Appliance Spring Cleaning: The Refrigerator Edition

Throughout this spring season, Appliance Rescue Service – the best appliance repair company in Dallas, Texas - will provide a series of appliance spring cleaning tips, designed to extend the life of your investment! So today, let's start with the refrigerator.

How often do you clean your refrigerator? Are you cleaning it properly? Follow these steps below to ensure everything continues to run smoothly and to avoid costly refrigerator repairs.

Step 1: Clean the Compressor Coils

This first step is one that many people skip completely! Twice a year, your refrigerator’s compressor coils – or evaporators as some manufacturers call them – need a good wipe down. Invest in a good coil brush (sold at most appliance stores) and quickly clear the coils of any debris or dust that might have floated in. Clearing away the gunk allows for the coils to run at their maximum efficiency.

Step 2: Throw Out Old Food & Condiments

When was the last time you used that fish sauce sitting in the door of your refrigerator? If you’re like most Americans, you tend to keep food items in the refrigerator long past their expiration. Give your refrigerator a good clean out and help it run more efficiently. Overfilling the refrigerator with food can lead to Dallas refrigerator repair because an overstuffed refrigerator runs overtime to keep the food cold.

Step 3: Wipe it Down

While wiping down the exterior of yoru refrigerator along with the shelves inside is an essential part of appliance spring cleaning, pay special attention to the gaskets. Sometimes food and spills can make the door gaskets sticky, cuasing them to breakdown and not seal properly.

Hopefully these spring cleaning tips will help you avoid refrigerator repair! Should you ever need Dallas refrigerator repair, call the experts at Appliance Rescue Service! Proudly serving Dallas, Plano, McKinney, Garland, and all of the DFW Metroplex.

Extend the Life of your Microwave with 3 Simple Tips

Microwaves are the workhorse of the kitchen appliances. We use them throughout the day to reheat and cook and generally forget how much we rely on them until they are broken!

 

The good news is that you can extend the life of your microwave with just a few simple changes:

 

Tip #1: Clean It Regularly

While this tip holds true for preserving the life of most things, it’s especially true of microwaves. Microwaves operate using steam and microwave waves to cook your food. When spills and food particles get left on the inside of the microwave, they interfere with the cooking process. The caked on food reduces the effectiveness of your microwave and may lead to microwave repairs. It’s also important to pay attention to the seal on the microwave door and wipe it down periodically.

 

Tip #2: Cover Food While Cooking

In the vein of tip #1, cover all food while you are cooking or reheating. Covering the food reduces the likelihood of spills and splatters, but it also helps prevent food particles from getting in the air and interfering with the microwaves ability to function. Microwave filters can get clogged with grease or food debris, one of the leading causes of microwave failure

 

Tip #3: Use Microwave Safe Dishes Only

Before putting anything in the microwave, double check to see if it is “microwave safe.” While some plastics are considered microwave safe, we do not recommend heating food in them. Some studies suggest they can break down in the microwave, unknowingly contaminating food. Others tend to melt, getting stuck to the microwave and causing permanent damage.

 

When microwave issues arise, do not attempt to take the microwave apart yourself and assess the damage. Call an experienced Dallas appliance repairman like Appliance Rescue Service for all your appliance repair needs.
