How to save Headaches and Money
Hello everyone! The name is TJ and I would like to bring you a few helpful tips to use for your everyday lives. Today, I'm going to give tips on refrigerators. You know, the huge, cold machine that seem to always have an ice or water issue. If you are not experiencing this, then you're in luck. But sometimes, it's best to be prepared for the worst than to hope for the best. First things first:
A refrigerator is a fairly simple machine to maintain, if you keep up with it. All refrigerators have fans with coils that need to be cleaned at least twice a year. To do so, you will need to unscrew the screws in the back at the very bottom. Once open, you will see why your refrigerator seems to be on life support.
Note: Make sure you..
A. Secure the power.
B. Have a Shop vacuum.
Once you cleared the dust and water, close it back up. Next, you go check water filter and air filter (if applicable). Water filters should be replaced every year and changing the air filters is literally like buying baking soda to keep the air fresh in your fridge, for the outside. I'm sure everyone has smelled stilled water before and it is not for the faint of heart. (BLEH!)
For machines with ice and water dispensers, it is very important that you check your trap and clean it routinely. I would recommend around Spring and Fall season, just before it gets ridiculously hot or cold. Calcium and water deposits can build up and cause your water and ice to taste your morning breath before brushing your teeth. (-Gags-)
Don't let your ice sit in the tray for too long! The reason being is it will cause the water line to freeze up, which will stop the making of ice and now you will either have to buy a new ice maker or try to thaw it out. Try to stay Proactive!
And there you have it, folks! There are other ways to help prevent your machine from becoming part of the junkyard pile, but I feel this is a good starting point. Please remember, if you need help with anything or need more info on this subject, leave me a message or a comment on the page and I will answer back as soon I can. Thank you for your time and I hope this helps!
Over and out!
