Tips from a Fridge Repairman

John Czerniak, a Sears pro with 42 years of experience, tells how to avoid fridge headaches (and costly visits):
  • Vacuum the condenser coils underneath the fridge every six months ‑- more often if you have pets. Be sure to unplug the unit first and snap off the grate covering the coils.
  • Wipe down the rubbery gasket around the door each month. Rub the hinge side with petroleum jelly.
  • Fill up your freezer to prevent it from overworking. If it's empty, stock it with plastic containers of water.
  • For a fresh-smelling fridge, unplug the unit and then wash it out thoroughly with a bleach solution.
