How to Get the Best Performance from your Fridge or Freezer

 

To get the best possible performance from your fridge, follow these basic maintenance tips to ensure your fridges provide you with many years of uninterrupted performance.

 

Keep the condenser clean
It is important to keep the condenser clean, as blockage can double the normal power consumption and lead to a reduced life of the fridge. If the condenser coil is not regularly cleaned, it will lead to major component failure.

Correct placement
Correct placement is vital to ensure your fridge operates in the manner it was designed to. Poor placement will increase the amount of time the cabinet operates, therefore increasing power consumption. It may also contribute to poor product temperature and could lead to product failure.

 

Don’t overload your fridge or freezer
An overloaded fridge or freezer will impact on the internal airflow, leading to large temperature variation among stored products. This can lead to some products being warm, whilst others can be frozen and increases the risk to food safety. Other results of overloading may include over consumption of power and shelf deflection or breakage.

Effective cleaning of stainless steel
The simplest way to clean stainless steel is to use water and a microfiber cloth. For more powerful cleaning, a mild detergent can be used with warm water. Glass cleaner is good for removing fingerprints and stainless steel cleaner can be used for staining or polishing. Remember to always dry the water off to prevent any water staining.
