Refrigerator Tips and Repair by Allkind Appliance Calgary

  • Refrigerators require condenser coils to be periodically cleaned or the efficiency will be negatively affected and the life of certain components such as the compressor will be shortened. The condenser on older models was previously located on the back of the fridge. However, on newer models you will typically locate the condenser at the base of the fridge, which you can access by removing the bottom kick plate (trim).  However, some new models do require pulling the fridge out to access the condenser from the rear. The cleaning is subject to your home environment. For example, those homes with pets will require more frequent cleaning. It is also a recommended to consult the owner’s manual as to the proper procedure to clean these coils or any other components. If you are not comfortable doing such maintenance and repair it is advisable to bring in a technician periodically as per your owner’s manual.
  • Many of today’s fridges have filters for their ice and water dispensers. These filters need to be replaced at the recommended intervals in order to maintain their effectiveness as they may become a health hazard if left in beyond their intended life span.
  • The temperature of the fresh food compartment should be maintained at 3 to 5 degrees Celsius or 36 to 41 degrees Fahrenheit.
