To reduce the need of repairs, use the following preventative measures. Proper maintenance and care is essential in keeping your refrigerator running efficiently. Improper care will cause your unit to overwork by using more electricity to keep your food cold than if properly maintained. By following these tips, you can prolong the life of your refrigerator and avoid many costly repairs.

Always ship refrigerators upright. Placing the refrigerator on the side may cause a Freon leak that will prevent cooling. Placing refrigerator on its back will damage the condenser coils.
Stay away from overheat
Locate refrigerators away from heat sources like your range, a radiator, or a sunny window. To prevent overheating and system failure, do not locate the refrigerator near anything that can restrict the airflow to the motor, coils and compressor. Also, do not place refrigerators on top of carpeting because most condensers are located under the refrigerator and carpeting retains heat, causing the compressor to overwork.
Directly to outlet
To avoid burning out the compressor, always plug the refrigerator directly into the wall. If you absolutely need to run an extension chord, make sure a heavy duty, 3-pronged extensions cord. If unsure, consult the manufacturer specifications in the user guide.
Dont Put It In The Garage
Never run frost-free refrigerators with freezer compartments in unheated areas with air temperature below 60 degrees F unless they are specially designed for such conditions. When the air temperature goes below 60 F, the compressor runs less, keeping temperatures in the refrigerator compartment cold enough for fresh food but not cold enough in the freezer compartment to keep food quality there. At air temperatures below 40 F, the compressor stops running, so the freezer compartment rises to air temperature and food thaws and spoils. Also below 32 F, water melted during the automatic defrost cycle may freeze again and block air passages.
Cleaning Coils
Clean condenser coils regularly by gently brushing off buildup that may cause overheating.
Cleaning Seals
Regularly clean the seals in order to maintain proper temperature control and system efficiency
Sweep or vacuum dust and other debris under and around your refrigerator to promote good airflow and temperature.
