Your refrigerator is the only appliance in your home that runs 24/7. While a refrigerator requires less care than some other appliances, it cannot be ignored completely. Like anything else, the lifespan of your refrigerator will directly correlate with the amount of work you put into it. Try applying these three maintenance tips to avoid costly refrigerator repairs.
Close the Door
Keeping the refrigerator door open could lead to opening your wallet for repairs. When the refrigerator door is left open, it forces the compressor to work harder to keep everything cold. When the compressor is overexerted, it heats up and will often shut off in order to cool itself down. This increased wear and tear could cause the compressor to break down prematurely.
Adequate Air Flow
In order for your refrigerator to stay cool, it must release heat to the outside. If you block that heat from escaping with books, papers or cabinets, you are making a costly mistake.
Clean Condenser Coils
Your fridge’s condenser coils, typically located under or behind the unit, can collect dust and debris over time. It is important to clean the coils at least twice a year, usually right before summer when the refrigerator has to work the hardest. When these coils are dirty, it makes it harder for your unit to release heat. The simple maintenance of these coils will lead to a longer and happier life for your refrigerator.
These tips will help keep your refrigerator running smoothly, but sometimes repairs are unavoidable.

Nobody ever wants to find mold growing in their refrigerator, but it is bound to happen to some of us. This guide tells you everything you need to know about mold in your fridge; including where to look for it and how to kill it.
What is mold?
Mold is a type of fungus that can grow virtually anywhere, indoors or outside. Mold spreads by reproducing microscopic spores. When humans come in contact with these spores, they can cause symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, headaches, and respiratory infections.
Several thousands of different types of mold exist, ranging from green fuzz to black slime. All of them have one thing in common, though: you don’t want to find any of them growing in your refrigerator.
Why does mold grow in refrigerators?
Your refrigerator provides favorable conditions for mold to grow and reproduce. It is a dark environment with minimal air circulation and a lot of moisture (a key factor in mold growth). Some places that mold is known to grow in the refrigerator include:
Interior walls and shelves. Mold can grow anywhere on the inside walls or shelves of your refrigerator, especially if there is pooling water that isn’t immediately cleaned up.
On your food. If you have ever left something in the refrigerator for far too long, you have seen firsthand how mold can grow on your food.
On the gasket. The gasket, also known as the rubber door seal is a common hiding place for mold.
What do I do if there is mold in my fridge?
Don’t panic if you spot mold growing in your refrigerator. In most cases, it can safely be removed with a little bit of baking soda, warm water, and 20 minutes of your time. Just follow these steps:
Remove all food from your refrigerator. Throw away any items that the mold has come in direct contact with, as well as any uncovered foods in close proximity. Unopened foods stored in airtight containers can safely be kept.
In a bucket, combine 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 1 quart of warm water.
Dip a clean cloth in the bucket, and begin wiping down all of your refrigerator’s walls, shelves, and drawers. Gently scrub these areas until all visible signs of mold growth are gone. As a precaution, also wipe the outside of food containers and plastic packaging.
Pour out the baking soda solution, and refill the bucket with warm water.
Using a new cloth, wipe down every surface that came in contact with the baking soda solution. Repeatedly dip the cloth in the warm water until there is no trace of baking soda in your refrigerator.
Thoroughly dry the interior and replace your food.

If you are thinking about purchasing a new refrigerator for your home, one of the first things you will have to consider is style. Generally speaking, there are four different types of refrigerators: top freezers, bottom freezers, side by side, and French door.
Each of these styles offers its own unique set of pros and cons, which we will cover below.
The top freezer layout is probably what you picture when you think of a refrigerator. In this style, the frozen food compartment sits atop the fresh foods section. It is the most common type of refrigerator.
The top freezer refrigerator flipped upside down. This model features the frozen food section at the bottom of the appliance, usually accessible via pull-out drawer.
Side By Side
Side by side refrigerators are exactly what they sound like. Instead of being divided into a top and bottom section, they are split left and right with two doors that open from the middle.
A hybrid of the bottom freezer and side by side styles. This three-door refrigerator has two fresh food doors at the top, and a pull-out freezer at the bottom.
