Refrigerator Checklist - Spring 2013

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Refrigerator Repair 26 March 2013 · 2,281 views

refrigerator spring fridge check list
Spring 2013 is finally here! When I think about spring, I think, "Oh, goodie: Refrigerator Season!" Why do I get excited and squeal like a little piglet in a donut shop about Refrigerator Season? Because I know my phone is about to explode with a whole lotta high-dolla warm refrigerator repair calls. Here are five simple things you can do to your refrigerator right now to keep your beer tooth-crackin' cold right on through the up-coming summer heat wave.

1. Clean your refrigerator condenser

This video shows you the basic condenser cleaning technique for most refrigerators. A special vacuum hose attachment and a condenser cleaning brush will help you kick some condenser bootay without risking damage to the tubing and causing a refrigerant leak.

2. Clean, gap-check, and replace-as-needed your refrigerator door gaskets

Use some Simple Green to wipe down the door gaskets and their mating surface on the refrigerator cabinet. Check for gaps, tears, or sags all the way around the perimeter of the door where the gasket meets the cabinet. If you see any gaps or damage to the gaskets, it's time to replace 'em. RepairClinic carries a complete line of replacement gaskets for all brands and models of refrigerators, all with a one year guarantee.

3. If your refrigerator has a digital display, make sure it's plugged into a surge suppressor

A digital display on a refrigerator (or any appliance) is a sure sign that it has at least one electronic control board in it. These electronic boards are just like the electronic boards used in your computer and they are subject to the same vulnerabilities as your computer. And, just like you would always use a surge suppressor to protect your computer from voltage spikes and other junk coming in on the power lines, you need to do the same thing with your home appliances that use electronic boards, which include almost all appliances manufactured within the last few years.

4. Replace your refrigerator water filter

This will both protect you from gookus in the water as well as prevent flow and pressure problems with your dispenser or ice maker. We carry a complete line of refrigerator water filters for all brands and models all at great prices and conveniently delivered to right to your home.

5. Beat the stink!

With warmer temperatures come more odors. Use this inexpensive refrigerator deodorizer to gobble up odors in your refrigerator and keep it smelling clean and fresh.

Uh.... how could you? You forgot to mention the most important item that must be on any fridge checklist . The reason we strive to make these things work... Beer!

An excellent highlighting of the raison d'être for a refrigerator's very existence!  Domo for bringing that into focus, Brother Durham.  Although I did mention keeping beer tooth crackin' cold in the intro paragraph, I could have-- and probably should have-- elaborated just a bit on why we have refrigerators in the first place.  Inspired by your wisdom here, I made sure to highlight this in the latest issue of the Appliantology newsletter, which features this blog post.

Piglet in a donut shop? Lol I guess that's a northern fanciful version of saying what us uncouth southen folk say... "happier than a pig in slop" where "slop" is the pc version of "sh*t." I guess we just aint as cultured down here... donut shop.. Ha!

I was going for that kind of frenzied, mindless imagery but done in a little less clichéd way.  That was the best I could come up with.  Yeah, needs work.  I'll see if I can do better next time.  

Lol no worries, I'm just busting your... uh... donuts(?)
