How To Clean Refrigerator Condenser Coils

Refrigerators
are the hardest working appliance in our kitchens and might be the
most neglected as well. Because they run 24/7, there are some basic
maintenance procedures that should be followed in order to help them
run efficiently and extend their lifespan. One of these often
overlooked procedures is cleaning the condenser coils. To quickly
clean yours in 5 steps, follow these instructions:

  1. Turn
    off the refrigerator and slide it away from the wall.
  2. Locate
    the condenser coils. On most refrigerators, they are located on the
    back of the unit, but some newer models now keep them behind the toe
    panel at the bottom.
  3. Brush
    the coils to loosen up the dust and dirt. Manufacturers sell
    specializes brushes for this, but you can use a small paint brush,
    pipe cleaner, or even an old toothbrush.
  4. Vacuum
    the coils. To completely clean these coils, you should vacuum them
    using your cleaner’s brush attachment. While doing this, be careful
    not to damage the fins or coil, as they are not cheap nor easy to
    repair.
  5. Plug
    the refrigerator into the wall and slide it back into its starting
    position.
That’s
all it takes to thoroughly clean your refrigerator’s coils. Even
though it is quick and easy, it is still extremely important you do
it once every six months for the life of your appliance.
