With over 20 years of experience, Atlanta Appliance Repair Company ServiceMAX is your company to get the job done right the first time!
The first thing that you need to do when your refrigerator malfunctions is to consult the manual. While many find it hard to believe that an owner’s manual could have simple, accessible instructions that could sort out serious malfunctions, it happens all the time. For instance, if your refrigerator does frequent start-stop cycles, your manual could tell you that dirty compressor and condenser coils could be the cause. If your fridge seems to leak water, your manual instructs you to check the shut-off valve. Every once in a while, though, the manual will have nothing to offer other than to recommend that you call in a qualified service technician.

While it can be a comforting thought to have qualified technicians a phone call away, it’s always a good idea to know how to take care of your refrigerator well and to minimize the chances of malfunction. With the tips below, you’ll help your fridge last years without service. You’ll save energy in the process, too.
Here are 5 tips to help you make your refrigerator last longer and cost less to run.
When it gets cold in winter
If you live in a place where the temperatures drops any lower than 40°F in winter, it’s never a good idea to set a frost-free refrigerator in an unheated area. Not only will the compressor have trouble running for extended periods of time, you will have trouble with water freezing in the freezer’s drainpipes, too.
Prep the icemaker before you go on vacation
When you need to leave home for an extended period of time, it’s always a good idea to turn the refrigerator’s ice maker off (the refrigerator itself should remain turned on, though). When an unused icemaker as the left running, water can freeze in its pipes.
Cleanliness wins you points
A refrigerator works by using a compressor and compressor coils to pump the heat within the enclosure out . When these parts on your refrigerator have a thick layer of dust on them, their ability of shed their heat begins to be severely compromised. You’ll end up with an overworked compressor that costs a lot to run and that burns out earlier than it should. Keeping your refrigerator’s compressor and coils as clean as possible can really pay off.
Make sure that you locate your fridge on a hard surface
A refrigerator needs to be placed on a hard surface. If you need to place the appliance in an area of the house with carpeting, you’ll need to find a sheet of plywood or Formica to put it on. Carpeting can trap heat close to the coils at the bottom of the fridge and also slow down circulation.
Don’t turn the thermostat too low
Refrigerators are meant to maintain their internal temperature at 37°F. While it’s possible to make the thermostat go much lower, it tends to waste energy to do so. It’s a good idea to buy a thermometer, leave it in your refrigerator and find out how cold it actually gets in there. If it’s too cold, you can turn the thermostat up and save on your electricity bills.
