How to Keep Your Fridge Running Smoothly

Refrigerators come in an range of shapes and sizes. They can be tucked away in tight spaces, including dorm rooms.

Certain models are compatible with smart devices. You can monitor your fridge remotely, and troubleshoot problems when they arise. You can also control them with voice commands.

Noise

Refrigerators can produce a variety of sounds while operating, and some are more prominent than others. If you notice any of the noises below find out the cause and check for a quick fix prior to calling a repair company for your fridge.

Rattling

The fridge may rumble when there's not enough space between it and the cabinet or wall or if its sitting at an unlevel angle. This is a simple solve - all you have to do is make sure there's at least a few inches of space on either side and then adjust the fridge legs or leveling screws to raise or lower it accordingly.

Hissing

The compressor can make a noise when cooling your food. This is a typical sound that is caused by compressor fluid or refrigerant moving through the system. If you are worried you are concerned, track how often the compressor cycles. Contact a refrigerator repair service immediately in the event that this occurs more often than usual.

Squeaking

Fridges can be noisy when the fan or coils are filthy. If you notice a fridge making noises clean the coils and fan using a vacuum with a brush attachment or a rag and water, or use dish soap and water. This should be done twice each year, or more often if your refrigerator is older or used a lot.

Clicking

Frigs may also make click sounds that is usually caused by ice accumulation around the freestanding freezer (Lil.So) fan. This can be resolved by a manual defrost but is likely to occur again until the issue is resolved by a service professional.

The clicking can also occur when the fridge is shut off, so make sure to turn it back on in the event that this happens. If you have an ice maker connected to your fridge, this sound could be caused by it. Make sure to switch it off when you are not making use of ice frequently.

The hum of your refrigerator is normal, and it may be louder at certain times of the day, or following large quantities of stock or freezing operations. The refrigerator is working harder to keep your food cool, which means it has to work faster. This isn't an indication of any issue.

Dust

Household dust is an ideal habitat for dirt, bacteria and other microorganisms, as well as traces of chemical exposures that are commonplace in the household. The tiny particles can be inhaled and elicit allergic reactions, and freestanding freezer provide a perfect environment for microbes to thrive including those that could cause infections when they come into contact with a wound.

Cleaning a refrigerator freestanding freezer is impossible but regular cleaning can help reduce dust and ensure an even temperature. A dirty fridge wastes energy because it overheats and is inefficient. If you suspect that your refrigerator is making louder noises than normal, or is operating at a high rate of energy consumption due to its overwork It's probably time to call in the professionals.

Dust does not drift into the air from the outside as it is thought to be. It contains resuspended dirt from your home, which can be contaminated by lead or other toxicants. It also contains mold, pollen, and car exhaust. It also has pollutant residues from the past, such as DDT that were banned decades ago.

Certain compounds, like flame retardants, such as decabromodiphenylether are able to volatilize and enter the air, however the majority of chemicals in dust in the house are transferred directly from one thing to another for example, by knocking fibers and minute bits of plastic off of electronic equipment. High-molecular-weight substances, such as surfactants used in cleaners and paint strippers, also migrate directly into dust.

A soiled refrigerator can affect your health, in addition to contaminating food. It can harbor allergens like pet dander or cockroach droppings that can trigger asthma attacks and allergies. It also contains bacteria spores like staphylococcus aureus, which can cause infections if they make their way into wounds that are open.

Researchers have discovered that a variety of health conditions can be traced to contaminated dust, from cancer to cardiovascular disease to leukemia and inflammatory intestinal disease. A recent study revealed that the homes of children who were diagnosed with leukemia were more likely to have higher levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons the PBDEs, and PCBs in their dust than the homes of healthy kids.

Condenser Coils

When refrigerators run properly, the coils that are on the front and back of the appliance are supposed to disperse heat generated by the compressor. However, when these radiator-like components are covered in pet hair, dust, or lint, the compressor will work overtime trying to cool the fridge and will eventually wear down the appliance. It's important to keep your coils clean.

Before you begin, disconnect and shut off the power source of your refrigerator. This will lower the chance that you or your family members could be electrocuted while working on the appliance. It's also recommended to wear a protective mask if you are sensitive to dust. You will then need to find the coils. They are usually located at the back of the refrigerator or, in some cases, at the front and base. Refer to the manual for your fridge or contact the manufacturer if aren't sure where they are.

After you have located the coils, you will need to remove the access panel if you have one. Then, alternate between vacuuming the coils with a narrow hose attachment and then brushing them with a condenser brush for cleaning the coils. It is essential to be patient when doing this to avoid bending or damaging the coils. Replace the kick panel or put the refrigerator in place, and plug it in.

You can hire an expert if you're not comfortable doing it yourself. But it's much cheaper and less trouble to keep up with the routine of cleaning to stop the problem from occurring in the first place.

Maintenance

Refrigerators are powerful appliances that work all day to cool down your food. To help them do their job well they require regular maintenance. Simple preventive maintenance can keep your machines running smoothly for many years.

One easy thing to do is to clean the door seals. The gaskets may become filled with jelly and other sticky food items, allowing cool air to escape through tiny holes. Clean them off by putting baking soda and warm water on a sponge or toothbrush every few months.

Another place to check for issues is the fan in the back of the refrigerator. It can become noisy when it's blocked by paper, insulation or even mouse (gasp). Unplug the refrigerator remove all the shelves and remove any removable parts. Vacuum cleaners equipped with connections for hoses are a great option to clean the coils and the area around them. Be sure to turn the fridge back on when you're done.

It is best to refer to the owner's manual for specifics about where to find the coils and the fan and what cleaning tools you'll need. You should also go through the warranty to make sure you know what's covered.
