What is a refrigerator?

A refrigerator is one of the greatest inventions made by man. It is a box like device that keeps all food fresh, and makes all produce last for days at a time. In the last decade, refrigerators have taken the role of also being able to form ice cubes and even serve fresh cold water. The basic definition of a refrigerator would be a machine that keeps groceries chilled and keeps a cool airflow within itself to keep food fresh. Refrigerators come in many different models, some are French door models, and others are top to bottom (simple) models or side by side models. (Double door)

-To save you money and time and food, we recommend before you call to any repair technicians to please check all button/knob like controls to be in the correct place.

-A bad sealing gasket on a refrigerator causes loss of cold air which in turn speeds up the decay process of all groceries and even causes the buildup of ice inside the freezer which in turn gives many more problems. You can visually check door gasket seal conditions which are located around the door from the inside. You may check the bottom seal with a small mirror and flashlight. Door seals are magnetically held to the door frame and mullions. Bad seal gaskets usually happen from age, bad door alignment or warping. Make sure both doors are always parallel for checking door alignment. Door mis-alignment can happen from a leveling problem on the doors from excessive weight.

-Please make sure that refrigerator doors are not shaking and hinges are tightly spun to ensure safety and best functionality.

-For any uncomfortable odors inside the refrigerator, we recommend a light bleach wipe and then keep an open box of baking soda in order for all odors to be consumed. If odor is a smell of something burning then there is an electrical problem.

Strange Noises?
Many things can cause noise inside a refrigerator, some of the most common reasons are, a rattling or buzzing noise coming from evaporator or condenser fans. A whistling or warbling sound usually comes from the fan motor of the evaporator. A hissing or gargling might happen for a few minutes after the compressor shuts off.

-If any water is leaking from the bottom of the refrigerator, that means the drain pipe for the defroster is clogged in which case, it would need to be checked. The drain pipe may also be clogged if defrost cycle is inefficient in which case ice would form around the pipe. Leakage can also occur if water/ice dispenser is not functioning properly.

-If hot spots are recognized on the walls or doors of the refrigerator then the problem is related to the Freon Mullion elements in the skeleton of the refrigerator.

Leveling is important

It is VERY IMPORTANT for your refrigerator to be level in order to function properly. If the

freezer is not leveled during installation, the lid may be misaligned and not close or seal properly, causing cooling, frost, or moisture problems.

 

Refrigerator cosmetic parts cleaning procedure

• Wash any removable parts, the freezer interior, and exterior with mild detergent and warm water. Wipe

dry. DO NOT USE HARSH CLEANERS ON THESE

SURFACES.

• Do not use razor blades or other sharp instruments, which can scratch the appliance surface when

removing adhesive labels. Any glue left from the tape can be removed with a mixture of warm water and

mild detergent, or touch the residue with the sticky side of tape already removed.

Refrigerator, Freezer Care and Cleaning

CAUTION: Damp objects stick to cold metal

surfaces. Do not touch interior metal

surfaces with wet or damp hands.

Your freezer is frost-free and defrosts automatically, but

should be cleaned occasionally.

 

CAUTION: Freezer must be unplugged (to avoid

electrical hazard) from power source

when cleaning unit.

 

Cleaning the Inside of refrigerators

Wash inside surfaces of the freezer with a solution of two tablespoons of baking soda in one quart (1.136 liters) warm water. Rinse and dry. Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth when cleaning in the area of the controls, or any electrical parts. Wash the removable parts with the baking soda solution

mentioned above, or mild detergent and warm water. Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes,

abrasive cleaners, or alkaline solutions on any surface. Do not wash removable parts in a dishwasher.

CAUTION: Never attempt to operate freezer with out this shelf correctly installed as it will not have adequate air circulation to function properly.

Freon refrigerant cycle

The refrigerant cycle is a continuous cycle that occurs whenever the compressor is in operation. Liquid refrigerant is evaporated in the evaporator by the heat that enters the cabinet through the insulated walls and the heat introduced by the product load and door openings. The refrigerant vapor is then drawn from the evaporator, though the suction line, to the compressor. The pressure and temperature of the vapor is raised in the compressor by compression, and the vapor is then forced through the discharge valve into the discharge line and into the condenser. Air passing over the condenser surface removes heat from the high pressure vapor, which then condenses to a liquid. The liquid refrigerant flows from the condenser to the evaporator, through the small diameter liquid line (capillary tube). Before it enters the evaporator, it is sub-cooled in the heat exchanger by the low temperature suction vapor in the suction line.

Do I need routine maintenance for my refrigerator?

Yes. A simple annual maintenance can save you hundred of dollars in repairs. It also extends the lifetime of your appliance by the years.

Is it okay if I have a refrigerator in the garage?  
If the refrigerator is self-defrosting, the answer is no. Do not let the garage temperature drop to much below 50 degrees or else the oil becomes thick and can cause the compressor to break down which then would cost you hundreds of dollars to repair. On top of that, most manufacturers warranty do not cover refrigerator kept in garages.

What if I my refrigerator is really packed?
As long as all the vents are not clogged with groceries and the doors can fully close with sealed gaskets and. We recommend that it be packed a little over half full to ensure no food goes bad.

What’s the correct temperature for my refrigerator?
Your refrigerator should be from 36 to 42 degrees and your freezer from 0 to 8 degrees.

How do I dispose of my old refrigerator?
The law forbids disposing of any refrigerator with its refrigerant still inside. We recommend contacting a local appliance repair company or calling your local municipal department so they can pick it up and disposing of it for a small fee.

 Is it easy to add an ice maker to my refrigerator?
Only if the refrigerator has the wiring for an ice-maker, most refrigerators today do, all you need is the model number for the fridge and look up the corresponding ice-maker kit. We highly recommend that all additions and or repairs on any appliance be done by a licensed professional.

How much space do I need to have in the back of my refrigerator?
Always have a minimum of one inch of space between the wall and the refrigerator, regardless of what other companies might recommend, it’s always good to have room for air flow.

How do I change the seal around the door?
Follow the instructions that come with the seal. A person with moderate repair skills can replace the seal. You can find the correct seal with the appliances model number in various websites.

How do I pull the refrigerator away from the wall to clean?
Although almost all refrigerators today have rollers, we recommend acquiring the help of a second person and moving the fridge from both sides after all the food has been taken out of the fridge. Some fridges need to be tilted towards the back so the leveling legs in front are off the ground.

How often should I clean the coils under the refrigerator?
Once every year. We recommend a maintenance check once per year in which during that time the coils should be cleaned.

What do I do so that my shelves do not break?
Many refrigerators have fragile parts made out of plastics and other materials. We recommend that you do not overstock your shelves and never exceed the weight amount on the shelves.

What happens to the freezer during a defrost cycle?
What happens is that during the defrost cycle; the freezer temperature does increase about 20 degrees, which is quite normal and still keeps food fresh.

Should my refrigerator always be running?
Most of the time, it should not be running constantly, some of the reasons it may be doing so are because the door might be left open and the motor is compensating for the loss of temperature, dirty coils, light bulb might not be turning off when door closes, faulty thermostat or needs refrigerant liquid.

About how long does it take for a refrigerator to come to the point that it needs to be replaced?
Although some refrigerators only last a about a year while others last for around 20, the actual life expectancy of a refrigerator should be between 10 to 15 years.
