Tip & How-To about Refrigerators

FRIDGE NOT COOLING THAT GOOD

AT THE BOTTOM FRONT OF THE FRIDGE, UNDER DOOR, REMOVE VENT COVER. JUST SNAPS IN PLACE. USE A SHOP VAC OR VACCUUM CLEANER WITH A SMAL ENOUGH HOSE TO INSERT THROUGH THE BOTTOM OF FRIDGE. CLEAN COIL AS GOOD AS POSSIBLE FROM ALL DUST AND DEBRIS. DO NOT USE ANYTHING POINTED OR SHARP BECAUSE COIL CAN BE PUNCTURED OR DAMAGED. ONCE COIL IS CLEANED YOUR FRIDGE WILL START GETTING COLD AGAIN!!!!

how do i replace the cracked drip pan in the french door refigerator


  • Unplug the refrigerator from the power source and remove the decorative vent cover at the bottom of the fridge under the door. Some vent covers are screwed on but many just snap onto clip that hold them in place.

  • Pull gently on the exposed front edge of the drip pan and ease it out towards you. The drip pan slides on runners on each side of the bottom of the refrigerator. It may be full of liquid or debris so go slow and steady and then discard it.

  • Line up the new drip pan with the two side guides beneath the refrigerator and slide into place. Use the flashlight if to make sure the drip pan is in the groove on each side.
  • Clean and replace the vent cover by clipping or screwing it into place. Plug the refrigerator back into the power outlet

    refridgerator is not working will not get cold


    Here is the basic idea on how to keep the refrigerator, air conditioner, or vacuum cleaner to work properly. Air is moved by an electric fan or blower in order for that product to work properly. If air movement is blocked the fridge won't get cold, the central air conditioner won't cool enough, the vacume cleaner won't clean as well. Check on your fridge's air movement by inspecting the bottom of the fridge for dust and cob webs. Remove the front bottom clip-on plastic grill. Or also even access the lower back of the fridge by removeing the screws holding up the heavy cardboard cover to see inside. Blockage of air flow will prevent a fridge from getting cold. Just like a vacume cleaner stops working when the bag is filled with dust and fibers.

    The air could be blocked by the accumulation of dust and fibers. Look under your fridge if it is cloged, it will look just like the stuff on a dirty central air filter.

    Dust and fiber buildup blocking the fridge's air movement from back to front (or visa-versa) of your fridge will slowly (years) prevent how good it cools. The build-up of dust and cobwebs prevents your fridge from cooling (more specifically prevents the heat to disapate from the metal heat disipating fins attached to the metal tubes to be blown off by the fans air). OK! Remedy for a vacuum cleaner REPLACE THE CLOGED VACUUM BAG.

    Remedy for your fridge manually REMOVE THE CLOGING DUST AND FIBERS FROM UNDER YOUR FRIDGE. SORRY fridge manufacturers do not provide a dust filter like the vacume cleaner and central air systems manufacturers do. You have to figger out the best way you can clean it. Possibly vacuum with a crevice tool, or use a small brush than vacuum. The extreme would be unplug the fridge ( so you won't get electrocuted) bring a water hose into the kitchen and spray water at cobweb buildup at the bottom fridge, than wet vac the floor then wait 20 minutes to dry before pluging the fridge back into the electric outlet.
    When you stand in front of your fridge and you hear the fridge electric motor turn on, the fan will blow air.The fridge

    NOT COOLING PROPERLY IN THE DOWN CHAMBER OF DOUBLE DOOR


    remove bottom vent cover at front of fridge. just clips in place. look under neath and you should see a coil. its probaly caked with dust. use a shop vac or vaccum cleaner with small enough hose to insert under the fridge directly to the coil. remove all dust. dont use anythng sharp or pointed to clean coil, as coil can be punctured.

    Kirby Vaccuum Cleaner:


    likely a broken belt. turn vac over and see if roller turns free. if it does the belt is broken. turn the handle on front of vac. turn latch under headlight and remove head. open bottom plate and return handle to normal position. belt and brush roll will lift out. reverse procedure to install. directions are usually printed on the head of vac under headlight.
