Help Your Fridge Keep its Cool


Refrigerators have a thankless job. We entrust them with our prized perishables, expecting them to keep everything fresh and safe, never once asking what we can do for them. Think about it. How many times a day do you look inside your refrigerator? Three, five, 10 times? Now, how long has it been since you looked at its coils? Six months? A year? Do you even know where the coils are located? Given how little time it takes, don’t risk ruining your groceries and your health by ignoring your refrigerator’s simple needs.

Skip the Spoilage

The secret to refrigerator longevity is keeping the condenser coils clean. Because they are exposed to the environment, condenser coils should be cleaned at least twice a year, or more frequently if you have pets that shed. When these coils become coated and clogged, they no longer release heat efficiently, which impairs cooling, wastes energy and shortens the lifespan of your fridge.

First Step: Find the Coils

Before you begin this DIY project, be sure to unplug your refrigerator as it is never a good idea to work on an electrical appliance while it is plugged in. Look for your condenser coils under the refrigerator or running up the back—some built-in models even locate them on top.

Next, remove the grille along the bottom front or roll the unit away from the wall for coils on the back. Then, use a coil cleaning brush, which you can pick up from any hardware store, and/or a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to remove the dust, pet hair and other debris clinging to the coils.

Replace your grille cover and plug the refrigerator back in. Now, open the fridge, grab a cold beverage and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
