Refrigerator/Beverage Center Repair


Do you think that it is enough to buy a refrigerator, install it in the kitchen, load food and that's it - the equipment will work for many years? This is not entirely true: it is necessary not only to deliver and install, but also to follow the rules for operating the refrigerator for its durable and trouble-free operation. Learn how to properly use this appliance to avoid future problems. Transportation The refrigerator can only be transported vertically, that is, standing up. It is unacceptable to tilt more than 40 degrees, and even more so to lay on its side. What is the threat? If the angle of inclination of the equipment during transportation is greater, then the oil from the motor-compressor can flow into the circuit. By turning it on, you run the risk of a breakdown from the first hours - a blockage of the capillary pipeline. In this case, dirty repair work and unnecessary expenses are ahead, because the service center will probably refuse a warranty repair after an incorrect transportation. What if the cabinet does not fit vertically into the machine and the tilt angle is above 40 degrees? In this case, make sure that compressor tube is vertical position. You can find this tube on the motor: it is indicated by a special marking on the factory packaging. In this case, the oil will still get into the circuit, but only in the part where the pressure is lowest. When starting, Freon will not entail oil, and it will flow back into the engine in a stream. How to place equipment correctly? Correct installation of a new household refrigerator assumes complete isolation from heaters and radiators. Install it in a cool and well-ventilated area. Also, do not place near gas ovens and electric stoves. Also, experts do not advise placing near the southern windows, through which direct sunlight will penetrate daily onto the body. Oddly enough, the best place to install is with a draft. If the temperature of the kitchen area is increasing due to warm floors, select a place in an inactive area. Or consider in advance when equipping such a floor that electrical appliances will be installed on it. Installation Before releasing the movers and installing the refrigerator, check the package contents, re-read the warranty card and check the functionality. Only after making sure that all the components are available, that the warranty is filled out correctly and that the equipment is in good working order, let the store representatives go. If something went wrong, make a claim on the spot and in fact, otherwise it will be difficult to prove something later. Installation requirements: Room humidity should not exceed 80%. If there is nothing to measure the humidity, pay attention to the walls, floor and ceiling of the kitchen - if you notice condensation, the humidity is too high. Provide adequate ventilation. If you find problems, you should clean the ventilation ducts. Pick the coolest spot in your kitchen. Pay attention to the climate class indicated on the information sticker. Are you planning to install 2 refrigerators at once or put a freezer next to it? Do not put them close to each other - ensure a distance of at least 2 cm. Also observe the rules for connecting to the power supply: Match the parameters of the equipment with the parameters of the power supply. If it works with a voltage of 220 V, connect to a two-phase power supply, 380 V - three-phase. Connect to a grounded power outlet for safe operation. Do not use extension cords, carriers and adapters - connection is permissible strictly to a stationary outlet in the wall. Cleaning cameras A refrigerator of any brand needs care: Samsung, LG, KitchenAid, Maytag, Whirlpool and others. Moreover, you need to take care of both old and newly purchased ones. Internal surfaces can be washed with a mild baking soda solution or chemical detergents without abrasive particles. Do not neglect also outdoor cleaning, but be careful: the coating should not be rubbed with brushes and brushes, as well as aggressive detergents. Soak a sponge in a baking soda solution, treat handles, plastic parts, sealant, walls, and other areas. Wash stainless steel surfaces especially carefully: it is best to buy a special tool for processing stainless steel surfaces so as not to damage them. Even if you bought a refrigerator with No Frost technology, this does not mean that you will not have to put it away. Light damp cleaning is recommended monthly. Your diligence will keep the cameras from smelling and contamination. Can you use fragrances and fresheners? If you are satisfied with the chemical smell of food, you can hang Christmas trees in the cells. But it is better to pay attention to special absorbents that will eliminate unpleasant "odors" and will not mask them due to chemical components. Cleaning the back wall is necessary not so much for hygiene reasons as for economy reasons. Cleaning the condenser (the metal grill on the back of the cabinet) will save you from wasting electricity. You can collect dust from the grill with a sponge, a damp cloth or a vacuum cleaner with a fine nozzle. We wish you long-term operation of refrigeration equipment and the absence of any problems with it!
