That’s the sound I heard when I walked into my kitchen the other morning.

It was coming from our refrigerator. I knew what it meant. I was past due on cleaning my refrigerator coils.

Did you know that by spending just 15-20 minutes cleaning your refrigerator coils you can eliminate refrigerator problems and  keep it running in top shape?

Clean refrigerator Coils

You can eliminate repair calls by almost 70% and extend the life of your appliance just by keeping it clean! Yep, that’s right keep your refrigerator coils clean and you could have your refrigerator for years and years like mine! {although NOT ideal if you want to beg your husband for a new one lol}

To keep the repairman away, all you need is a $10 Coil Brush!   I LOVE this thing! Seriously it has saved me numerous times when I thought the big cold box was failing me.

When the coils are clogged with dirt and dust, they can’t release heat properly.  This results in  your compressor working harder and longer than it was designed to, using more energy and shortening the life of your fridge.


How to Clean Refrigerator Coils

  • Pull out refrigerator
  • Unplug electrical cord
  • Remove Toe Grill to access coils
  • Use coil brush and vacuum to clean the coils.   The coil brush is bendable so it will fit in tight areas, and the brush is designed to grab and hold the dust and dirt.  Don’t be afraid to push it into tight spots and in between all of the coils.  Use your vacuum to clean up the dust as you go, and vacuum the brush each time you pull it out.
  • Continue until no more dirt is pulled out with the coil brush.
  • Plug fridge back in, push back in place and replace toe grill.

*Do this at least twice a year, or more often if you have pets that shed.
