Top tips for looking after your fridge freezer
1. Keep it clean
Regularly cleaning your fridge freezer is essential for maintaining its performance and hygiene. Clean the shelves, drawers, and compartments with warm soapy water and wipe down the interior walls to remove any spills or stains. Make sure to also clean the rubber seals around the door to prevent any mould or mildew growth.
2. Check the temperature
Keep an eye on the temperature settings of your fridge freezer to ensure that it is maintaining the ideal temperature for food storage. The ideal temperature for the refrigerator compartment is between 1-4 degrees Celsius, while the freezer compartment should be kept at -18 degrees Celsius. Use a fridge thermometer to monitor the temperature regularly.
3. Organise your food
Proper organisation can not only save you time but also help maintain the efficiency of your fridge freezer. Keep similar food items together and use clear containers or zip-lock bags to store leftovers. Ensure that air can circulate freely by not over-packing the shelves and drawers, as this can obstruct the cooling process.
4. Defrost regularly
If you have a freezer compartment that is not frost-free, it is important to defrost it regularly to prevent ice build-up. This will help maintain the freezer's efficiency and prevent overworking the compressor. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on how to defrost your freezer safely.
5. Check the door seals
The rubber seals around the door are crucial for maintaining the cold air inside the fridge freezer. Over time, these seals may become worn or damaged, causing the cold air to escape and the appliance to work harder to maintain the desired temperature. Regularly inspect the door seals and replace them if necessary.
7. Avoid placing hot food inside
Avoid putting hot food directly into the fridge freezer, as this can raise the internal temperature and force the appliance to work harder to cool down. Allow the food to cool to room temperature before placing it in the fridge or freezer to maintain its efficiency.
7. Keep the coils clean
The coils at the back or underneath your fridge freezer can become dirty and covered in dust and debris over time. This can impact the cooling efficiency of the appliance. Clean the coils regularly using a vacuum cleaner or a brush to remove any dirt and improve the performance of your fridge freezer.
By following these top tips for looking after your fridge freezer, you can ensure its longevity, maintain food safety, and keep your energy bills in check.
