1. Inspect the door seals.

A loosened seal permits amazing air to seep out, wasting energy and creating your fridge to function tougher than it requires to. Initially ensure the seals are free of food residue. (Clean them about two times a year, using a tooth brush and a remedy of baking soft drink as ΨΥΓΕΙΑ well as water.) After that attempt the dollar-bill test: Shut the bill in the door so that half remains in and half is out. If it slips out conveniently, you might need to have the door seals checked by a pro.

2. Maintain the coils clean.

When the condenser coils (see complying with web page for extra on components) are covered with dirt, the refrigerator can't run effectively. Two times a year, draw the equipment from the wall surface to disclose the coils in back (or break off the grille, if the coils are on the bottom front), disconnect the fridge, as well as vacuum with the brush accessory.

3. Establish the ideal temperature.

Keep the fridge in between 37 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit as well as the freezer at 0 degrees.


4. Fill it up (also if you never ever prepare and just have takeout).

Fridges require "thermal mass" (a.k.a. great ΕΠΙΣΚΕΥΗ ΨΥΓΕΙΑ ΑΘΗΝΑ deals of stuff) to preserve low temperature levels. Awesome foods as well as drinks help soak up warm air that streams in when you unlock. If you're the eat-out type or your fridge is also large for your needs, keep a couple of jugs of water in there.

5. Be prepared.

If the power goes out, keep the doors closed as well as make use of foods from the kitchen. An unopened fridge will keep food safe for four hrs; a freezer will certainly maintain its temperature for two days if complete and also 24-hour if half-full.
