigerator working any harder than it has to. You also do not want food spoiling. Make sure your fridge remains set between 38 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Your freezer should be set at zero degrees Fahrenheit.

Check Seals Often

The seals around your refrigerator door ensure the cold air does not escape and make your kitchen cold. Additionally, faulty seals will cause your fridge to work harder, and it may break down sooner. Replace the seals if you begin noticing drafts.

Keep It Full

The only way for refrigerators to retain low temperatures is for them to maintain thermal mass. This means there need to be objects inside to absorb the cold temperature. If your fridge has a lot of empty space to accommodate, put a few bottles of water in there to absorb the coldness.
A little maintenance goes a long way. If you require refrigerator repairs, call Mountain Vista Appliance.
