Understanding your oven technology

The operation of a refrigerator is very simple and can be explained in a few steps. First, when you press the power button, the compressor starts spinning and starts producing heat, which is then captured by the condenser. The condenser is then cooled by the fan which takes cold air from the outside and pushes it through the condenser, allowing the liquid to be cooled. The cooled liquid is then routed to the evaporator, which is a metal coil located in your refrigerator. The cooled liquid then evaporates and forms frost, cooling the air in the refrigerator. After that, the food and drinks placed in the refrigerator are cooled. It is important to understand how a refrigerator works so you know how to properly maintain it. Be sure to clean the inside of the refrigerator regularly to remove bacteria and debris that can build up. Also make sure that the seals are clean and in good condition and that the air filters and condenser are cleaned regularly to ensure proper operation. You should also check frequently and change the cooling level to make sure the air inside the refrigerator is cool enough, and that no food is stored at a harmful temperature. Finally, be sure to leave a 10 cm gap between the wall and the refrigerator for good air circulation.

Clean and disinfect your refrigerator regularly

Regular cleaning and disinfection of the refrigerator is essential to maintain a healthy and safe environment in your kitchen. To clean your refrigerator, start by turning off the appliance and removing all food and other items from the inside. Then, using a damp cloth, clean the inside, shelves and vegetable compartment. Once everything is clean, take a disinfectant product to eliminate bacteria and germs that can accumulate over time. Once the surface is dry, put all food and other belongings back inside the refrigerator. To prevent the spread of bacteria, clean and disinfect your refrigerator at least once a month. You can also clean it more frequently if you notice suspicious stains or odors.

Check and replace the air filter

Check and replace the air filter The air filter plays a vital role in the efficiency and durability of your refrigerator. It is important to check and replace the air filter regularly. It is advisable to replace it every 6 months, or more often if you notice a build-up of dust. To check your air filter, examine it visually and check for signs of wear or accumulated dust. If you see these signs, it’s time to replace it. To replace the air filter, first remove it and clean the cavity where it was placed. Use a damp cloth and a non-abrasive cleaner to remove dirt and debris. Next, buy a fresh air filter that fits your refrigerator. Place it in the cavity and put the lid back on. You should also check that the filter is properly inserted and secured in the cavity. Once these steps are completed, the air filter is replaced and your refrigerator is ready to run like new.

Defrost the refrigerator regularly


Regular defrosting is an important step in maintaining your refrigerator. It is necessary to remove the ice that forms inside the refrigerator to prevent the air from circulating properly and thus affect the temperature and efficiency of the device. It is recommended to defrost the refrigerator every two to three weeks to ensure proper operation. To do this, start by unplugging the refrigerator and removing all food. You can then use a warm towel and a hair dryer or vacuum cleaner to remove the ice. You can also use an air defroster to remove ice faster. Once defrosting is complete, clean shelves and doors with a cleaning product to remove bacteria and odors. Do not forget to rinse with water to remove residue. Then leave the refrigerator open for a few hours so that it dries completely and then you can plug it back in and put your food back in.

Rearrange the contents of your refrigerator

Rearranging the contents of your refrigerator is one of the best ways to keep it running smoothly. Leave heavy products and soft drinks in the bottom of the refrigerator to prevent them from falling and damaging the food underneath. If possible, separate animal products from plant products and vegetables. Place perishable products like dairy, eggs, and meat at the bottom, where it’s coldest. Place non-perishable and household products, such as condiments and sauces, in the top and front compartments. Products with a limited shelf life should be placed at the front and used first. Fruits and vegetables should also be placed at the front, as they are foods that can spoil easily and are eaten more frequently than non-perishable products. Finally, wash pots and pans before storing, and store leftovers in airtight containers, as air can accelerate their deterioration.
