How to Care for Your Fridge in Less than 20 Minutes

Let’s face it — you’re very busy throughout the day. You have work to go to, groceries to buy, and homework to help with, so it’s understandable that certain household chores get put on the backburner. But what if we told you that you could care for your fridge in less than 20 minutes? Then there’d be no reason not to try!

Clean the Condenser Coils – 5 Minutes

Clean coils mean your refrigerator will run better. Use a vacuum and coil cleaning brush to get rid the dust and debris that collect on your coils. The special brush is able to get into the crevices of your coils and can also be used to clean your AC too.

Clean the Condenser Fan – 5 Minutes

If your condenser coils are at the bottom of your fridge, vacuum the fan near them. The condenser fan is used to blow cool air across the coils, and sometimes, dirt, pet fur, paper, and other debris can get sucked into the fan and stop it completely.

Clean the Gasket – 2 Minutes

It’s not uncommon for food to get onto your refrigerator gasket, especially if there’s been a spill. Leaving the mess there could cause the gasket to become damaged, resulting in repair costs. so wipe it down with vinegar or another cleaning solution.

Clear the Freezer Vents – 5 Minutes

If your vents are blocked, air can’t circulate throughout your freezer, and frost will start to build up in your unit. Move the food in your freezer away from the vents, and only keep it three-quarters of the way full to allow for proper ventilation.

Set the Temperature Controls – 1 Minute

Making sure the proper temperatures are set in your refrigerator ensures that your unit runs properly and your food is kept safe.

How to Fit More in Your Fridge & Freezer

Isn’t it so frustrating when you come back from grocery shopping and have nowhere to put the stuff you just bought because your fridge is so full? Or when you have people over for a party and have zero space to store the leftover food because of the same reason? Well, if you’re in need of some help, here’s you can fit more in your fridge and freezer.

Use Wire Baskets

While these are typically used for bathroom or desk storage, they work wonders in your fridge. Not only do these baskets help you free up space in your fridge and freezer by allowing you to stack items vertically in a small space, but they also allow you to easily see what you already have, so you don’t end up buying double.

Use a Condiment Caddy

Don’t you think it’d be better if you could take ketchup, mustard, and relish to and from your fridge if you could easily carry them at once? The Condiment Candy keeps all your favorite sauces together for easy storage and transportation. If you don’t want to buy one, use a cardboard, six-pack drink holder.

Use Freezer Shelves

If your freezer model doesn’t offer organizing shelves, put some in yourself. Buy any small, stackable shelves and place them in your freezer to create a ton more storage space. If you don’t want to buy shelves, take magazine files, lay them down horizontally, then stack them vertically.

Even if you can fit more in your fridge and freezer, if your appliance isn’t working, you’re in trouble — unless you call Speedy Subzero Repairs to save the day! We offer service within the hour for home on Long Island and Queens. For more information or to schedule a service, call us at 866-782-9376.

 

Comparing Fridge Styles

When you’re shopping for a car, don’t you look at several different models to see which offers you the most advantages? Well, you should be doing the same thing when you’re shopping for a refrigerator. While you’re comparing fridge styles, take things like maintenance and convenience into account.

Top Freezer

This is the most traditional fridge style, mostly due to the economical price point. For those looking for a refrigerator to fit your basic needs, this model is a good fit. The only downside is bending down to get food out of the fridge.

Bottom Freezer

These offer the same perks as top freezer styles, as well as some other benefits like drawer-style freezer door options and being slightly larger size than top freezers. They are also around the same price at top freezers.

Side-by-Side

Side-by-side styles allow you to get to your fridge and freezer with equal ease. While you get a bit more flexibility in how you organize your food, due to the in-door storage, you may have less general storage space due to the vertical style.

French Door

While this style can sometimes be less energy efficient, these models offer fancier features such as multiple freezer drawers and the ability to match kitchen cabinetry. A major downside, however, is that they tend to be larger so they’re not great for smaller kitchens.

How to Fix Your Leaking Fridge

Don’t you love walking into your kitchen in the morning to step into puddles of water coming from your fridge? Yeah, we didn’t think so. Since they don’t just go away on their own, you’d have the right idea in calling a refrigerator repair technician to come fix any leaks you have. But there’s no reason you can’t get a head start on figuring out what’s causing the problem yourself. Here’s how you can fix your leaking fridge.

How to Fix Your Leaking Fridge

Check the Seal

Sometimes leaks aren’t actually leaks at all. Sometimes it’s just excessive condensation caused by a problem with your fridge’s seal. Check to see if the gasket is damaged and letting air out of your unit. If it is, you’ll need to replace it.

Check the Defrost Drain

If you’re finding leaks inside your refrigerator, you probably have a clogged defrost drain. If you notice your defrost drain is frozen shut, you’ll need to inundate it with warm water to melt the ice and flush out the pipe.

Check Your Drain Pan

If your refrigerator is leaking on the outside, you may have a damaged drain pan. If that’s the case, water will spill out of the pan during the defrost process and out onto your kitchen floor. You’ll need to replace the pan as soon as you can to fix the problem.

Check Your Ice Maker

While it’s not as common, leaks can sometimes be the result of water coming from your ice maker. Check the water line and tighten all the connections to stop and prevent leaks.

If you still can’t figure out how to fix your leaking fridge, contact the professionals at Speedy Subzero Repairs. We’ve been providing Long Island homes with quality refrigerator repair services for 75 years. For more information or to schedule a service, call us at 866-782-9376.
