Refrigerator repairs can be very costly. If you follow these few tips you could save yourself the hassle and financial strain of a refrigerator repair.
To ensure you are drinking clean water you will want to change your water filter every six months. This will ensure you have clean water as well as collecting any dirt or sediment from getting through and protect the water valve.
When you change the water filter you also should clean the condenser coils (located either on the back or underneath of your refrigerator). You will want to use a coil brush to do this.
Avoid putting food near the vents of both the refrigerator and freezer to ensure good air flow.
For freshness and to absorb any odors you can put a box of baking soda in your refrigerator to absorb all those pesky leftover odors. A good rule of thumb to follow is to change this every six months as well.
