How to Maintain Your Fridge Properly


The fridge is an important appliance in our home. As with anything, there are some things you will need to know in order to maintain it efficiently and correctly. The best way to do this is by maintaining a regular cleaning pattern where you clean the inside of the fridge on a weekly basis while also taking outside measures to protect the sealant (the mastic) that holds your fridge together.

For this reason, I will be writing an article about how to properly care for your new device which should last you up until about 2-3 years after purchase. It's not meant as an instant solution nor does it magically stop any issues from occurring; however, if these guidelines are taken into consideration, your fridge should become more efficient, last longer and work at a better standard.

Over 30% of electricity consumed in the average household is from fridges and freezers so being efficient with your fridge can help cut down these costs significantly. If you already find any issue with your Samsung fridge, you should hire a professional to help right away to avoid further damage.

Many fridges have a water dispenser which allows you to refill your bottles straight from the fridge. This is a great perk as it saves a lot of time and effort going back and forth to the tap! If you do not use the water dispenser then that is fine too. However, I do recommend using it as buying bottled water every day can really add up on your shopping bill.

So here is a quick overview of how to properly care for your fridge:

The first thing you should always do is turn it off every time. Even if only turning it off for a few minutes, this can help prevent heat from building up inside. This will also build up the longevity of your device as well as prevent damages to its structure due to leaks or other buildup through continued usage.

The second thing you should do is make sure that there are no obstructions in front of the bottom grill where the air comes out. These vents really need to stay clear so that they can disperse hot air correctly, otherwise, it will create problems within the fridge allowing bacteria to form on your food. If this occurs then be sure to clean it with a disinfectant and avoid placing food there until it's dried properly.

Thirdly, try to keep the fridge door open for as little time as possible. It causes an increase in humidity within the fridge which makes it harder for the compressor to ventilate.

Be careful when loading (and unloading) your fridge. Make sure that no heavy objects are placed within its way or that nothing is placed too close together otherwise they'll block off parts where you need them. Heavy items should always be placed at the bottom shelf and only smaller items above. You should also never stack food too high inside as you might crush it or block off parts of the fridge where you need them to be.

Another thing to take into consideration is that if your fridge starts making any kind of noise, it's best to consult a specialist before getting rid of it completely. There are many factors that could have caused this disruption including corrosion within the internal structure, leaks anywhere or even hardware problems. If these aren't treated immediately, then they can lead up to bigger problems resulting in replacements being necessary. However, if you follow all of these steps then you are already halfway there to prevent these kinds of problems from occurring again.

So after reading this article I hope that you now have a better understanding of how to properly take care of your fridge. With a few additional guidelines and helpful information, following these steps will allow you to prolong the lifespan of your appliance.
