Clean Refrigerator Coils

Home Maintenance | April 26, 2019

Refrigerator coils

It is essential to clean your refrigerator coils for the smooth operation of the unit. Dirt and debris usually accumulates on the coils, and if these are not removed, they will significantly hamper the efficiency of the refrigerator. Over time, all kinds of dust, grease, and dirt get stuck to the coils behind your refrigerator.

"Before you start the actual cleaning process, it is a good idea to unplug the refrigerator from the power source to avoid any electrocution or any other related accidents."

Then you need to identify where the coils are. In most cases, at the bottom of the rear of the refrigerator or in front below the front door. If they are located at the back of the fridge, you will have to roll over the unit away from the wall, and check for horizontal lines of the grille vents. Unsnap the grille vent so that you have access to the coils. With the grille out of the way, you will see thin metal bars spaced about one inch apart. Those are the coils you are supposed to clean in the following steps.

That is how you clean the refrigerator coils the right way so that the fridge can work more efficiently, and to avoid regular appliance repair calls.
