Generic Whirlpool SxS condenser cleaning question
Posted 02 April 2012 - 08:48 AM
With previous fridges, they've been nice and flat, and I just had to jam my condesner brush in there and give 'er a good scrubbing, and then repeat the process for all the nasty-looking parts at the back.
With this model, instead of the coils looking like this: Front ---> --------, the coils are laid out like this: Front ---> /\/\/\ . Now, I can see the advantages of this arrangement (more coil surface area), but how do I clean out those "valleys" in the middle that cannot be accessed with a condenser brush, much less my vaccuum cleaner? Is an air compressor (which I don't currently own) the only option?

beer is proof that god loves us and wants us to be happy-Benjamin Franklin
i've used a vacuum at the back to catch dust and comp air or a can of that keyboard cleaner for computers to blow thru from front

I have a 1.5 gallon air compressor and connect a blow gun.
This is similar to how I do it except I don't carry the compressor, just a 5 gallon air tank that I charge up to 120 psi the morning before service calls and keep in the van for all kinds of tasks: cleaning condensers, dryers vents, and even gas oven pilot orifices.
