Taking Care of Compact Refrigerator Freezers

Posted by AldoMoore on February 10th, 2015

A compact refrigerator is a must for students. It preserves food and drinks helping the user to minimize shopping and you are able to save money. But, if you want to get the most from a fridge, you should know how to take care of the unit. Here are some helpful tips in this regard.

  1. 1.       Packing it up

When taking your small-sized refrigerator to your room, make sure to keep it upright all the time. Laying it horizontally will damage the mechanisms inside designed to keep the food items cold. If at all you need to lay it down, you may keep it flat on its back. Try to straighten it up at the first chance. And when plugging it in, wait for a few hours. Let the system correct any damage which may have happened as a part of transportation.

  1. 2.       Be careful when placing the unit

When positioning the refrigerator, take care to keep it away from all sources of heat; sun or any heating appliance. You should also avoid placing the fridge in the unheated areas like your garage. If the temperature goes below 60º, the compressor will stop working. This will slow down the process of freezing. Besides, do not place the unit on an uneven surface.

  1. 3.       Clean it as often as possible

Make sure that you clean your refrigerator whenever you can. You don’t have to switch it off if you need more light to see into the interior. Take away all the contents and removable shelves. Wash the shelves using soapy water. Do not forget to remove the stains or they may cause harmful bacteria to grow in the unit. Mix some dish wash in water and dip a piece of towel in it. Wipe the interior and sides of the fridge using this towel. Follow it up with a piece of cloth dipped in clean water.

You can also cut a lemon into two pieces and place them inside the refrigerator. Lemon absorbs odors; your machine will smell fresh all the time.

  1. 4.       Organize the food items well

Reorganize the food items in your refrigerator at least once a week. Check for expiry dates on the package and throw away those items you don’t need. The best way to take care of this issue is to buy see-through containers from restaurants.

  1. 5.       Maintain a uniform temperature

Monitor the temperature inside your refrigerator once a day. Do the needful if it fluctuates a lot. Excessive heat will freeze the unit and too low a temperature will spoil the things stored inside.

You should also make sure that the coils in the unit stay protected from dust and debris. Wiping it with a clean cloth at least twice in a week will do fine. This will make sure that the equipment stays in working condition for a long time.

Take good care of compact refrigerator freezers. They are built to serve you for a long time. But, proper maintenance is a must if you want to get the most from your investment.
