Refrigerator Care & Maintenance Tips

Repair Refrigerators Last Updated 09/29/2015
  • Before you begin to clean your refrigerator always unplug it from the electrical outlet. Hand wash, rinse, and dry all surfaces before plugging the unit back in.

  • Use a soft clean sponge or cloth and mild detergent to clean the refrigerator. Do not use steel wool or any types of abrasive cleaners.

  • For stainless steel exteriors, you can use a commercially available stainless steel cleaner. Be sure to follow the cleaning manufacturer's recommendations and instructions when using a stainless steel cleaning product.

  • When you clean removable interior shelves, allow them to warm up to room temperature before you start to clean them. If they are exposed to warm or hot water directly in the fridge there is a risk they could crack or break from thermal shock

  • The door gaskets should be cleaned regularly to ensure that the doors make a tight seal.

  • To help remove odors from the refrigerator's interior you can wash the inside with a mixture of backing soda and warm water. Mix 2 tbsp. of baking soda with 1 qt. of water. Allow the baking soda to completely dissolve into the mixture to prevent scratching to the surfaces of the refrigerator.
