When the pandemic began and some of us were stuck at home, I made a short video about cleaning your refrigerator coils. This is a simple process and something that should be done at least once a year, if not twice a year. When your refrigerator is running, the fans pull air through the lower grille. This helps exhaust the heat being pulled from within the refrigerator and freezer. But, behind that grille may be dirty coils. If not cleaned periodically, your refrigerator will not be able to cool properly. If not cleaned periodically, the trapped hair, dust, and lint will insulate the coils, trapping the heat, and restricting air flow.
📌 You can extend the life of your refrigerator by cleaning the coils once or twice a year.
These coils can be difficult to clean. They don’t have sparkle and shine when you’re done. The main objective is to use a narrow Coil Cleaning Brush to slip through the openings and help knock down some of the built-up dust. Get as much as you can. Don’t use anything that might puncture the coil or damage the refrigerator.
