Tips from the local refrigerator repair man help extend the life of the appliance and keep it working efficiently

Toledo OH – Local refrigerator repair man, Dave Smith, reminds consumers to give their refrigerator a little TLC to improve performance and efficiency. The refrigerator is an essential home appliance that is often taken for granted. One of the best ways to keep the refrigerator healthy is to periodically clean the condenser coils.

Many appliance repair tasks can be hazardous for the homeowner to attempt, but most are capable of safely cleaning condenser coils. The job takes less than half an hour so there is no need to remove the food which will stay cool a few hours while the unit is unplugged. Cleaning the condenser coils twice a year can prevent over two thirds of service calls.

The condenser coils are usually located on the back or at the bottom of the refrigerator. The owner’s manual should provide information about accessing and cleaning the condenser coils. When the coils become clogged with dirt, dust and hair, they will no longer be able it dissipate heat effectively. This will cause the refrigerator to run longer and work harder to keep food cold.

This simple refrigerator maintenance task only requires a vacuum and a coil cleaning brush. Homeowners can purchase a coil cleaning brush at a local appliance parts store or they can order it at Dave Smith’s online appliance parts store (http://davesmithappliance.partsquik.com/).

Those who are not able to perform this task can contact Dave Smith Appliance Repair. A local refrigerator repair specialist will perform preventative maintenance to keep the appliance running smoothly. All Dave Smith appliance service technicians are licensed and certified to provide quality service.
