Refrigerator Maintenance Tips

Refrigerator Maintenance TipsManual-Defrost Freezers/Refrigerators

Manual defrost freezers/refrigerators do not require much maintenance.

You do need to remove the food from the freezer/refrigerator if frost accumulates on the freezer walls with a thickness of about half an inch. Then make sure to either turn off the thermostat or unplug the unit before allowing the frost to melt completely.

Next, after the frost has completely melted, turn the unit on once again. Once it has reached its operating temperature, which may take a few minutes, restock the unit with food.

Self-defrosting freezers/refrigerators

With the self-defrosting freezer/refrigerator, you do not need to manually defrost your unit. The self-defrosting freezer/refrigerator heats up its cooling coils slightly and subsequently melts any frost accumulation on the coils every 6 to 8 hours. The remaining water then drains into a shallow pan at the bottom of the freezer/refrigerator.

You also do not need to empty the pan; the water in it will evaporate by itself. However, as it may begin to smell bad over time, you may want to remove the pan for periodic cleaning. This can be done by detaching the lower grill and sliding the pan out the front of the freezer/refrigerator.

Please note: A potential health concern can arise if mold grows in the drain pan. You may want to consider cleaning the drain pan periodically if you are either sensitive to mold or your drain pan is removable.

Under your freezer/refrigerator is a cooling fan as well as a set of coils needed to be cleaned at the minimum once a year. You can recognize the coils as they look like a wide radiator or they may look like a grate. You will then need to unplug the freezer/refrigerator. Then, use a Refrigerator Condenser Brush, which is available in the parts section of our website, followed by a vacuum cleaner to clean any pet hair, lint, or other various materials from the coils.

If the interior or gasket of the freezer/refrigerator needs to be cleaned, try using the product Refrigerator Cleaner for the cleaning of the surfaces. This product may also be found in the parts section at

Odors in the freezer/refrigerator may pose an inconvenience but baking soda will provide a good solution.
